    It is a Shame. I am wondering why you don’t see any insulation in those walls?

    What are those things hanging in the before kitchen? Antique bed warmers was my first thought. The room with the green drywall wrecked showing how thin they used to make the space between the block and the drywall is so
    classic midcentury phoenix.

    Why do certain people even bother to buy a house if they’re just going to destroy it?

    Gosh, if that isn’t “pride of ownership,”
    I don’t know what is.

    I thought the hanging things were fireplace popcorn poppers, but I didn’t see a fireplace.

    The gutted 2013 kitchen shows how much of a splash and run flip the 2008 house was.

    The flippers didn’t even run the tile from behind the range-top to all the way behind the refrigerator or even paint tan behind the refrigerator leaving the wall the original blue.
