Trash Day

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Save! Yes, save everything. Keep it all.

Collect more.

Put everything on display.

It’s fun to sleep in the living room when the bedrooms are full.

A case of foam lunch trays might not be enough.

Keeping the blinds closed makes a Phoenix home feel cooler in the hot summer.

Fine dining.

Kinda ironic that the trash can is empty.

At least the sink is empty, thank you.

Tidying up the kitchen was obviously a back burner agenda item.

Fine Tuning Needed

August 20th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Pamala for sending us photos of a Eugene, Oregon house. Pamala is impressed with the front of the house.

She writes, “Room looks the same right side up or upside down. I love a polished ceiling, don’t you?”

She wonders if the sellers could have waited to finish their construction project before selling. “Is that a crack in the wall by the window?”

Perhaps they have cable TV in the shower?

The seller did not repair the damaged bathroom vanity or paint the bathroom.

Aah. The feel of soft grass under your bare feet.

Not Short On Belongings

August 14th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Short sale in Mesa, Arizona, but long on the list of personal belongings on display.

Are you distracted enough by all the stuff to ignore the two missing tiles?

The closets are full.

The sellers ignored the ceiling.

Another view of the room.

And another view. Shoe‘dn’t the footwear be stored in a closet?

Stuffed full.

More ceiling damage.

He could not.

Kitchen islands are great for adding extra storage space.

Fine dining.

Too many cobwebs on the chandelier.

Missed opportunity to highlight the big picture window and vaulted ceiling.

One light bulb does not match the others.

What happened to the tiles by the drain?

Delaware Delight

This Harrington, Delaware home left an impression on our reader Sarah. Was it the right impression?

170730harringtonde01

Careful going up those stairs!

170730harringtonde02

Bright paint color or wallpaper border won’t make up for the other flaws.

170730harringtonde03

Quality ventilation system.

170730harringtonde04

Double wallpaper borders and sponge paint. Are you green with envy?

170730harringtonde05

Getting any inspirations for your own house?

170730harringtonde06

Watch your step.

Was the plumbing installed by a licensed contractor?
