January 2nd, 2018 · No Comments

Please join me in singing the 8th annual UglyHousePhotos version of the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Everybody join in now. A one, and a two, and a three.
On the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Twelve crates for milkin’…

Eleven detergent bottles…

Ten rocks a sittin’…

Nine hats a hangin’…

Eight more hats a hangin’…

Seven cans of Ensure…

Six lawn jockeys…

Five bed pans…

Four milk jugs…

Three stuffed deer…

Two Harley bikes…

And a partridge in a bird cage.

Merry Christmas!!

Dead Animals On Display

November 20th, 2017 · 5 Comments

A bear skin rug to keep you warm.

The seller who dominated over the elk now wants the elk to dominate the room.

Numbskulls displayed the skulls in their home when selling.

Thank goodness! One less bobcat in this world.

It’s right there in your face while you eat.

Or rather, you’re in its face while you eat.

Full House

July 23rd, 2017 · 11 Comments

Thank you to our reader Helen for finding this packed-to-the-gills home in Richmond, Texas. Here we see the sellers posing for the photo while their child hides under the table.


Another view of the missus and her million bed pillows.


Last Chance To Run!! Creepy Halloween masks, cow skulls, a child hanging upside down, and a lot of visual distractions.


We apologize for the nudity, but someone “stole” her clothes.


Too bad buyers can’t fully appreciate the features of this home. This room has nice flooring, a tall vaulted ceiling, and a big window.


Sorry again for the nudity.


Again, too bad it’s hard to appreciate the giant picture window and the nice fireplace.


Here’s another view of this room.


All that clutter would make me want to climb the walls too.


The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.


Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.


Wonderful life. Fun.


He’s counting all of the overhead lights.


It’s Christmas year ’round.


The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.


Shoes are lined up on the stairs.


Beware of pickpockets and loose women.


Be nice or leave. Or the maid will give you the “brush” off.


He’s waiting to join you in the shower.


The back yard of this property reaches a canal. It’s a lovely shade of brown. When it rains, the cow urine & poop drains into the canal.

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.


Beautiful craftsmanship, right next to a Craftsman weed eater.


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.

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.”


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


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


Another view of this bedroom.


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.”


This is embedded into the floor.


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.


Another cluttered bedroom with exposed ceiling.


It has its own kitchen.


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


The shower looks like this.


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


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.


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


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


Cluttered bonus room.


More antlers and clutter.


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!!

Rudolph Conspiracy Theory

December 22nd, 2016 · 3 Comments

Listen, folks. All the stories you’ve heard about poor little Rudolph and the “foggy” Christmas night are fake. Rudolph started out cute and innocent, but his trip to the Island of Misfit Toys is where his true personality was developed. He came back to the North Pole with a determination to be on Santa’s reindeer team at all costs. No one knows about Ralph the Reindeer. He was the lead reindeer for Santa. Rudolph killed Ralph. See the photo below; that’s Ralph!! Santa had no choice but to use Rudolph. They all made up the story about fog and Rudolph’s glowing red nose. The red on Rudolph’s nose was Ralph’s blood! And now you know…the rest of the story.

Baby Bear was killed too, because it’s okay to kill a small animal.

The Elk Has a Great View

March 23rd, 2016 · 1 Comment

So thoughtful of the sellers to place the elk head where it can enjoy the view.  Our hats off to the seller.  Now if they would take the hats off the elk…
