European Bathroom

They do things differently on the continent.  Bathrooms, for one example.  This is a bathroom in a Dutch home for sale.  You ask the questions.  I don’t want to know.

Don’t Fall In

There is no safety barrier to this Des Moines, Iowa basement.  Be very careful.  Yes, on second look, that is a trap door that is opened to the left.  But it’s still a safety hazard if you leave the door up while you’re in the basement.

Maybe someone can explain why there is an electric outlet next to a pile of rocks, especially if it’s supposed to be a fire pit.

Organ Transplant

Thank you, Matt, for sending us this unusual Grand Rapids, Michigan house.  The sellers installed a full-sized organ in their home!!  Yes, these are photos of inside the house!  And no, it’s not a church, it’s a house.

There’s a YouTube video of the house here.  This 2nd video features the sellers but there’s no sound.

Optical Illusion

October 24th, 2014 · 3 Comments

This is a real untouched photo used to promote the sale of a house, just like 99% of the photos shown on this blog.  But what is it?  It took me a while to figure it out.  At first, I thought it was a sink drain with a cigarette butt in it.  Then I thought it was a door handle with the end cap missing.  But it’s something else.  Can you guess what it is?  And why did they take a photo of it?  [Answer in the comments section]
