I'll just get the kettle...



Well, sure, this garage is kind of a mess. But messy garages aren't that uncommon, so... Wait.

It's not the garage.

It's the kitchen.

Um... anyway, can I fix you a sandwich?

I'm afraid to ask what he died of.

It's been a little slow at work recently. Thanks for helping pass the time!

T said...

Do I want to know what that is hanging from the ceiling?

David said...

I think it is decidedly unfair to call this a fixer-upper.

Clearly, the owner was a meticulous house keeper with a place for everything and everything in its place...and I do mean everything.

The owner was obviously a staunch environmentalist who abhorred sending anything to a landfill – preferring to recycle architectural components as well as the mundane cans and bottles.

I wonder if it has been in this condition since the last major earthquake in SF.

Sara said...

No, T, I really don't think you do.

Are all these repos?

Do you date?

Playin' Hookie said...

Looks like a meth lab!

Sara said...

r2K: no.

Sara said...

anonymous: some of them are bank-owned, which means they were foreclosed.

The San Francisco real estate market is officially INSANE!!! $429,000 and you must enter at your own risk.

I still have no idea what the outside of this house looks like...is it that slanty building?

Jayne said...

I have a horrible feeling the "decedent" is still in there somewhere. I was going to take a guess at location but frankly could be anywhere!

Linnea said...

oh LOL: "enter at your own risk"

no kidding!

Mary from Nebraska said...

Sweet fancy St. Joseph, that is NASTY!

Maki said...

ummm it's pretty scary looking. it's more like a meth house in the movies. oh boy....

Ruth said...

I always assume that realtors are trying to hide something about the property. If a realtor writes "Enter at your own risk," and shows pictures like that, what could they possibly be hiding?

Lili said...

What I can't believe is that you posted the best photo of the batch!

Tii said...

don't act like your kitchen never looked like that... :P haha
(but of course they should've cleaned it before taking that picture)

Brian H said...

Rustic charm.

"Enter at your own risk. " it says on the listing. What a steal at $429,000! Seriously, how does ANYONE afford living in San Francisco?? SF is a wonderful place, but this is nuts. How could anyone afford this and fix it up to live in unless they made several million per year?

Ally said...

Jayne - isn't that the decedent in the tub?

Anonymous said...

That's not a fixer-upper, it's a tearer-downer!

Colleen said...

What's hanging from the ceiling? I think those are stockings that are drying. However, that would imply that someone actually washed something in that kitchen. So, yeah, I got nothin.

Cheryl said...

how frightening that this seems to be the least offensive photo of the bunch! YIKES!

Vanessa said...

Yes please, PBJ. Only don't make it over near the buckets, I think the ceiling is leaking and I HATE soggy bread!

Dad!

I can only imagine the smell. Hold me!

So this is where E.Coli lives. Wonder if Samonella is a room mate?

ipa said...

Ohhhhh - how sad! I'll bet there are some dead cats in there - and dead dogs - and.........

bikerchick said...

So do all the lucky lookie loos get a tetanus shot before they enter? That seems like a reasonable perk to offer at the "open house," no?

Loquacity said...

What immediately struck me was the presence of three receptacles, at least one complete with bin liner and all three completely empty ...

Someone important said...

enter at your own risk? i'm terrified0.o

FoxyMoron said...

I would've died too, just to avoid having to clean it up!

Rebecca, Daniel and Alice said...

Wait - what exactally ARE they selling?? Are we suure its a house??

IrreverendAmy said...

can I fix you a sandwich?

*looks around for clear surface*

May you? Certainly. Can you? I doubt it.

What no one complaining about the price has pointed out is that this house is 460 square feet. 3 rooms. Which means that in each pile of scrap must be something worth about $150,000. Maybe this is the wheelhouse of that uranium mine I always thought was in Visitacion Valley. Wow, we're all going to be rich!

Charlene said...

I had no idea my uncle owned a house in San Francisco.

Heather said...

Well,hey you get to keep all that stuff, plus all the stuff in the ... living room (?) all for only what a mere $429k.

Doris said...

OMG....YOU MUST BE KIDDING !!!!!!! I would offer them $ 10.00

jen shikami said...

"conservatorship sale" -- does that mean we have to preserve it as-is? o_o

I think if I had to buy this house, I would end up living in a hot air balloon tethered safely above the property.

JO said...

OMG! that is soooo gross!!! how could one live in a home like that???

Theresa said...

Most junk yards are outside, but these people are no-conformists and keep theirs inside where it's safe and dry.
