Urban Exploration

I picked up this rad 1961 Globe from a thrift Saturday for $5 with my friend Allison who was visiting from LA. The house below is the lil house I was talking about that my friend said I can live in for dirt cheap.

I want this cart. I have a plan to turn it into a rad rolling couch. It just weighs 200lbs. Damn, I miss my truck.

This is what it looks like when you open the front door.The house was totally ransacked, dark-due to the fact that it's boarded up and super, super, super dusty/dirty. I prob got cancer from breathing in all that crap. I love old houses so much. I didn't get too artsy with the pics bcuz I could hardly see due to my crappy headlamp and so I just pointed and shot with the flash. I can't wait to get my ghost hunting camera film developed-I managed to get two at Big Lots ($4) WOO HOO!!

This is the bar area-tiny..

sorry about the cooked pic-this is going up the front stairs.

there was amazing woodwork upstairs

The backstairs. There ya go-nothing TOO exciting but still awesome. I can't believe somebody ransacked it like that tho. Losers.





Chi Chi going apeshit on my funny pig costume I picked up at the thriftstore Saturday morning.

isn't it bad ass? I would love to have an old victorian with some history. The curved wall and ceiling was made of all these thin strips of wood-so cool. Wish I could have gotten better pics.

that house is way cool...i have to agree. it will cost lots to renovate.... but you can clean it up for now and work room by room. you know, maybe by the time you fully renovated it, the market will be good and you could sell it. ugh...always the business woman in me.....
