Are all the cabinet doors open so you know that the lady with the nails doesn't actually live there?

I think it is a dramatic representation of what happens when the floods come!!!

speaking of sinks, did we ever get the answer for those weird sinks you posted a while ago? where the front was all cut out?

Sara said...

There were serious answers, 2BR02B, ones that almost made sense to me, but I never quite understood how the sinks worked. I think I need grant money for a trip to Norway to see them in person.

There's nothing inherently wrong with acrylic nails, but those are so long that it's kind of gross. How does she do anything without getting all manner of unspeakable things stuck up under them? And I suspect she put the bling on just for this photo, too.

Look Ma, indoor plumbing!

Nothing says "luxury" like Lee Press-On nails and a stainless steel sink.

The continuation of the rather special lino and open cupboard theme briefly tricked me into thinking there was a bath in the kitchen.

Stranger things have happened on IL!ITI!

My favorite part of this picture is the fact that the faucet is obviously leaking!

Sigh, I could only dream of having my very own basic sink with running water. Thanks for the reminder of all the things I do not have this morning. I'm going to pretend that it's only cold water that comes with the sink to ease the sting a bit. *SOB*

2BR02B - supposedly the cutout allows for a bucked to be filled in the sink more easily, same thing with deep pots. If you think about the sink in basements in the U.S. they frequently have a much smaller spout area. Problem is, a cutout that deep would seem to make pouring the bucket/pot contents out pretty messy and impractical. This is possibly why the design never caught on internationally. That, and made only Norwegians had the patience to explain the bucket-hoist-fill option to everyone not from Norway.

They must take their bucket ease very seriously there.

On this listing, I guess she's trying to show that unlike a lot of short sales, foreclosures, this still has running water? Or plumbing is considered a luxury item?

I'll give her this, those are some pretty thorough listing photographs. She's the polar opposite of the IN realtor who was taking pictures from her car.

Weirdly that hand looks like it belongs to one of my teachers from Jr. High. We called her Auntie Twinky, it was not a tearm of endearment.

It's a 25k house. She's likely showing off this week's featured item from Home Shopping crap. One bad manicure and two easy payments of $19.99 and you too can lose the Spokesmodel competition as well.

If anyone knows the street address of this listing, let me know. I'd like to mail them a pair of nail clippers and a bottle of Lubriderm. Maybe a wrench, too.

Having lived very near Noblesville IN I can promise you this house has been under water several times in the last two years!! As for the open cabinets...a strange thing you see in foreclosed properties in Indiana. Showing off the running water?? Just plain odd.

What's with all the orange Post-It Notes in the bathroom?

leftyfro said...

There's running water in Indiana?! Sign me up!

It looks to me like there is no screen in the faucet. The screen makes the water come out in a neat stream. Try it the next time you need a small round screen for something.

Brie said...

you never know... running water could be a hot commodity in this area.
