Greenhouse Effect

March 7th, 2017 · 6 Comments

Specially designed bathroom with a domed window. They added bamboo blinds for privacy.

170307a

This design is impractical in Phoenix. The sun is nearly straight overhead in summer. And it’s a hot sun. That bathroom would be like a sauna. Bathroom probably was an addition without a building permit.

170307b

As home owners and flippers try to modernize their homes in Phoenix, many are choosing frosted glass garage doors. Looks nice and modern but totally impractical in Phoenix. This is a photo of a house I sold last year. The garage faced south. The inside of the garage was boiling hot.

Shirtless Joe’s Place

January 18th, 2017 · 8 Comments

Shirtless Joe welcomes you to his Tonopah, Arizona home. Please come inside.

There he is! Shirtless Joe!

Joe likes to cook.

The odor really affects your appetite.

P.E.A.C.E. = Please Extract All Clutter Elements

Joe likes to save everything.

Joe keeps a close eye on all of his possessions.

Is this what you call vehicular manslaughter?

You never know when you might need something. Better to have it available.

Here’s another angle of the pallets.

Let’s ask Joe if that room addition has a building permit.

It looks well-built.

That yard is looking a little tired.

Good luck.

Our reader Michael sent us these photos of a San Diego, California home.

Let’s remove the stuffed animal on the couch, the outdated poster of movie stars at the diner, the bicycles, the fan, the ladder, the vacuum cleaner, the fake logs, the Budweiser sign, the cords, etc.

Time for a new roof.

Likely that a city permit was not issued for this room addition either.

Quality Craftsmanship

The house addition looks just fine.

The other side looks just as good.  No problems with the roof or with earth-to-wood contact.  The termite inspection should go well with no concerns.  Right?

The room addition at this house looks good too.  Think of all that valuable extra square footage.
