Crown Returns


Interesting way.

Next time Iím back at this house I want to look again. The pictures donít have the affect of being there in person.

I will get pics of another house I watch. I must have deleted them. Maybe today.

Re: Crown Returns


That's how we always do them. What are the other options?

Maybe those pics belong in the wall of shame. Nothing looks right about it.

Re: Crown Returns


I would assume the ceiling is white!
And in Fla, the register would be in the ceiling.

That's what I thought when looking at the original pics... otherwise, what's that special about it?

The whole thing is an optical illusion.

Goes to show you how important perspective is.

Re: Crown Returns


You guys are too funny. The ceiling is white. The a/c grill is on the ceiling.
Next time Iím back at that house Iím going to look again. I didnít think the crown was upside down but it looks that way in the picture.

I promise to get pics of the other house with crazy crown returns.

Re: Crown Returns


Maybe they did the crown before standing the wall, and they got confused when it was laying down!!!!!!!
