Pink Parfait

Thank you, Diana, for sending us photos of this Wesley Chapel, Florida home.

Slip covers on the couches!  Pink and tan are an interesting color combination.

The table to the right of the sofa is crooked.  Please straighten it.  Thank you.

That pink carpet sure looks like it’s holding up well.

Euro style cabinets were all the rage in the late 1980s & early 1990s.  What would make the kitchen divine would be to de-vine the plastic plants.

Step-Saver Kitchen

July 14th, 2014 · 2 Comments

You won’t have to take many steps in this kitchen.  Only a few feet to the washer and dryer, only a few feet to the stove and refrigerator.  And you’ll save even more energy but not wasting calories on opening cabinet doors under the sink.

Thank you, Barb, for sending us this photo of kitchen cabinets in Chicago, Illinois.  They reminded Barb of the John F. Long cabinets seen in Phoenix.

Thank you, Jillian, for sending us this photo of a Rialto, California kitchen.  The original cabinets (circa 1940s?) have been painted over multiple times.

Workshop House

June 23rd, 2014 · 6 Comments

The dog is not impressed with the flooring or clutter in this home.

Here’s how a bedroom looked in 2007.  He tried to sell it for $179,000 back then, but had no buyers.

And how that bedroom looked in 2014.  The bedroom is now a workshop.

Another bedroom filling up with stuff.

And another bedroom.  The seller can be seen in the mirror.

Here’s the kitchen from 2007 with John F. Long builder’s cabinets.

And how the kitchen looked in 2014.  Now with more clutter!  And still without a dishwasher.

I see cleaning supplies, but the kitchen sink is dirty.

To the left of the kitchen is a wall of nuts & screw drawers.

Another workshop inside the house.

The back yard.

The back yard offers lots of room for extra storage.

A photo of dead tree branches is a great touch.  By the way, this house sold for $23,000 in 2014, thanks to the condition of the house.

Dust Collectors

June 16th, 2014 · 5 Comments

We’re not a big fan of this style of kitchen cabinets.

They collect a lot of dust and grease.

Updating with stainless steel appliances doesn’t help.

Designed by local builder John F. Long in the late 1960s and used throughout the 1970s.

Can You Handle This?

April 24th, 2014 · 5 Comments
