I didn’t catch it at first and then I did a double take.

Those guys must have had my contractor. Picture #5: quite the setup they’ve got there. And a good lesson why mine needs to get remodeled out of there before I ever think of putting our home on the market. At least mine’s lined up evenly, even if the cabinets hang over the stove on both sides. (I know. Still are. Pandemic.)

Or picture #17 in this one: is that bathroom vanity made from an old library card catalog? With a grab bar added? (This is begging for an “it got carded at the bar” joke.) Or was it something else in a former life? It must be a big chunk of why the listing says they spent $67k on the bathroom remodel.

A greenhouse! And then picture #25 on this one wants to see who’s coming to buy this house and are you bringing us treats? Maybe we can give you some mohair!

(Thinking of a teen who once asked me, Mohair? MO-hair? What kinda animal is a Mo!?)

Since you are perusing the housing market…have you tried Redfin? It’s my fave for house-peeping.

My guess is that it isn’t a card catalog, but a map case, or something similar: meant to hold plans or other flat things. Very cool!

Stove picture. Anybody remember the Regal catalogue? Cards and cheap household type stuff? Embiggen the picture of the stove and you’ll see that they bought the strips that bridge the gap between the stove and the counter that keeps drips and little bits of food from falling down there. The idea is interesting but I’m not sure how practical and not exactly pretty. I’ve always thought cupboards above a stove are not a smart idea – but we probably all have them. They are a little off for sure.

I think the vanity is custom and they have added old style hardware – maybe from Restoration Hardware. Kind of cool but not my thought for a bathroom. Would be very cool in a craft room or office. But that hardware would be a royal pain to keep clean in a bathroom I think.

Love the goats! Wonder if they come with the house?
