Raw Sewage Running Through the House

August 6th, 2012 · 5 Comments

Did you watch last night’s episode of Hoarding: Buried Alive?  It’s titled “Tear It Down.”  The home owners neglected their home so much that the ceiling had caved in in places, mold grew on the walls, and, even worse, the septic tank backed up and spilled into the house!  You could see the septic water flowing in the hallway.  This is a screen shot of the fecal/urine-soaked cluttered hallway.  [The other hoarding show, Hoarders, starts its new season next Monday, August 13.]

We’re Not Entertained

Four entertainment niches, media centers, or TV armoire cabinets that appear outdated today.

Remember these?  Armoires for your TV?

How about this media center?

ugly media TV center entertainment Gilbert Arizona home house for sale

Homes built in the mid- to late-1990s and early 2000s added entertainment niches for those big deep TV sets.  Now they are outdated and functionally obsolete.  They are a turn-off to younger buyers.

Do-it-yourself entertainment centers were very popular in Phoenix.  Not popular nowadays with wider, thinner TV sets.
