For All In Tents & Purposes

November 10th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Yes, a tent on the front yard. Right in front. Everyone can see it. The neighbors love it.

So much to offer.

The junk in front is an affront.

Side view of the front porch.

The living room.

We pan to the right to see more.

More to the right.

One more time to the right. And it just isn’t right.

A scary looking dog is guarding the precious belongings out back.

Bars on the windows.

Swimming pool included.

And they’ll throw in the BBQ grill too.

Tea-Stained Walls

October 25th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Bad patch job, no light bulbs, and a big hose coming out of the wall.

They went with an autumn color palette.

They should have staged this room with some pumpkins and corn shocks.

The good news is there are no popcorn ceilings anymore.

Vaulted ceiling.

Open floor plan.

Lots of natural light.

Master suite.

Endless possibilities.

A TV in the bathroom! Nothing like resting your head against the faucet while you stretch your head back to see the TV.

Tornado In Kingman?

September 8th, 2017 · 8 Comments

Did a tornado or hurricane hit this Kingman, Arizona house? Good grief.

What happened?

Really?

Disaster scene.

???

This is a different fireplace than the one in the above photo.

What happened up there?

Messy bedroom with a hole in the ceiling.

Another hole in the ceiling.

And now an even bigger hole!

Explain that! The Kool-Aid guy visited?

Tanks, but no tanks. We’ll pass.

Special Entertainment

May 12th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Five more entertainment centers/media niches for you to enjoy.
This one was built for the tallest TV ever.

170512a

Beautiful craftsmanship, right next to a Craftsman weed eater.

170512b

These white-wash entertainment centers were very popular in the 1990s. Today, they cannot accommodate wider TVs.

A lot of time was spent building this media niche. How much time and money will need to be spent to remove it?

170512d

By the time you add a couch, the room is filled up.
