Thank you, Matt, for sending us this tidy Minocqua, Wisconsin home. Pour yourself a drink and we’ll make a toast. There’s plenty of booze and glasses. The flyswatter’s a nice touch.
As we venture down this room, we see rope lights on the left and on the right.
What’s that figure in the far right (above photo)? Let’s zoom in and take a look. It’s a mannequin!
More rope lights.
Looking back the other direction, we can see the mannequin and more seating. Is that wood sculpture a dog attacking a goat?
A room addition off of the house addition. That’s Rick from Pawn Stars on TV, covering his face in embarrassment.
Is that a real dog sticking its head out the doggie door or is it a fake dog head to scare away burglars?
And more rope lights in another room.
Rope lights and more clutter in another room.
Same room, lower angle. The chairs don’t match.
The owner, standing on the right, will include the rope lights with a full price offer.

The seller had spent years collecting this and that and spent endless hours carefully placing each item in the perfect spot. She wasn’t about to pack any of it for some picky buyer. No way.
This is her home!
No one is going to tell her what to do.
You’d expect her to live in a house that was stripped of her collectibles? The nerve!
Buyers will just have to see past the clutter.
Will buyers notice the nice floor?
Buyers are instructed not to touch any of the items.
She could hire a professional home organizer. Or a friend or neighbor kid.

The photo sure looks nice.
Same position, same house, same yard, same shadows, but different sky & clouds. Photoshopped!

Once the sellers install the new Milgard windows, they’ll call their home remodeled and raise the list price!
Looks like they’re getting ready to install a skylight!
They plan to convert the living room into an expanded bathroom with staircase to the 2nd floor. It’s a work in progress. Please ignore the dust.

There’s still time to enjoy swimming this summer.
Cool refreshing pool water. Aaaaah.
Swimming in junk and debris.
Buyers aren’t expecting crystal clear water, right?
This pool needs new plaster.

What creatures live under there? I’ll pay you $1 to take a look.

Two days’ ago we shared photos of a back yard cantina. We found another one! In Apache Junction, Arizona. This one has a full-sized refrigerator (to hold lots of beers). And a ramada festooned with palm fronds! Party on!

Plastic bag collector in Mesa, Arizona. Sponsored by Walgreens.
More plastic bags in the laundry room.
A few more plastic bags in the living room.
Bug zapper. Two extra refrigerators. American flag on the floor. Christmas tree.
The dining room. Kinda ironic that this messy house has lots of plastic bags to throw things in and an Oreck vacuum to suck up the dirt.
The cleanest room in the house.
More plastic bags in a closet. The shoe rack is a selling feature.
Hallelujah! The curtain’s not knotted.
This is the gift wrapping room. There’s no time like the present.
