Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

ahe discovery of two 1915 London County buses has brought to a halt work on clearing the site of a demolished bungalow at Goring-by-Sea, West Sussex. The vehicles were used to make up part of the interior of the bungalow, believed to have been originally built at the turn of the century. Their discovery astonished the workmen as they had been well and truly incorporated into the seaside home, no doubt fulfilling the fantasies of an avid bus enthusiast. Modern enthusiasts hope to retrieve them for their historic, if not downright eccentric, interest.
