The best room of the house.

The air freshener really helps.

Instead of a hole in the door, how about adding a window or skylight to this dark bathroom?

The clump of hair is impressive.

It’s rare to see a home in Phoenix without a patio cover.  Perhaps they tore it down?  There are holes in the wall above the sliding doors.  By the way, did you notice the cat under the table?

At least the air conditioner is still there.
