    hate it. horrible paint colors on the walls and the room in the last picture is so cramped it's making me claustrophobic. i hate colourful, technicolor walls and i particularly hate them in small spaces, they just make them look smaller.
    i also hate how the yellow exterior looks with the orange brick under it.
    i'd redo it entirely, paint the walls white to open up the spaces and burn all the furniture.

    I hate orange and dark yellow walls.. reminds me of a place we rented and I hated it. It was really dark and dreary.

    I quite like it, but only for a holiday home.

    Let's say it has potential, but these people got it all wrong. I think they may be color blind. Starting with the outside. So many,many colors to choose and they chose yellow? Or rather, in this case yeller.

    Yikes. I hate it all except for the pretty wood floors. What a crazy mess. Toilet paper on the tank and a dead lawn. It doesn't look like they're trying very hard to sell this place.

    Well this was a disappointment, this could be such a cute Adirondack type home and it's just one big mess.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    lol that seems totally normal to me.
    my washer's in the kitchen too. no laundry room. and in europe, washers are always either in the kitchen or the bathroom. if you live in a house with a basement you might have it down there but very few houses have actual laundry rooms, unless they're new.

    lol i guess i never really thought about it before because it's always seemed normal to me. plus, keep in mind the machines in question are smaller, front-loading ones. my washer fits under the counter, next to the sink. i'd say a dish washer gets warmer and more humid.
