We have been house hunting, trying to find a house that is comparable to what we have not… which is hard. The market here is still high as a kite and so we have to pay about 20K more for the same type house, less than a year later. How ya like that? No likey.
So on our quest we find some funny and interesting things. To say the least. We are going to try and take some picks of some of those things… the things that make us grin at least. 🙂
When looking at this house the other day, the light switch covers looked like this…
Sorry the pics are a lil blurry because they were taken on my cell phone, but you get the idea. I know it is just light switch plates, but this kinda wrapped the house up. Perhaps this house wasn’t for us eh? 😉
Of course, sometimes funky, shabby, or kinda frumpy houses are available for much less. It’s always amazing just how far a fresh coat of paint and some new knobs can go to making something run-down look almost new. Maybe the best thing about a fixer-upper is that the net result is all yours – suited to your needs & likes and not like anyone else’s home.
@Rob O. – for sure, there are a lot of those out there. Our main thing is we want a nice neighborhood more than anything – which you have to pay for. Luckily I’m handy, so fixing things isn’t a big deal.
Around here, antlers are the height of fashion. They’re everywhere hip. For real.
@Megan – THEN DO WE HAVE THE PERFECT HOUSE FOR YOU! haha
Wow. Those are some awesome moose. My folks bought a house that had two-inch shag carpet and golden lions affixed to every vertical surface. Now it’s beautiful. There is hope! Well, maybe not for the moose. That’s just messed up.
@Kendra – indeed. Moose, Deer, Elk – whatever… regardless, it kinda sums up the house as a whole. There is hope, but not hope for us in that house. haha Thanks for stopping by!
what’s worse is that i know exactly what house that is. Horrid, eh? hehe
@tim – I liked the huge shop thingy in the back though, but the house itself was over priced and you couldn’t put more tile in that joint. haha Also, never seen such uneven floors throughout a house in my life. Looked like the crooked house at Six Flags.
