The closet, too, is bigger on the inside than the outside.




The Tardis! It's here! In America! And Val found it! But because it's in Seattle, the Tardis now comes in a classic cedar.

if it means that I can rejuvenate and get a whole new body when I'm sick of mine... it's SOLD!

Somewhere, a home inspector is having an aneurysm.

Check out the peeking pet (near the sun emblem on the couch) in photo 3...

Is that a sauna? in the bedroom?

Um, that's a two person portable sauna. My Mister was born in Helsinki and his parents built one in their basement. He sees these for sale at the County Fair every year and tries to talk me into buying one and putting it in the garage. Like I need help to sweat.

Wow! Those photos must be the "before" shots. Seriously, what happened to the "after" pics? You know, the ones you put in a listing when you want to actually sell the house? Come on, people...try!

Dreadful - peeling paint, rubbish all over, messy.

Geeze, they couldn't just stuff the crap into the closet and shut the doors to take the picture?

Though on the bright side, looks like those classic plastic chairs are enjoying their internet connection.

I personally like that big extension cord hanging down. Now that's quality wiring!

I do not get WA. 380K for a 980 sq. ft. shack?
According to my Saturday morning radio homeopath doctor/chiropractor?, saunas are very good for one's health, but where will the current hippie live if it sells?

GeePig said...

and what is that red light hanging down on the right hand side of the Sauna-Tardis, is this, is this a red light area?

Naaarrniaaaaa!

@tritium: the cactus is there on the porch so the home inspector can commit hari kari after looking this shack over. On the upside, the heavy-duty, orange electrical cord connecting the sauna shows that these owners really understand the fire codes. OY.

That's funny -- I just looked at a house in Grass Valley, CA that had one of those two-person saunas parked in the very small living room. The rest of the house was a total disaster -- I should have known there was a reason the listing only had a photo of the outside of the house....

Oh, Seattle.... The room with a dozen old computers, the Starbucks cup on the kitchen counter (Venti, naturally), the abundance of house plants, a house painted yellow, peeling paint from the rain....

Hey, there's a thought, why bother ironing clothes, just hang them in the wardrobe and sauna with the door open, oh yes, my kinda housework.

We needs a TARDIS type house to hold all our books and stuff!

Mmmm, cedar....

Baby4 said...

too funny.. I found your blog through a friends and I find it so amusing that so many of these houses are in Washington State ( I live just outside of seattle) Just shows the people are a little wacked out here lol...

"the Tardis!..."

What am I missing that makes everyone think this is a "shack"? I think it looks like an adorable little house. The stuff in it is not so adorable, but 90% of the issues it has look like they'd be gone as soon as the present occupants moved out, or be fixable in a week.

The price is not so adorable, but I know nothing of Seattle real estate pricing.

I was never a big fan of that Tardis blue anyway... cedar, much more hip!

(Honestly, before I even read your caption, I thought "OH MY! A Tardis!") Good one!
