Not seeing a good thread for this anywhere else, I'd like to start a thread about houses that make you .

This isn't necessarily for 'bad' houses like groverhaus, but feel free to include that kind of thing.


Let's start with this one in Chicago:

If my house is destroyed by an earthquake or fire, the wreckage will be considered a toxic waste site, due to the materials I have collected.

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

That's not built into a stone face, right? It looks like a facade but why the gently caress would you do that


Ngl aside from the obvious ran-out-of-money unfinished walls and ceilings I kinda dig the late-80s midtown community center aspect of this building

In relating the circumstances which have led to my confinement within this refuge for the demented, I am aware that my present position will create a natural doubt of the authenticity of my narrative.

I was looking at a listing recently that featured a hospital bed in the master bedroom. It left me with the impression that the previous owner had recently died in there and the estate couldn't be bothered to clean up.

I used to drive past that house every day on my way to work. When they put in the local spur of the commuter rail line, they closed one end of the road I used to take, to prevent idiots from stopping on the tracks (Something that happened a lot when it was just an occasional freight line.) Interesting choice, architecturally, but understandable, considering the number of big loving rocks on those hills.

Dammit, there was a 'terrible real estate photos' site with something similar to this where a huge tree was growing through a house but they'd done a MUCH shittier and cheaper job of building around it but I can't find the photos

earthquakes in my area are both rare and mild, but this is my pottery workshop. I keep the really poisonous stuff in the kiln shed, and while I hope none of it ever catches on fire, I also don't want to be downwind if it does

Right now, there's a pair of water pipes that go from one end of the house to the other. They're maybe 35 feet long. The main comes into the basement, like a normal house, and the water lines go to the upstairs kitchen. The problem is that one of the pipes is not properly supported so it moves when the dishwasher runs and the two pipes bang together. I do not want to cut the ceiling open in the finished basement to get the pipes properly supported, but I'm gonna have to do it anyway before something really breaks...

To be honest, I should probably run PEX anyway since I don't know how old the copper is, but you know, effort.


The previous owners fuckin' loved three-way switches, but apparently got tired of the three-way switch in the bedroom so the switch by the door is upside down. I think the traveler and neutral are just swapped, but I need to look closer.

One of the gutters on the house I rent had fallen apart so that it simply dumped water onto the porch for years until I had to repeatedly text the landlords to come out and take care of it instead of just letting it pour water into the foundation

The previous owner ran power out to the shed in the back yard along with putting an outlet at the base of a nearby tree. Thatís cool and all but the switch to turn on said power is way up on an overhead floor joist in the basement and weíre also pretty sure he did this unpermitted do we have no loving idea where the lines are buried in the backyard.
