Outdoor Toilet

May 15th, 2016 · No Comments

There’s nothing better than having a cool breeze on your back while using the toilet.  Everyone should install a toilet outside!  Place your toilet paper in the garbage bin.  Do you like the roof of this Houston, Texas home?  How about the gentle slope of the house?  Look how it’s higher on the left side.

Crack(ed) House

May 11th, 2016 · 2 Comments

There’s a big crack at the corner of the house.  And another one under the window.  Might want a structural engineer to check it out before buying.

Sleeping Porch

April 18th, 2016 · No Comments

Back in the day, before air conditioning, Arizonans survived the summer heat by sleeping outdoors on sleeping porches.  Sometimes they placed wet sheets in open windows or on porches to create cooler air.  Sometimes, as we see at this Wickenburg, Arizona home, they crack holes in the window panes to let air to flow in.

These Portland, Oregon house photos were sent by a reader.  Thank you.  The basement wet bar/pot den could use some help with the ceiling.

Half of the ceiling is exposed.  Careful you don’t get insulation in your drink.

Fence Fails

Very clever sellers.  If you break the fence trying to visit their house, you must buy the house.
