I found you a housegawp. It's a good 'un. Starts slow, but builds to a crescendo.

Key questions: Why is there a clock in the middle of that internal window made out of an old cart wheel?
Are you *sure* the bathroom carpet never gets soggy? Really sure?
Aren't sunken baths usually bigger than standard size?
Have the garden chairs and garden table had a falling-out?

Oh, that's a doozy. I was already slightly surprised by the colour of the suite and then laughed out loud at the cartwheel.

I f'n love the bathroom. That's just... that's amazing.

all. CURTAINS augh augh aguh ahgu

1/23. How tiny is the "conservatory"/glasshouse?? The tomato plants are checking the sale ads already.

4/23. The furniture is closing in on the bed. Every night it's a cm closer. They are coming.

6/23. The TVs are also coming for you, but they are pausing to reproduce and raise their young.

8/23. Holy cow! I was expecting Ye Olde Hubcap Clocke, and yet it still surprised me. Is it a window, or just reflective (reflectional? reflectioning?) Ahh, the descriptions says "a feature cartwheel to the side wall which has glazing between the spokes allowing for light transfer between the hall and the kitchen." And then a clock happened.

10/23. Wait, is that the same conservatory/glasshouse in pic 1? V. tardis. And another poorly placed clock.

11/23. Ah, different con/GH. And a cute dog! Is that a wildflower meadow sort of ground cover, or just a weedy, unmowed lawn?

12/23. OMG #3 Con/GH. This is beyond tomatoes.

13/23. An unmade bed. Interesting.

14/23. Oh yeah, here we go. A coy corner of the loo, an empty frame, unfinished walls, a cryo-freezing chamber on a platform, and a huge heater thingo. (The lighting makes the bath look like it has a lid, I swear.)

15/23. No, we're normal! Come out of the murder room and into the lovely sunny garden!

16/23. We have gravel.
17/23. Lots of gravel.
18/23. Gravel, gravel, gravel.
21/23. More gravel! But with contrast paving.

23/23. The table is in the naughty spot, over a patch of gravel which is also being given a time-out from the rest of the gravel.

You need to write a book for British people "How To Curtain, Cos You Lot Need Telling."

That really is astounding. I'm also impressed by the aqua leather sofa set. Very impressed.

Why are you looking at houses in Lindal-in-Furness???

Also, the *turquoise* armchairs.

I look at the local housing market about once a week, in large part for housegawp purposes.
