Snake!

May 29th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Imagine visiting this Lyman, South Carolina home and seeing a snake on the bed!!  Would you pee your pants?  Before you realized it was a fake snake?  We hope it’s fake.  On the other hand, why would the seller put a fake snake on the bed?  To scare away what?

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.

Entertainment Niches

May 4th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Entertainment centers, also known as media niches, were popular in the Phoenix area.  Until TVs got wider and not so deep.  The extra storage spaces all but guaranteed they would be filled up.

This unique set-up allows for a television to be placed in front of the niches.

It looks like they cut holes into the drywall to create the niches.
