In 1963, what was originally one mans weekend project to expand the basement turned into a huge discovery that garnered national attention for one Turkish man. He lived in a small village in Turkey with his family, and decided that his growing family needed more space to breathe. Instead of hiring a local laborer, he decided to tackle this project for himself. Recent photos show what the tunnels look like now!
He started with a small hole in the wall of the basement, a seemingly innocuous place to start the renovation. It was just what he thought was a crack in the wall, but actually turned out to be something he could have never imagined.
