These Portland, Oregon house photos were sent by a reader.  Thank you.  The basement wet bar/pot den could use some help with the ceiling.

Half of the ceiling is exposed.  Careful you don’t get insulation in your drink.

Selling Short In Tolleson, Arizona

January 11th, 2016 · 3 Comments

There continues to be a disconnect between short sale sellers and reality.  Short sale sellers are asking a big favor of the banks.  You’d think they’d care a little more about how their home looks.  Here’s another fine example.

Bud Light beer cans and bottled beer on the floor.  He’s a real tiger.

In bedroom #2, we see too much of too much stuff.

Hot and cold in this bedroom.  There’s a portable heater and a fan.

The chaos continues in the fourth bedroom.

Everything is easily accessible when it’s on the counter.  Except for extra light bulbs.

Something’s going on with the cooling system.  There’s an air vent in the dining room but they also installed a window air conditioner.

There was a family discussion about adding more furniture, but it was tabled.

Macramé & Latch Hook Rugs Were Popular In the 1970s

August 8th, 2015 · 3 Comments

Macramé was a popular craft activity in the 1970s.  Many different knots to learn.  Colored beads to add.  I helped my mom make macramé hangings when I was a kid.
