I suppose I could be wrong, but I feel like this might be fake.
Obviously it was directionally drilled otherwise they likely wouldn't have installed a gas line through a skeleton. But it seems like the bones might be more hosed up from having been drilled and most likely backreamed when the pipe was pulled back from the other side.

We just moved into a "craftsman-style" bungalow built in 1920 recently used as a marketing office. The commercial additions are extremely puzzling but not destructive for the most part. I went to the planning office and pulled permits (before the current troubles), but Yakima is kind of the wild west and it has built up 100 years of tumors such as this:


A floating wall with two adjacent doors opening into the same space.

Why? Apparently it was used as an office for 4 people, with facing desks. Why does the wall intersect the molding like a map glitch? Because they couldn't shift the wall over further due to the front door:


(please forgive moving clutter, apparently hard to purchase furniture during a pandemic)

Why is there molding? Is that a picture rail? Nope, it's a covered opening, I know because whenever they added HVAC to it they put a vent right in the middle for some reason (also the vent "solution and trim are on both sides):


They also painted white over everything with sprayers, which we hope to address in the future. I mean everything too, except for where a cupboard door wasn't closed, leaving a paint shadow; but little velcro circles, blue sticky tack, it's all under there.

Here are some of the cool features we want to restore eventually:





My main complaint is they made the bathroom ADA compliant, which would be fine, except the clearances and rails mean there is no storage whatsoever save for the toilet roll holder and shelves in the hideous weird shower whose surround cuts into and covers a quarter of the window frame.

The bones were still buried when the pipe was pushed through.

The tunnel being drilled and the pipe being pushed through should have significantly disturbed the bones, though. Even in situ.

1920s is about right for baseboard registers. Some were giant things that poked out several inches from the corner of the wall and floor like that. I'm betting that a few were missing and the previous company didn't feel like spending the big bucks to get reproductions.

There are a couple left, although this one is missing the little lever.

How? It's apparent just from the picture that the soil is quite hard (not surpising after 1500 years, especially in an environment busy enough for the pipe to have been installed laterally).
Even assuming the bones weren't weakened by time and decay they'd have had nowhere to be displaced to.

I mean when you think about it, it's actually genius.

If no water goes in the drain, it can't ever get plugged up. This builder's avoided a common thing that people would be upset or annoyed about.

Instead you have a pool of fetid swamp water to stand in while you shower! Which in retrospect isn't all that different from a clogged drain is it?

There doesn't seem to be a lip to stop the water from flowing right out the door. Where it goes after that?
