Museum of Unnatural History: Part 4

Keeping these creepy rotted doghouses and the rusted chains inside them was pivotal for our end of the sale. They're like condemned mental hospitals haunted by the souls of all the patients that were tortured and abandoned within it’s evil confines. But like a good version of that with dogs and it's not state-funded and it's way smaller and there's no nurses.

just a note of commiseration. I did the exact thing to a 1200 sf rambler in Maryland two years ago. Stripped the whole roof and cantilevered it a foot fron and back (because the house was too fucking skinny for 2 rooms and a hall down the middle). My only regret in retrospect is that I didn't knock the ground floor walls down too and start from the foundation. I made so many changes to the framing, windows and doors size and placement etc, that I ended up with a real chopped up frame on the first floor. I was very eager to get the tyvek over this baby before ant real carpenters saw what I had done. Anyway, man, we love our place. Good on ya! Freeman

Hey Mr. Last Nail. Love the blog. I'm a "degree holding" sculptor, certified, yes they told me i could legally do I love materials and power tools...YEAH! Great fun reading the process of your house, funny as hell. Though i'm all the way in pakistan and generally houses here are brick and cement, so this actually a step by step on a different mode, with entertaining writing on the side. So thanks! Best of luck with the house! bREAK A LEG (O u already did that with the table!)(Break the intruders head next time!)

Very interesting outlook on such a simple item. Good luck with it. It would be even more interesting if you had the former pets scultpted to seem like they still inhabited it from the inside. Good luck. :)

you can't get rid of those. you can't. I know it's sketchy having haunted dog houses in your backyard, because at night you hear the not-really-pitter-patter of not-really-dog feet, but think of the alternative... you tear down those doghouses, those dog spirits gotta go somewhere. and maybe they'll wander off... but I wouldn't bet on it.

had the same situation in my sub-basement, when I was putting in a new drain line. fucking TEDDY BEAR face down in the dirt. teddy bear. what am I supposed to do, leave him there, face down? you don't want to be incurring the wrath of fricking teddy bear ghosts. but you can't just throw that shit out, either. that's worse. I settled on just sitting him up straight and hoping he's cool with that.

How about combining the "Museum of Unnatural History 1" with the "Museum of Unnatural History 4"??

Give each of those critters a home?

The pictures of the dog houses remind me so much of the dog houses we had for my dogs as a kid. They were so sad. Ty for helping me remember. I miss all my pets!

Gotta love the humor in it all...our house is 80 years old, and believe me I can commiserate! We have no haunted dog house, but the chicken coop creeps me out (maybe we should get some chickens?). We do have a primitive Swedish canoe in our front yard, however...

Hang in there, and try not to hurt yourself too bad. =oP

I love the free-association links from random words in your posts. An expression of the beauty of online writing as well as a cheeky nod to link infested posts. Moreover, was just plain fun to explore and see what would pop up.
