For that Soviet ski chalet look


Maybe this doesn't belong here, because the photo isn't demonstrating poor taste on the real estate agent's part. I think that this is just what the place looks like. You know, your standard parade viewing stand next to an A-frame sort of place. With someone dancing next to it.

That's what life is like every day in Utah, isn't it?

Found by Alisha.

This is why I refuse to visit my brother and his family in Utah.

Stange people living in 'dem A-frames.

Oh - I get it now. The deck has a view of the scrub - WOW....I want it!

Meg said...

"Exterior: Animals permitted" What?

Yeah, it's weird, but I kind of like it. There. I said it.

That's no viewing platform. If the snow is 10 feet deep, that's the ski lift. If the snow is less than that, then it becomes a ski jump.

I think that is actually a fire-watch tower so they can get the hell out when the forest fire gets too close.

Also, interesting that it lists 0 bedrooms and 1.00 bathrooms with a half bath on the first floor which must mean there is another half bath on the 2nd floor - 2 half baths = no bathing. But maybe that is ok in Utah.

haha... we have a cabin just a few miles from there... and here I thought the weirdos on your site were always someone else's neighbors!

The viewing deck is nicer than the house, I guess that is what will sell this property.

Hmmm. Is the parade stand/ski lift/jump portable?

Vanessa said...

I don't think he/she is dancing...smoking a doobie?

Oooo, she's on her cel phone, calling for HELP.

If you're buying this house, you're also buying a stairway to heaven. Hey-oooooo! Badum-pshh.

so, did anyone notice that under "interior features" the only thing listed is: "Basement(0% Finsihed) None/Crawl Space" ? fun family times.

This blog makes me feel happy, like my slightly irregular 1924 bungalow might someday sell for millions.

Karen said...

Um, one bathroom, zero bedrooms?

No really, what is that decking thingy for? Here in my tribe we do not know such things.

Charlene said...

Of course she's calling for help: the house just slid off its foundations and sank halfway into the ground. All that is left of the second floor is the deck.

I found this site yesterday through a link on the readymade blog. I spent way too much time looking at all the funny posts. I live in Utah and I wonder if the weird deck thing is a Utah thing. I have seen several of them.

Julie said...

Hmmmm, that's where the rescue boat docks when the flash floods come?

You're all wrong. Judging by the bell bottoms, this photo is from c. 1969-1972. Making that a jet pack landing pad.

Sylvia P. said...

Whoops, I meant 1974! This was like a hippies' honeymoon palace.

Z'rrza said...

Oh my goodness! I used to live in Mt. Pleasant, if I'd been back in the last 25 years, I'd probably know who lived there! rofl!

Theresa said...

If she's trying to make a phone call, she'd better climb up that platform. It's the only place you can get cell phone reception up there.
