There are many perfectly good reasons for putting Saran Wrap over the top third of your fireplace before taking its photo for a listing, as Rebecca found. For example:ahumhey, I hear my mom calling, gotta go
I think it's actually aluminun foil -- but regardless, clearly Bob Villa doesn't live on their block . . .
Clearly the shot wasn't thought out at all or someone would have slid a stool or table out of the way (or the pile of junk on the rug) so it didn't look so crowded and small. Or closed the closet door.Also, that is a weird looking glare on that painting. It looks like someone framed a poster with a crease.
Also, check out the horse toy in the 6th pic.Sweet!
It's obviously to keep the floo powder out of the living room. Some witches are very tidy, you know.
It's covering up the trap that will capture Santa Claus and put an end to his reign of terror.
The house must be occupied by an engineer to figure out that they wanted the heat protection of the foil for the hearth, and the translucent quality of the celophane as they demonstrate for the world that their fireplace doesn't draw properly! I wonder if they have to declare that on the seller's disclosure now that it is plainly visible there is a problem?
It's probably rolled down when the fireplace isn't in use to stop drafts. Many older chimneys didn't have built-in dampers because heat was cheap or people stuffed them up with newspapers during the winter.I've been meaning to install a roof-top damper on mine but I just don't use the fireplace that often.
It's an old handyman solution to a fireplace that doesn't draw properly due to too large of an open face. It is a giant red flag for anyone who might actually want burn wood in the fireplace.
Front of house: Wedgwood Blue Jasper or wot.
wouldn't the saran wrap melt?
Dexter is slacking in his cleaning up?
Did anyone else notice the giant pencil and paintbrush in the photo of the bookcase?
