Catty Shack

March 7th, 2014 · 9 Comments

Thank you, Ben, for sending us photos of this Jerome, Arizona fixer-upper.  Jerome is a small town built along a mountainside.  Most of the homes are built on stilts and have great views of the valley below.

We’re taking bets to see if this home has a certificate of occupancy.  It’s a fixer-upper.  Check out the roof on the right side.  And why is there a ladder in a horizontal position on the left side?  [click to expand all photos]

Besides the rickety railing and clutter, shouldn’t the photo promote the scenic views?

They built a bench around two support posts.  Granted, the posts are only 2 by 4s so the support is weak.  Old washtub = cowboy bathtub?

Let’s go inside and see what features it has.  Oh, it has a shelf!  I dare you to pick up that jar.

The master suite features a sitting room.

The living room features a furnace.  See the giant crack in the support beam?

When we pan to the right, we see clutter and unfinished walls.  Is this the rustic look buyers crave?

Huntin’ and fishin’ shack.

The view from the other side of the wall.  Thy (fishing) rod and thy staff (infection) comfort me.

The seller plans to install hardwood flooring some day.  Notice the custom-built door with its sloping top.

They don’t take kindly to strangers.  The last trespasser is taking a long nap in the freezer.

The bathroom.  That is not a window; it’s a photo of a farm scene.

A Few Repairs To Be Done

November 26th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Time for a new water heater.  Hey, wait.  Here’s a great idea.  Rusty water heater equals rusty water.  Rusty water stains your skin.  It’s your very own spray tanner!  Brilliant.
