According to NdS –
4 giugno 1883 –
Fu messo in chiaro, che le case dell’isola 3, reg. VIII, segnate coi no.29 e30 communicano tra loro, per mezzo di un passaggio di quattro scalini, posto fra i due atrii.  Nella casa no 29, a destra del tablino rispondente sul limitare della citta dal lato sud, trovasi una discesa con apposita scalinata, per la quale si accede ai piani sottoposti, che a declivio vanno verso il muro di cinta della stesso lato meridionale.  Puo scorgersi ad evidenza, che ambedue le suddette case furono gia frugate nel tempo delle primitive esplorazioni, allorche andavasi in cerca di oggetti senza alcuno intendimento scientifico. Infatti mano a mano che vanno sgombrandosi i terreni, si manifestano grandi cunicoli praticati da esperti artefici, i quali, lavorando per le loro sotterranee ricerche, dimenticavano ivi una lucerna moderna.
(4th June 1883 - It was made clear, that the houses of VIII.2, marked with the nos. 29 and 30 communicate with each other, by means of a passage with four steps, placed between the two atria.  In the house no. 29, to the right of the tablinum on the edge of the city on the south side, there is a descent with a special staircase, by which you access the floors below, which slope towards the city wall of the same southern side.  It can be seen clearly, that both the aforementioned houses were already rummaged at the time of primitive explorations, when they went in search of objects with no scientific understanding. In fact, little by little, as the land is cleared, large tunnels are seen made by expert craftsmen, who, working for their underground research, forgot a modern lamp there.).

VIII.2.29 Pompeii. May 2006. Looking north at lower room.  Possibly the kitchen would have been in the forefront of this photo. Now ruined.
According to Boyce, in the west wall of the kitchen which was located on the lower floor were three arched niches. The only one well-enough preserved to be measured was 1.30m above the floor, 0.30 high x 0.40 wide x 0.20 deep. These were called lararia in Not. Scavi, 1883, 347.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.74, no.347)  
According to Giacobello, description from west wall of kitchen – no longer conserved. Sogliano described – near to the entrance to the garden one finds the corridor that led to the kitchen and to two rooms. In the kitchen there was a latrine, the niche of the Penates, and on the south wall a painted lararium with the Genius, the two Lares, and two serpents below.

VIII.2.29 Pompeii, on right, looking down to lower level at rear (partly VIII.2.30 on left). September 2005.  According to Jashemski, on the lower level at the rear of VIII.2.29, the western house, two flights of stairs led down to a terrace. 
In the eastern house, VIII.2.30, the rooms at the rear opened onto a narrow portico (2.20m wide) supported by columns joined by a wooden fence. A few steps led down from this portico to the small garden which had been built over and beyond the city wall by constructing a support wall on the lava ledge. In the middle of the garden was a pool.
On the street level, the rooms at the rear of this double house opened onto two wide terraces from which there would have been a magnificent view.
