I'd really like to have a solarium with an endless pool and a hot tub. Time to start playing Lotto, I guess.

Yeah.  My reaction was to think if the youth pastor wants to appear before a judge maybe.

The pool "cool deck" near that man-door is cracked and it looks like there's some heaving over on the right side where it goes into the former garage.  I fully expect that the whole thing was shoddily built and will require significant repairs.

If one wants an indoor/outdoor pool that actually works well, the whole thing needs to be inside with glass rolling garage doors around the perimeter and sufficient separation from the structure supports to the edge of the pool.  Open the doors and now it's outdoors, close the doors when the weather is bad in order to enjoy the pool off-season.  Something like this would be useless off-season because the water would be far too cold even with the door down.

I lived in a mobile home for a while and it had a gigantic party tub in the back as a consolation prize for living there.  It was a cool tub...

That's what I think about this place.  If you must live in Ohio, this place is alright.

wow. i can find absolutely nothing redeeming about this house. and i'm usually one to look for the positives.

These guys wanted a pool a lot more than a driveway.  That's what this is.

The inside doesn't look bad, but the outside looks like crap.

PaulRB: These guys wanted a pool a lot more than a driveway.  That's what this is.


Nope. The garage is rear facing and there's no real track around to the front. Maybe it started life as a work area?

Also why four split levels when the ground is flat as fark? I actually like split-levels, short staircases are lovely space definitions, but you usually need rock hills to justify them.

So many questions about that home.

Yeah, about the only thing I liked about the house was the kitchen and that wasn't because of the ice cream bar and the wood-paneled room with built-in bookcases isn't too shabby.The walls in the bedrooms are hideous. One of the bathroom looks like they had a ceiling leak in the bath/shower and the wallpaper in the other bathroom looks like it might be peeling off above the sink area.

All-in-all this appears to be a neglected and poorly maintained house that will take a lot of time and money to fix up.

Why yes, I do want a giant gap between the concrete and water level when the garage door is down that cold air will blow through all winter. That place is perfect.

Now I'm thinking about building a pool in my garage.  Man. I never considered it as even a possibility before now.  Stupid Ohio.

The water would be far too hard in the winter.

Don't worry, it's probably just daisy chained to some power tools and a generator.

We don't need no stinking gfci's. Damn things are always tripping for some damn reason.

Reminds me of a site from a while back where home inspectors would post pictures of the scariest things they found. One was a shower with a live non GFI outlet in it.

I had a client once who had a full size pool - what'd you find at a legit recreation center not a 30 dollar kiddy pool from Walmart - in their basement, the humidity in their house was absolutely horrific.

I'd think you'd have to leave the garage door open year round, or you're going to rot out the rafters.

I design natatoriums.  Now they are usually big commercial or institutional spaces but I did have a doctor come to me and design a pool house for him.  The AC for the place cost as much as the pool.  He flipped his shiat. Fast forward about two years.
Digby, Dr. Aintgonnapaythat is on the phone.
Now he had to pay a shiatload for mold remediation and double to retrofit with a system that would work.
 
2021-04-16 8:29:52 AM  
So, anyone notice the security problem?  Door down, you just swim underneath the door into the space, maybe get access to the house, definitely get access to the dessert bar.  Junkies take note!

My client had ongoing / constant issues with electronic devices failing. They ran a business out of their 2nd and 3rd floors . 1st floor was kitchen/dining and the basement was mostly the pool.  In the summer I was out there twice a month fixing or replacing something.

"oh we leave the windows open and the moisture flows out".

I had a built in OUTDOOR pool and my wood fence turned green from all the moisture. I can't imagine the mess of having that in the basement.

Big selling point for my dad's golf course condo was the indoor pool.  He wasn't so happy a few years later when there was a $10K charge for everyone to tear down the 15 year old pool structure.

It's damn near impossible to get the chlorine smell out of a pool room.  There are some expensive chemical filters that can do it.  The only other way is with air changes to keep the humidity down but you end up evaporating so much of the pool water that way it cost a lot too.

The amount of water the said Doctor was now using was his new complaint.  I finally told him to go fark off and never call me again.  He threatened to sue blah blah blah....

I despise swimming in an indoor pool.  It always feels like I'm breathing wet, chlorinated air. I guess I am. I don't like it.

Eh?  That's mostly reflected in the price.  You'd expect anything of this size (>3,000sq ft) to go for above $400k even in Weaverville, OH.  While I can't see the as much of the damage as some other farkers, presumably it is sufficiently obvious enough in person that they have to knock a healthy chunk off the price.

I suspect I'd like looking at it, but be glad I passed on it when I think of all the work it needs (and how stupid the pool is) as well as how little I'd like the stupid extras.

Assuming you don't want a pool, I'd assume this is similar.  Note that the damage in the house in TFA could easily be covered by the furnishings shown.

I am not sure why you responded to my comment. We both seem to think that this is a piece of shiat, no?  Unless you are saying that for the price the bones of the property look fine and You can make any improvements that you want. Anyways, I am a little confused.
