Too close for comfort

This guy was hiding a couple steps off my path. I didn't see him because I was carrying material on my shoulder, Then I heard a loud rattling, 3-1/2-footer.

Jobsite or Batcave

Furnace or batcave?

Surprise occupants found in the furnace during a home inspection. I think they were more surprised to see me than I was to see them.
