Driveway Avoidance

January 9th, 2017 · 4 Comments

These five home sellers will do anything to keep their cars off the driveways.

170109c

Really? You had to park your car in the middle of the yard?

170109d

The truck blocks the view of the house.

170109a

C’mon, move your car off the lawn.

170109b

He only wanted to park in the shade.

Calgary Stampede

January 8th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Thanks to our reader Helen for sending us these photos of a Calgary, Alberta, Canada home. Helen is nervous about the antlers falling down on someone while they sleep.

Perhaps this is the mother-in-law’s room? Sweet dreams, “Mom.”

170108calgaryab02

In this cowboy-inspired home, we’ll see several bedrooms and bathrooms. Here’s a cluttered bedroom/bathroom combo.

170108calgaryab03

Over the bathtub, it reads “Save a horse, ride a cowboy.”

170108calgaryab04

Another view of this bedroom.

170108calgaryab05

Another cluttered bathroom. With exposed vanity storage. A heated towel rack with towels missing. An exposed incandescent light bulb directly over the bathtub. And a thick wood frame over the sinks with no mirror. The frame reads “howdy.”

170108calgaryab06

This is embedded into the floor.

170108calgaryab07

This bathroom has two showers. So when the cowboys come home from a hard day of roping cattle, they can take showers at the same time and reach around for warm towels.

170108calgaryab08

Another cluttered bedroom with exposed ceiling.

170108calgaryab09

It has its own kitchen.

170108calgaryab10

Here’s another bathroom. A dustpan is available near the toilet.

170108calgaryab11

The shower looks like this.

170108calgaryab12

The bathroom is also the laundry room. The mirror is there so the cowboy can admire his hat while he pees.

170108calgaryab13

Here’s the main kitchen with a million bottles on the shelves. Looks like they spent big money to add Venetian plaster to the ceiling.

170108calgaryab14

What are all of those bottles? And why are the kitchen cabinet drawers and doors missing?

170108calgaryab15

Yes, that’s John Wayne on the back of the chair.

170108calgaryab16

Cluttered bonus room.

170108calgaryab17

More antlers and clutter.

170108calgaryab18

And we finish with another bathroom. Sure to upset 50% of buyers and please 50% of buyers, the toilet seat lid is completely removed. Yee haw!!

Squatter’s Rights

January 4th, 2017 · 9 Comments

Of all the art available out there, these sellers chose a statue of a woman who is squatting. And then placed it next to the kitchen.

170104a

Who am I to judge about art? I don’t know squat.

170104b

Bless her heart. She has to squat because the sellers refused to let her use the bathroom.

Knot a Good Way To Start the New Year

January 3rd, 2017 · 2 Comments

This is knot how you should treat window curtains in 2017.

170103a

We hope this stupid trend finally stops in 2017.

170103d

Not even fancy lace curtains make it look any better.

170103b

Please stop abusing innocent drapery material.
