PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A local family remodeling their house found a surprise from a famed Rose City author when tearing out the ceiling.

Jolynn Winter shared pictures on Facebook Wednesday of a backgammon box full of stuff left behind as a kind of time capsule by the previous owner of the home.

It turns out that Winter’s family bought their Portland home from “Fight Club” author Chuck Palahniuk ten years ago.

In the box, the family found a design of Palahniuk's remodel, an autographed copy of “Fight Club,” pictures and newspaper articles from the date the box was put in the ceiling and a letter to whoever found the box.

In the letter, Palahniuk wrote, "We hope you're as happy in this house as we've been."
