Roy G Biv Returns

December 20th, 2017 · 1 Comment

It’s harder and harder to find a complete ROYGBIV rainbow set of carpets. Most home sellers are opting for earth tones in carpet colors or opting for tile or wood flooring. We’re stretching the color tints just a bit in order to showcase the full ROYGBIV range.

R for Red

O for Orange

Y for Yellow (orangy-yellow)

G for Green

B for Blue

I for Indigo (it’s as close as we found to dark blue)

V for Violet (well, lilac in this photo; please forgive us)

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.

Carpet Baggers

November 21st, 2017 · 2 Comments

Time to bag this carpet and get new.

Note to sellers: when the carpet is torn, that is your last call to replace the carpet.

If you are going to keep the ugly carpet, at least stretch it and cut the ends.

At least these sellers were considerate enough to keep their infant away from the filthy carpet.

First thing you see when entering this Houston, Texas home is stained, dirty carpet. [Note: this photo has been kept on file since March 2017; it is not post-hurricane]

Camden Fixer-Upper

Free TV on the side of this Camden, New Jersey home. But the kilo will cost you.

The sellers put out the red carpet treatment for buyers.

Gourmet kitchen.

Those built-in drawers are certainly handy.

Green wood paneling will be a hot new trend in 2018.

Tickled pink.

Cedar-lined closet to keep out moths?

Calgon, take me away (from Camden).

Brick House (On the Inside)

September 17th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Our reader Sarah found this Georgetown, Delaware home with a lot of brick on the inside.

“All in all it’s just another (1000) brick(s) in the wall.”

The brick virus spread to the kitchen.

They even bricked the fish tank stand.
