Houston Honey

May 14th, 2017 · 3 Comments

The water in the dishwasher is as golden brown as honey. Sweet.

Perhaps they could use the bleach to clean the dishwasher.

170514houstontx2

Is that a lawn mower or a generator? Either one, please don’t run them inside the house.

170514houstontx3

The toilet seat’s too long for the bowl. Hope they don’t overshoot.

170514houstontx4

The front of the house looks nice.

170514houstontx5

Until you realize they used pallets as pavers. Very dangerous to walk on. Hope you don’t wear high heels or have weak ankles.

Special Entertainment

May 12th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Five more entertainment centers/media niches for you to enjoy.
This one was built for the tallest TV ever.

170512a

Beautiful craftsmanship, right next to a Craftsman weed eater.

170512b

These white-wash entertainment centers were very popular in the 1990s. Today, they cannot accommodate wider TVs.

A lot of time was spent building this media niche. How much time and money will need to be spent to remove it?

By the time you add a couch, the room is filled up.

The Kids Don’t Belong In the Pictures

May 11th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Children or adults or pets should not be in real estate promotional photos.

170511a

Please ask them to leave the room when taking photos.

170511b

The focus should be on the house, not the child.

2nd photo too many.
