Five homes with holes in the ceilings.  Because?

They solved the problem of not enough closet space.  Just add lattice to the wall and now you can hang hangers from it.  The gargoyle nods his head in approval.

Maybe these Glendale, Arizona sellers have the right idea.  Why hide your toiletries and cleaning supplies in a cabinet or medicine cabinet?

There’s no bending over or searching for items.  Very handy & convenient this way.  Great idea!
