New homeowner surprises

So far in my new townhouse I have discovered a subfloor structure that evokes this response in every handy/building contractor who's visited: "Wow! What is that? I've never seen anything like that before!" and also a lot of dirt and the formerly hidden smell of cat pee but I can't tell exactly where, and contact paper in every cupboard where you can't remove the adhesive without scraping off the laminate...I'm sure I will find more fun things as I go.

What are some WTF/funny/scary things you've found upon moving into a new house or apartment?
