Japanese Curb Appeal

December 10th, 2017 · 3 Comments

I spent two weeks in Japan in November. Here are some ugly homes across Japan.

New roof needed in Kyoto, Japan.

Neglected entrance in Osaka, Japan.

Not much to look at near Hiroshima, Japan. But it does have stairs going up and a slide going down.

Bonus photo: a home seen in Montreal, Quebec, Canada during my visit there in October.

Lattice Check Out This Home

October 24th, 2017 · 1 Comment

The lattice out front adds flair to this Wickenburg, Arizona home. It sat on the market for nearly one year. It eventually sold for $38,000.

Padded seating on the front porch; a nice touch.

The door is open for you. Come inside.

Room with a view.

The toilet paper is draped across the dusty toilet tank lid.

Extended garage.

Covered patio out back.

Nothing wrong with the roof.

Updated electric panel.

Field of dreams.

Lush

July 9th, 2017 · No Comments
