A Roof Over Their Heads

December 19th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Foreclosure home. At least they had somewhere to sleep and a roof over their heads.

Looking at this room from the other direction. The protective grille for the fan is on the floor. Be careful.

One bedroom. With drywall cut up from the ground. That usually implies water damage.

Second bedroom.

Third bedroom.

Fourth bedroom.

Toilet tank lid is missing in the bathroom.

What happened to the chairs? Scratching posts for cats?

The kitchen from the opposite view.

Bonus room with yet another different type of flooring.

May the new owners fill the pool with water and the home with memories.

Japanese Curb Appeal

December 10th, 2017 · 3 Comments

I spent two weeks in Japan in November. Here are some ugly homes across Japan.

New roof needed in Kyoto, Japan.

Neglected entrance in Osaka, Japan.

Not much to look at near Hiroshima, Japan. But it does have stairs going up and a slide going down.

Bonus photo: a home seen in Montreal, Quebec, Canada during my visit there in October.

Clever Fan Idea

December 8th, 2017 · No Comments

Why didn’t I think of that? If you want to ventilate your house affordably, take a floor fan, remove the support base, bend the pole, attach the bottom the pole to the wall, and now you have a fan to send hot air outside! It looks fan-tastic! It also helps eliminate smelly fish tank odors.

Another clever idea: if you remove the back panel on your kitchen cabinetry, you have access to storage on both sides!

They need a clever solution for cleaning that range.

The toilet seat is too short for the elongated bowl. Pink tiles are missing. The shower & tub could use a good cleaning.

Neglected swimming pool.
