Oz cannot see any concealed doors or traps. An examination of the roof
reveals that it is made of wood, very old wood. There does appear that
in one corner, though the junk is piled up highest there, that there
might be some sort of trap door; a square-shaped bit of wood flooring
about two feet by two feet that doesn't seem to match the pattern or
grain of the rest of the wood ceiling.

So this leaves two possible exits (besides the water route); the door
with the pealing white paint on it and (possibly) a trap door.
