Rope Lights

August 24th, 2014 · 8 Comments

Thank you, Matt, for sending us this tidy Minocqua, Wisconsin home.  Pour yourself a drink and we’ll make a toast.  There’s plenty of booze and glasses.  The flyswatter’s a nice touch.

As we venture down this room, we see rope lights on the left and on the right.

What’s that figure in the far right (above photo)?  Let’s zoom in and take a look.  It’s a mannequin!

More rope lights.

Looking back the other direction, we can see the mannequin and more seating.  Is that wood sculpture a dog attacking a goat?

A room addition off of the house addition.  That’s Rick from Pawn Stars on TV, covering his face in embarrassment.

Is that a real dog sticking its head out the doggie door or is it a fake dog head to scare away burglars?

And more rope lights in another room.

Involved Sellers

August 6th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Some sellers like to get involved with the sale of their home.  They want to be a part of every process.  Including real estate photography.

This seller is letting buyers know how relaxing his home is.  He’s taking a nap!

She has something on her hands, but it isn’t time.  Otherwise, she’d turn off the TV and remove the dirty cat tower.
