Thank you, C.H., for sending us these photos of an Omaha, Nebraska home.  It needs a little help.  Maybe a new roof, a new ceiling, and a new wall?

Milk crate bookshelf.  Did you have that in your dorm room or apartment as a young adult?  Cinder blocks were used a lot in Arizona.

You can almost taste the lead-based paint by looking at it.

What in the world?!!?!?  This seller extended their air conditioning vent further into the bedroom.  Doesn’t it look great?

Spot On

April 16th, 2015 · 2 Comments

There’s a new trend in flooring:  natural plank wood floors.  Plywood is the most popular choice of flooring material.   Things got lost in translation, however.  The sellers heard that buyers are looking for bathrooms resembling hotels & resorts with spa treatments; they thought it was “spot” treatment.  All this bathroom needs now are knotted curtains.

It might just need a new roof.  Some day.

Don’t worry about this roof.  It rarely rains in Phoenix.

No problem here.  You see, the tarp protects the roof and adds more years to it.  Shields it from the sun.

Those curls on the shingles?  That’s fun and whimsical.  Who wants a boring flat roof?
