Made On Porpoise

Fish pond or water feature surrounded by dolphins.

Maybe these two dolphins escaped from the controversial Dolphinaris Arizona attraction in Scottsdale, Arizona? Someone thought it was a good idea to bring eight dolphins to mega-hot Arizona, so they can boil in the hot sun and hot water while humans pay to swim with them.

And then we see this.

Things get cheerful again in the living room. The circles on the ceiling are meant to distract you from the flooring.

Polka dots.

More ceiling damage in another room.

Custom Tile Work

September 14th, 2016 · 5 Comments

I saw this bathroom during an agent home tour.  Sunken bathtubs are common in that part of Phoenix.  But the two pieces of tile are not.  Why add the tile there and do the custom edging?  Unless the tiles are covering up something.

BBQ, Fire Pit, Or Fish Pond?

August 26th, 2016 · 3 Comments

This odd, submerged structure with the metal grate in the middle is either a BBQ grill or a fire pit where people gather around (with no seating) or it is a fish pond.  I doubt it’s a fish pond; there is porous flagstone on the bottom.
