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.

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.

This carpet has worn out its welcome.

Not much better in the next bedroom.

At another house…what did they do to ruin the carpet in the middle of the room?  Spit sunflower seeds?

Traffic patterns and worn-out padding at this house.  Hey, this is perfect for words describing apartments:  a flat & a pad.

Where the Wild Fern Dies

November 22nd, 2015 · 3 Comments

Thank you to one of our readers for sending these photos of a Saint Paul, Minnesota home.  It could use some tidying up.

Was it necessary to take a photo so close to the wall?  Try one further back and open the window blinds.  And remove unnecessary items.

Let’s remove the clutter from the side of the shed and take down the laundry.

Next time, take photos before the first hard frost.  Otherwise the beautiful ferns look dead.
