In Addition To

August 14th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Here are two house additions that have (or even haven’t ever) seen better days.

They tried to enclose the patio.

This one probably didn’t have permits.  That box is an enclosure around a water heater.  Looks like an outhouse (the door is missing a crescent moon).

House Addition

June 23rd, 2013 · 1 Comment

El Paso, Texas home.  The fence is made of chicken wire and sticks.

Now we move to the left and we can see they added a 2nd floor to the house.

There’s the house addition.  Seems perfectly fine.  Probably done by a licensed contractor and with city building permits.

Yours For Only $50,500

April 18th, 2013 · 6 Comments

Neglected home.

Owned by the same family since 1993.  But they refinanced for $180,000 in 2005.  Perhaps to remodel the home?

The house went into foreclosure.  The bank sold it recently in this condition for $50,500.

We’re not seeing any renovations so far.

None of the $180,000 was spent in the kitchen.

Or in the bathroom.

The bank disclosed to buyers that repairs are needed to the room addition.  Building permits probably needed too.

The bank also said the house has termites and roof problems.

The investor buyer could spend $50,000 and really fix up the place.  Too bad the previous owners didn’t.

Gazebo Built For Only One

March 3rd, 2013 · No Comments

They’re proud of their do-it-yourself gazebo in Mankato, Minnesota.  Unfortunately, by using only one plywood sheet and a few cinder blocks, only one person can enjoy it at a time.  Otherwise, the floor will collapse.  And watch your step entering and leaving.

Remodel Almost Complete

November 3rd, 2012 · 5 Comments

The description for this house states, “Remodel almost complete.”  Oh, okay.

Then it states, “Owner has started the remodel.”  But it’s almost completed, right?

It also states, “Master bedroom remodel started but not completed.”  That makes sense.

And “owner will leave materials for buyer.”  Thank you.  We were worried.  It also states, “Anticipated cost to complete remodel is $30,000.”  Oops!  Hmmm.  And also, “Exterior stucco will need replaced.”  Oh.  Did he get a building permit for the room addition?

The owner lived in the house during the “remodeling.”  Time for new pillows!

Coats & jackets at the ready by the front door, because it’s very cold in Phoenix during the summer.

Disaster

Rascal the dog says, “Please save me from this messy house!”

Graffiti in the bedroom.  White & yellow stars on the ceiling.  Foil in the window.  Towel used as a curtain.

That chair is disgusting.  The carpet’s not much better.

Foiled again!  Dusty too.

We step back and now we’re in the dining room.

Another bedroom.  Yes, someone lives here.

As if they take showers anyway.  Check out the floor on the right side.  And the boarded up window.

The house is cable ready.

The furnishings are negotiable.

The kitchen is the neatest room of the house.

But you’ll be in a pickle here with no sink.  Maybe Winnie the Pooh can help.

Romantic Spa

April 3rd, 2012 · 11 Comments

Looks like a romantic setting for a hot tub.  No windows.  It also looks like a breeding ground for mildew and mold and bacteria.
