Huh?



This is here purely for the "huh?"ness of it. It appears to be a counter with a stovetop and sink -- okay, I've got that -- but then is there another counter coming straight out of the stovetop?

I like the statement about it being converted ILLEGALLY into two units. Precious.

is the window sticking its toungue out at us or with us?

The colors inside are, uhm, interesting too. I would puke if I had that tile around my bathtub...yuck.

OOhh, custom cabinetry! Wish I lived in CA. ohj

...their illegal conversion divided the kitchen into two parts - necessitating tile over a window... was the extra space a porch before?

and that "tile" around the bathtub - looks suspiciously like a linoleum pattern that I was happy to rip out of my house YEARS ago!

I didn't even notice the weird counter thing at first. It tricked my eyes like one of those Escher optical illusions. Trippy.

i guess, someone doesn't like someone's cooking. this is the best they could think of to prevent such heresy.

The Pink-House-People moved up to Greens after testing it in their kitchen...

California must be home to people who have the desire to be a handyman but they don't know what to do with their hands...

Maybe this person liked the look of Fiesta ware.

So do you remember in Indiana Jones 3 how that walkway was invisible from above so you had the leap of faith to walk out onto it?

I bet this counter is the same thing.

At least you don't have to wonder if your husband is going to put the toilet seat down.

old house junkie, trust me - you don't want to live in this part of CA. My grandparents lived about a mile and a half away from this house, and the neighborhoods are politely called "transitional" as in, transitioning to over run with gangs.

I'm freaked out by the ectoplasmic manifestation in the aqua room.

I know I'm probably just posting the obvious, but it took me a good 7 minutes of staring to figure out what was going on... So I'll say the non-funny truth in case anyone else is as dense as I am.

The counter in front is a taller "bar height" counter that they're shooting across to take a picture of the kitchen.

Oh Brandie... you spoiled the whole Indiana Jones concept....

Uh... it's a backsplash.

You know. For oil and stuff. When it splashes. So it doesn't spatter the wall.

It's not a very FITTING backsplash, but a backsplash none the less.

Andrew: I mean the thing in front of the stove, not the backsplash.
