Flowers In the Attic

July 9th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Our reader Sarah sent these photos, thank you. Let’s look at some attics. Here’s a fixer-upper attic in Laurel, Delaware.

They say new paint and flooring will freshen up a house. The attic above could use paint and flooring, but perhaps not sloppy paint or bright paint like this Harrington, Delaware attic.

This Dewey Beach, Delaware home features a 6-person attic bedroom. No holes in the ceiling or bright orange paint, but no visible heating or cooling.

Tan Your Hide In Mabelvale

June 4th, 2017 · 3 Comments

One of our readers, thank you, sent photos of a foreclosed home in Mabelvale, Arkansas, located near Little Rock and only one mile away from Bass Pro Shop on I-30. We did a little sleuthing and found photos when it was up for sale before the bank took it back.

They have a tanning bed in their bedroom! Along with a Sturgis (South Dakota) Black Hills Rally flag.

Many items on display in another bedroom including Valentine’s Day balloons.

Booze and more on display around the fireplace.

If we step back and shift to the left, we see the rest of the room.

170604mabelvalear4

The only overhead light in the kitchen needs a cover.

170604mabelvalear5

You have two options leaving the front porch: stairs or slide.

170604mabelvalear6

You can shoot hoops while jumping on the trampoline. And there are two giant TVs on the porch. The riding mower does not convey with the house.

170604mabelvalear7

These are the current photos sent by our reader. No more trampoline or TVs in front. Bummer.

170604mabelvalear8

The slide and the rider mower are gone too.

170604mabelvalear9

The front side of the house.

Painted With Care

Purposeful painting at a Phoenix home.

170302a

Every brush stroke was done for a reason.

From swooshes and smears to polka dots in another bedroom.

They made their mark. About 1000 times.

Grove City Home Part 1 of 3

November 29th, 2015 · 2 Comments

This is our first post in a series of photos from a Grove City, Pennsylvania home, provided to us from an anonymous reader. We’ll look up at the home’s ceilings today.

Peeling paint everywhere.

The same room.

What happened?

No, really.  What happened?

It’s one thing to have a small water leak, but when you let it continue over time it will create major damage.  And it appears that there were leaks all over the house.

This didn’t happen overnight.  It’s years of neglect.
