This is where I grilled, and we smoked our cigars.

This is after the first P.O.D.S. took most of our things.

Don't let the wide-angle lens fool you. This couch sits three.

"Formal Dining"

This lens is great! It makes my house look HUGE!

This too, is an optical illusion...

This is where it all happens.

Boy's room. Notice the submarine is gone :(

Video game room

Little girl's room.

Thank you my love - the house looks fantastic! I'm sure it will sell very soon. (I think she's already shown it twice.) Keep your fingers crossed! Thank Steph, the pics look great! Thanks galinda822, for helping my wife keep her sanity during all of this!

Just astounding how much work you all have done! The place looks fantastic. Lady “L” made all the right choices! I am stunned at how good the place looks. I can’t imagine it will take long to sell. I can almost smell an apple pie baking in the oven from here. Good luck!

And thanks to photogoot for helping me move the king-size bed from the basement to the upstairs master bedroom.

It was a small chore compared to moving my bar, which I believe you helped me do at least twice. Thanks right back at you!

When I first read the article, I thought it was for the rental house that you and drax0r had found to reside in temporally. But then I thought, That house looks familiar. What through me for a loop was when you said This is where I grilled, and we smoked our cigars. and I was like "huh?' Then the light bulb went off! Talking about the P.O.D.S. confirmed my suspicion, but when you started talking about the wide angle lens and the couches, I couldn't help but think that they were stitched together in Photoshop.

The formal dining room and the kitchen is a joke. You made the master bedroom spacious, but we didn't need the commentary. The basement looks huge and the children's rooms are cute. At first glance I was thinking This place could sell for $220K but then when I went back to write this comment and give the pictures a critical review I started to see how small the house really is and then though People have to walkthrough before they buy.

Either way, I wish you all the best and hope you make so much money on the sale that you have to hire an armored truck to haul the money to Texas.

Thanks dude. It is tiny, but its tiny for a Texan. Its actually the largest house on the block!

...but we didn't need the commentary.
I thought it was funny.

Thanks - I'm doing my best to help out the wife! We did do a great job on the house didn't we?! I'm especially proud of the job we did outside in front. We should have gotten a picture of me actually using a shovel - hehe!

Pretty house. :-)

My old house was 2300 sq/ft:

This house is a mere 900 sq/ft, and only has one bathroom. Grrrr.

Oh, I like your [old] house! That living room is gorgeous (you're right, the floor IS beautiful). Also: you have a huge back yard! At least, juding by the size of the tree (and it's usual size), you do. I'm sure it will sell quickly.

I'm sorry about the absence of the submarine, though. :( I actually remember reading about that at some point...

I will miss the submarine as well. I had a reservation to sleep in the submarine however the night I arrived a tree fell through the roof directly above it and I was denied my stay under the waves!

I hope ehowton keeps his eyes open for signs of periscopes in Texas. Maybe Lady "L" can make another one surface there too!

Icredible, the irony life pushes at us. Or, perhaps, it's simply bad luck. I'm sorry that your stay in the submarine was cancelled, but if you look on the bright side, at least the branch fell before your stay rather than during.

I'm sure there's no shortage of periscopes in Texas, it being a waterland and all.
