A WOMAN was delighted when she finally moved into her dream home – but nothing could've prepared her for the surprise lurking underneath the floorboads.
Em, who posts under the acronym @funkyglassworks, took to TikTok and shared a video where she could be seen ripping up the old flooring.
In the clip, she teases: "Guess what we found under the floor in the house we just bought…
Ripping up this flooring and the sub-flooring took forever, but we found a hot tub – and an entire empty indoor swimming pool."
She continues: "Our current idea is to turn it into an indoor koi pond and atrium with lots of plants.
"Maybe restore the hot tub but for now it'll be an indoor skate park. Stay tuned!"

In a second clip, Em goes on to give more details about the shocking discovery.
"When we were buying this house six weeks or so ago, we were told that at one point there was an indoor swimming pool – but that the swimming pool was gone and that they had turned the swimming pool into a ginormous game room," she says.
"So, we assumed the pool was filled long ago, there's brand new flooring over the top and we're good to go."
Em continues: "Then the home inspection came back and it said that this game room's floor was wavy…
"So, we started ripping up that floor and then suddenly we look down and we were standing on top of a 12ft deep hole.
"The pool is not filled in at all!"
She adds: "We're not financially prepared for an indoor swimming pool – we have no idea what we're going to end up doing."
The post has since racked up a whopping 6.2 million views and been flooded with comments from shocked social media users.
"WHAT A FIND!! Indooors?!!!!!" enthused one.
