We called the owner of the house, and she said that it has always made that noise
My husband and I are in a weird predicament right now. We have been wanting to build a house from scratch for some time now, and we finally sold our first house in order to have enough money to start building our new one. We are so excited, but something happened that we did not expect. We sold our first house before we found the land that we want to build our new house on. We decided that we would have to end up renting for a little while, but a friend of a friend heard about our situation and offered us her house. She lives down south all winter long, so she has an empty house that she said we are welcome to use. We took her up on her offer, and we are now staying in her house. We are so thankful to be able to stay rent free, so it makes living in a very old house worth it. We have noticed some strange things in the house though. The furnace downstairs in the basement makes some really strange noises. At first, I thought that someone was down in the basement in the middle of the night, so I made my husband take his gun and go check. It was no one; it was the furnace. It makes sort of a banging noise. We called the owner of the house, and she said that it has always made that noise. We asked her if she wanted us to call an HVAC technician to take a look at it, and she said that it was not necessary. We cannot wait to start building our new home, but I am sort of excited to find out more creepy things about this old house.
