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.

Buyers will like the tall ceiling too.

Vintage wallpaper.

Built-in shelves plus a desk complete this room.

Gourmet kitchen.

Great view out the kitchen window.

Built-in pantry too.

Formal dining room.

Living room with custom paint.

Cozy fireplace.

Bedroom.

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.
