Full House

Thank you to our reader Helen for finding this packed-to-the-gills home in Richmond, Texas. Here we see the sellers posing for the photo while their child hides under the table.

Another view of the missus and her million bed pillows.

170723richmondtx02

Last Chance To Run!! Creepy Halloween masks, cow skulls, a child hanging upside down, and a lot of visual distractions.

170723richmondtx03

We apologize for the nudity, but someone “stole” her clothes.

170723richmondtx04

Too bad buyers can’t fully appreciate the features of this home. This room has nice flooring, a tall vaulted ceiling, and a big window.

170723richmondtx05

Sorry again for the nudity.

170723richmondtx06

Again, too bad it’s hard to appreciate the giant picture window and the nice fireplace.

170723richmondtx07

Here’s another view of this room.

170723richmondtx14

All that clutter would make me want to climb the walls too.

170723richmondtx08

The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.

170723richmondtx09

Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.

170723richmondtx10

Wonderful life. Fun.

170723richmondtx11

He’s counting all of the overhead lights.

170723richmondtx12

It’s Christmas year ’round.

170723richmondtx13

The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.

170723richmondtx15

Shoes are lined up on the stairs.

170723richmondtx16

Beware of pickpockets and loose women.

170723richmondtx17

Be nice or leave. Or the maid will give you the “brush” off.

170723richmondtx18

He’s waiting to join you in the shower.

170723richmondtx19

The back yard of this property reaches a canal. It’s a lovely shade of brown. When it rains, the cow urine & poop drains into the canal.

Home Office

Our reader Sarah wants to know why there are office chairs at this Wilmington, Delaware home. With laminate flooring, they probably roll around very well. Let’s hold a staff meeting and ask the cat if he knows.

When buying a home, be sure to check under the kitchen sink. You never know what you’ll find there. Mold/mildew, the seller’s shoddy repairs, etc.
