Home In San Diego, Literally

August 30th, 2015 · No Comments

Home!  It has a sign that reads “Home.”  We weren’t sure.  Now we know.  The bigger question is: What’s that dirty rag doing on the floor?  [Thank you, Michael, for sending us these photos of a San Diego, California home].

Of all the cookbooks to fake stage in a kitchen, they pick “Dump Cakes”??!?!  There’s another view of the dirty rag.

Really nice home.  Really nice.  Too bad the kid is in the photo.  If you’ve been looking at several homes in one day, how do you remember each home?  “Oh, yeah, that’s the house with the Dump Cakes and the kid.”

Bathroom Design

August 17th, 2015 · No Comments

A lot of time is spent in a bathroom, so you want the design and layout to be functional and practical.

There was a time in the 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s when sunken bathtubs were common.  Roman tubs (sunken tubs with vertical walls) are found in a post we did in 2013.  This bathroom features a sunken tub.  Be careful not to stub your toe or gash your foot on the sharp edge of the tub’s border.  Don’t fall in, either!  Remember, you’ll have to bend down or get on your knees to turn on the faucets!  And how fun will it be to clean it?

Fran sent us this photo of a home in Tualatin, Oregon.  The owner thought it would be great to have a sink by itself, especially a pedestal sink where there’s no room for toiletries.  And check out the toilet room.  Unless the door is closed, you get a good view of the toilet from your bed.  Thanks, Fran.
