We're so pretty, oh so pretty



Found by Kat, who says "Because everyone, deep down, wants a ceilingless kitchen." Me, I think someone just couldn't stand the dropped ceiling ONE MORE DAY ARGH GET RID OF IT! There. Isn't that better?

She also points out that it is "VACANT CATEGORY 2," an intriguing description. Can houses be really vacant, kind of vacant, pretty vacant?

$39,000? At least they're not asking a quarter of a million dollars like some of the other shacks that you've featured. Dare I say, I think if someone had the time/$ this listing *could* be a gem.

I think maybe Vacant Category 2 only applies to Human Occupants... something otherworldly appears to have visited... right through the ceiling

Does anyone know where I can get those orange vinyl countertops? I LOVE THEM!They would go perfect with my tan carpet squares in my kitchen.

But maybe you could get salvage rights on the house!

This house obviously comes with a black hole in the kitchen floor that is pulling the ceiling and the wallpaper down into it. Maybe this is what happened to the previous tenants?

she don't want a bi-level that looks like that

Vacant by humans. The mice and cockroaches that have taken up residence in the kitchen have probably led to the "Category 2" vacancy. :-)

We have a mini daschund that ripped all the wall paper off the bottom half of our kitchen walls. I wonder what breed of dog you'd need to rip down a dropped ceiling?

This blog is hilarious. PLEASE keep posting such gems!

In my humble opinion, being vacant is kind of like being pregnant.

"We've got no reason,
It's all too much,
You'll always find us...
Out to lunch!
Oh, we're so pretty,
Oh so pretty...Vacant!
And now....we don't care!"

How in the world is that fancy light still hanging on to the ceiling!?!

There might be different categories of vacancy depending on why the property is vacant (abandoned by owner, not currently rented, condemned).

Aw c'mon--"Why do ya think they call it a _dropped_ ceiling?"

This is my favorite line:
"BROKEN PIPE 2ND FLOOR, BUT NOT ALL OF THEM"
Oh, good. Not ALL of the pipes are broken.

Hi Guys, I am new to this Blog site.

actually, category 2 vacant in st paul just means it has to be inspected/repaired before it's occupied....though i'd certainly hope that people would want to have someone check it out, if only to make sure the floor won't fall in, too
