In our house hunt, we’ve now looked at 50+ homes. Yeah–Five-O. No, I’m not being dramatic. I literally just counted all of our listing sheets, which, considering that we’ve thrown away a lot of them, means that I’m seriously under-estimating how many properties we’ve seen. And while some have been
great decent, others have been down-right crazy. So here’s a compilation of some of the weirder things we’ve seen:
Some type of pen for an animal? This was in the corner of a scary, dark basement . . . any ideas what (or maybe who) was kept in there?!
A monstrously over-sized shower head . . . did Kramer live here?!
Every single house we have been in has had wood paneling in at least one of the rooms. Every. Single. One.
Here’s a basement interrogation room (again, this makes not only my wood paneling point, but it also circles back to the weird items in basements). Isn’t this straight out of a scene in a 70s cop movie or something? Is that a blood stain in the bottom left?!
In case you didn’t catch these in the picture above . . . gotta’ love the Bambi figurines!
Anyone in the mood for a peach? How about an orange?
How about a quick game of shuffleboard? In my basement. On asbestos tile. Near the scary coal fireplace.
And finally, my absolute favorite . . . the closet bathroom! Yep–that’s a closet. With a toilet. A blue toilet. In a closet. A closet with bi-fold doors. And a toilet. And to make it even awesomer, there’s carpet in there. Because who doesn’t love carpet in a bathroom? Sold!
