Eventually, only a bare concrete ceiling was exposed. The fiberglass was hanging there for a few good decades, and Irwin and his friends cleared it all out before planning their next step as they came closer to their great discovery. Irwin had no idea that the project would take so long, and he began to feel a little awkward when it came to his friends. He initially only asked for a little help in forming a stable and reliable entrance to the shelter. Now, his friends were practically managing the entire project alongside him. But not to worry, they, too, were in for a surprise.
Meanwhile, Irwin was thinking of a way to cover or disguise the entrance of the shelter. There was no way he could leave it looking like this. Opportunities make a thief, and if he would have left as it was, he would be calling for trouble. He had to protect it and seal it, and working on the inner part, which was underground, was just not enough. Irwin was so eager to find out the mysteries of this place; however, he had to prioritize his work, and disguising the entrance came first.
There Was More to Come
What Irwin and his friends came across now really took the wind out of their sails. After entering the shelter, they looked up and realized the space's ceiling was covered in fiberglass. And not only that, the fiberglass was tearing off.
Irwin knew that if some of that fiberglass came in contact with the skin, it can irritate it, and even worse, it can cause permanent damage to the lungs. Unfortunately, they had no way around this, and they had to strip the fiberglass completely off.
Optimism at Last
The ceiling project started off as a task of horrors, however, a sense of relief was about to knock on their door. They soon realized that the fiberglass was not attached to the ceiling. This meant they wouldn't have to spend hours on removing it, and they could simply pull it off.
This didn't mean it wouldn't be time-consuming. The ceiling was built at such an angle that they had to think of a creative way to remove the fiberglass. How long was this going to go on? No one could say.
Back Yard Home
Irwin got out his Shapr3D. He began designing what would soon be the entrance to the unknown. In his mind, he could almost picture what he was about to build, and the shelter below was pushed to the back of his mind. This sketch would soon turn into every child's dream. It would soon be an object of envy amongst his neighbors and not only because of the wonders he preserves beneath the ground.
He constructed a frame and added windows that at first resembled a big dollhouse but then soon enough turned into a small cozy room. The windows were attached, and the complete frame finally stood firm. When Irwin initially discovered that something was hiding beneath, never in a million years did he imagine that he would end up constructing this. Like many things in life, we make plans but never know what lies ahead.
A Secret in Life
Irwin got some windows and began cleaning them up from dried old paint and rust. He was building a structure without even realizing what he was building, and one of the greatest secrets of life was about to be revealed. This secret would teach him a lesson or two. What started off as a simple dig in the backyard was now about to explode into something that was there all along. He just had to open his eyes.
Irwin added the roof and painted the door and window frames, which turned out much better than he imagined. It was absolutely perfect. This was a great way to disguise the entrance to the shelter and an even better way to add color to his yard. It was warm and inviting, and...then it hit him. Irwin suddenly realized what the great mystery was and what was lying beneath his backyard all those years.
