The Things People Do!

People do some very odd things to their houses. This week alone I've looked at over 20 houses, and we are going out again today. In total over the last few weeks, we have looked at A LOT of houses and some of them you walk in and just think you would love to meet the person who designed the house or decorated it. In one house, every wall (including the ceilings) was a different color. I don't think the same paint color was ever repeated in the house. Needless to say, it was bright. In another, they painted the driveway a very bright reddish-orange to match the color of the shingles on the roof. I would love to meet the type of person who wakes up one morning and decides to paint the driveway. It was special. But this one definitely takes the cake. When I was looking at houses online, I saw this photo, and thought it was so odd that they enclosed the pool. Everything else about the house seemed great, so the backyard having a pool building seemed like something I could live with to get an incredible looking kitchen, updated bath, big lot, etc.

So this afternoon Susan put this house on our list. We walk in the front door and........

this is the view from the front door! You have got to be kidding me. The house has a pool instead of a living room!
Everything else is off of the pool room - above is the view from the kitchen which also features the pool! I could have taken similar photos from all three photos. This house was designed with a pool as the center. Oh My.
Needless to say, that house didn't make the short list of ones I will take Casey to look at. Sadly, the short list is currently very short, but I know that God has a plan for us and eventually we will find the house where we belong! So tomorrow Susan and I will go forth and look again.
