secret stairs

I found these stairs while looking through a hole under the addition of our house... these lead up to the original kitchen door to the outside and while they have been there for a while, from before the addition, I don't think they are original...

why don't I think they are original?

if you look behind them you will see a window arch (yes the basement has/d drop windows).

Someday I will go down and take pictures of the basement so you can see how big they were, they even opened it seems, but a pool, and the air-conditioner unit and the water heater all have seemed to force them to be closed up over the years.

OH, Kaptain Kaos seems to have been able to salvage a window that looked pretty bad too! Kudos to Kaos.
