The bathroom toilet is the same one used on the International Space Station?  The can of ant & roach killer doesn’t instill confidence.

This is the master bedroom upstairs.  At least the drywall was installed.

Look What You Got!

September 3rd, 2014 · 6 Comments

The box reads, “Look what you got!”  We’re definitely seeing what these sellers “got.”  And it’s a lot of stuff.  Is that a Cabbage Patch doll?

The dining room features dog food bags, old carpet, and dusty ceiling fan blades.

Another cluttered bedroom.  The bag reads, “Last Chance,” as in last chance to impress buyers.

It’s not a bedroom closet.  It’s the bathroom shower with clothes on hangers on hangers.

The dining room.   Kinda ironic that this messy house has lots of plastic bags to throw things in and an Oreck vacuum to suck up the dirt.

The cleanest room in the house.

The carpet is 44 years old!  So is the dirt and bacteria.
