Bargain Basement

June 28th, 2016 · 2 Comments

A few readers have asked recently if there are basements in the Phoenix area.  Very few.  Some in the older homes built in the 1920s-1940s.  Maybe a few in the 1980s-1990s.  The ground is too hard here.  Not worth the money and time to dig or excavate a basement.

And then this Glendale, Arizona home popped up this morning; sold for $60,000.  A fixer-upper with no air conditioning.  With a hole in the floor.

Here’s your basement!

This Home Can Be Yours, If the Price Is Right

Enjoy a nice relaxing bath here.

You’re supposed to say a prayer before using the toilet?

The front door needs some attention.  Along with the floor and the walls.

The only outdoor light in the kitchen comes from the hole in the cabinet!

They probably did us a favor by removing the carpet.

Same here.

Newer faucet and newer vanity add value to the house.

It’s a Dry Heat

June 24th, 2016 · No Comments

Temperatures reached 118F in Phoenix this past week and have been above 110F the other days.  Humidity has been as low as 7%.  It’s a dry heat.  It saps the moisture out of plants (and people).  Take a look at what happened to a tree!

Skinny Shower Entrance

June 23rd, 2016 · 4 Comments

Amateur bathroom remodel.  They thought it was a good idea to make the shower entrance only a foot & a half wide.  Probably no overhead light either.

Don’t Look Up

Martha complained that Rick’s smelly #2s could peel paint, but this is ridiculous!

Nothing to see up here, folks.  Keep looking down at the upgraded flooring and admire the custom drapery.

Careful the peeled paint doesn’t fall into your food in the kitchen.

The walls have potential.

Potentially a nice home office?

More wall patching.  At least they didn’t knot the curtains.

The covered patio provides a lot of shade.

The front porch roof is curved to help rainwater flow better.

Chocolate Bars

June 20th, 2016 · 4 Comments

Kitchen cabinets from the 1970s from home builder John F. Long.  They’re great dust collectors.

See how they contrast with white appliances.

They look like Hershey’s chocolate bars.

Good enough to eat?

It’s very rare for John F. Long homes to have windows over the kitchen sink.

You can paint the cabinets to give it a more contemporary look.  From the 1970s to the 1980s!

Eventually the dirt and dust in the cabinet grooves will match the dark grout on the walls.
