There’s a Drought In California

October 12th, 2014 · 3 Comments

It’s so dry in California, even the weeds are dead.  But there’s just enough water to keep the flowers alive in front.  The flowers add a welcoming touch for buyers.  [Coarsegold, California]

The bathroom toilet is the same one used on the International Space Station?  The can of ant & roach killer doesn’t instill confidence.

This is the master bedroom upstairs.  At least the drywall was installed.

Bacteria Factory

These sellers were super dirty.  Disgusting floor of a bedroom.  You can see the outline of a dresser and a bed.  Did they ever wash their feet or wipe their shoes?  Is that dog feces?

Is doesn’t look any better from a distance.

Another filthy bedroom.

And a third dirty bedroom.  How many years (decades?) does it take to reach that level?

No surprise that the bathroom is dirty too.

The kitchen’s not so bad.  Although the ceiling and refrigerator door handles could use some cleaning.

That’s really old carpet in the living room.  So if it doesn’t have a pathway of filth, why are the bedrooms so nasty?

The house has roof leak issues too.

Unfortunately, the lot is what’s worthwhile.

The coved ceiling is a plus.  Too bad the owners neglected this home.

How old is that wall heater?

Attic Access

Five homes with holes in the ceilings.  Because?

The ceiling’s so low, perhaps the seller cracked the drywall open with his head.

Or maybe the seller wants to show the insulation to buyers?

This home has no insulation.

There’s no hole, but…
