The hook is for the rope bridge through the tiny door


"I said I wanted crown molding on the ceiling, Leroy! Crown molding, not... Oh, never mind, I'll get used to it."

Daliy Lurker to make me laugh first time commenter, but had to let you know (if you weren't already aware), but Lovely Listing is in Money magazine this month on page 66 under Best Way Not to Sell Your House

I didn't know! Thanks, Lesley.

That's the ceiling? Thanks for clearing that up, I had no idea what I was looking at. It's like some optical illusion. A very dirty optical illusion.

Spontaneous Human Combustion is not a laughing matter and I'll thank you to not make light of these horrible mysterious tragedies that occurred in this house.

I believe this moldy Rorschach Test is a testiment to how much the sellers have enjoyed "green" decorating by bringing the outdoors indoors ("oh look, I see a bunny in the clouds!").

You can see them carrying this fun theme in the photo of the woodstove/stairs. That hideous sculpture hanging from the ceiling...clearly their collection of gazing balls/picket fence slats from the garden.

Perhaps the trap door is where the lawn gnomes reside..

Most disturbing is the picture of the attic floor, in what the prior owners probably referred to as "The Killin' Room".


We'll need some bleach, some Kilz primer, a priest ...

A fairly decent house that could have avoided that revolting picture if the owners had just slapped a can of paint on the mold. My bathroom ceiling was covered in black, brown, and green mold when I bought it and it only took me an afternoon to clean it up.

I think the hook is there for hanging yourself, which you'll want to do after 48 hours in this place. (OK, Scott says it looks okay otherwise. I haven't looked. I can't bear to go beyond this photo.)
