Tub overflow drain is now reinforced with a nice double-thickness of screen mesh, so there will be no more uninvited guests.
J. figured out that the psychotically malfunctioning security gate was due to a sensor setting being too far over, and he cracked it open and fixed it within 5 minutes.
I realized that the security gate control housing looked... odd. Then I figured out that the odd bit was actually a completely separate panel, with a timer inside. HA! The puzzle of the non-controllable insane fence lighting is solved!
I found an apparently incomplete/uncovered outlet under the bathroom sink, which made me annoyed at the electricians. Then I found a strange faceplate with on/off and timer buttons. Hmm. *click* "HEY! I FOUND THE MISSING CONTROLS FOR THE TUB JETS!"
I was heading over to tell J. when a thought hit me, and I ended up laughing my ass off so hard I practically had to sit down.
"All these stupid puzzles making us crazy... attacked by roaches... *hee* We're not just moving in, we're attuning a fucking Manse!"
"*hee hee* Sorry, Exalted joke. Carry on. *hee*"
Unfortunately, the tub panel seems to have no power. There was, however, a trapdoor in the floor of the cabinet that was screwed shut. Aha! I merrily began unscrewing the panel, anticipating some wiring that needed to be reconnected, or a breaker to be flipped. Instead there was... a Hole. Leading down through the foundation. Not a "oh damn, roaches or mice might be able to get in through that" hole, but a "Holt shit, _I_ could fit through that" capital-H Hole.
*starts screwing the panel back on as fast as I can* "Nuh-uh, to hell with that, I've played Silent Hill 4..."
So, yeah. So far the house seems to be trying to be a cross between Exalted, Silent Hill, and Phantasmagoria. Awesome. ;D
