My Strange House-How did I ever live there?

Many years ago my husband and I bought a townhouse that was being built. We thought it was going to be finished a certain date and the bad weather held up some of the things that needed to get done. We could not get the certificate of occupancy and we had to get out of our house as it was sold and the closing was scheduled. We were living in one state and moving to another so the only thing we could do until the new place was finished was rent a place to live month to month. It wasn't easy as we had two large dogs and 3 cats. We did find a place to rent and it was way out in the sticks. It was on a old unused basketball camp. It was very secluded which we liked with all the animals. We didn't check it out thoroughly, we were just happy to find something. What could go wrong? As it turned out, being it was a basketball camp at one time, everything was very high. I couldn't even see in the bathroom mirror and I was not short at the time. It was old and did have some strange things. The clothes dryer was outside on a porch. Luckily we were only there less than 6 months and we did last and so did the animals.

It did have a basketball court but it was all vacant as we were the only ones living there at the time. There were a few houses there to but no one was there. I was glad as I didn't worry about my dogs running loose. My one dog was very, very big.

Guess you had to have a step stool or two handy! I would like for my dryer to be on the porch in the summer months. It gets too hot when you run it inside in the summertime. But, then again, I hope to have a clothesline in place by the spring so I can hang the clothes out to dry.
