Love Shack: Interiors

Just a few simple rules...



Mind your head...



Wipe your feet ...



Will you get the tea things while I ...



Open the window. The latch is a bit tricky ...



Nothing beats natural light.



Ok, I've got to go. If you want to hang out, don't forget to lock the door.

Excuse me, but that's my living room you're talking about. Minus the tea.

Terry B, Blue Kitchen said...

Um, yikes.

Pasadena Adjacent said...

those are some roomy files

Jean Spitzer said...

You are extraordinarily brave to have explored the inside of this shack for us.

Paula said...

I'm guessing that the Orkin man never made it in.

Above the City said...

Awesome.

Any hints to where this is? And can I visit?!

Anonymous said...

Oh great, now what? You locked us in.

Looks like the aftermath of The Evil Dead.

Pardon my dust.

Susan Campisi said...

And careful of those giant nails...

Katie said...

For a change, I'm not feeling any real estate envy looking at these photos.

altadenahiker said...

That's ok, Katie. Call it a placeholder. Because tomorrow we're busting out of here with the first of a three-part series. I wrote it in my head during several walks -- the ruthless business of childhood politics. Too bad my head isn't an iPad. But I think I've got most of it...

Petrea Burchard said...

It would be great for my plants.

I hope you wore sensible shoes.

I think the leaning out window is PERFECT new invention...can't imagine why no one has though of it before! A rain AND dust collector in one!

and---
wonderful natural light.

old style roofing design.

descriptive, helpful signage.

and, oh gawd, PLEASE tell me that isn't rusted out old electric service panels?

oh sorry, I was distracted...

ahem...

convenient dog door for your pooch.

lovely open architecture and garden views.

please inquire at the establishment down the road.

lol..wipe your feet..bwhahaha!

wv: wfulated...that cabin has been wfulated to the left, wfulated to the right and I think someone wfulated the roof too!

Marjie said...

There's a lot of natural ventilation going on there.

altadenahiker said...

How about this: Not just another pretty face.

Ken Mac said...

i can just see you and Fess Parker in here.

You clean it up, make it solid, and I'll live there. Well, I would if it were up to me. (oops, put this on yesterday's post--both a mistake and not a mistake). Toss in climate control and big flat screen TV, and I'm your man. (Is there a Mom & Pop breakfast place within a mile?).

The fence looks OK.

Well, sheesh - all you need to do is straighten out that off-kilter siding, break out the Shop Vac, realign that tenuous window, and you've got yourself a million dollar Green & Green replica. Zip code and awesome fireplace are also de rigueur in the LA real estate market.

Nutty Gnome said...

Haha ...over here the Estate Agents would describe them as 'in need of some renovation'!
I love 'em :)

Bellis said...

Here it would be described as a bucolic fixer-upper. What I love most about this house is the new lock on the door - that'll definitely keep the burglars out (but not AH).

Trish said...

all of this reminds me of the old joke about the guys realizing they locked their keys in the car, working hard to break in. one of them says to the first one "you'd better work quickly, the top is down and it looks like it's going to rain soon!"

but I'd guess the lock on this one is a technicality...I TOLD you not to go in there, you entered illegally and woomp, there it came down! NOT my fault you're missing limbs!

fixer...yeah, fix it with a dozer and dump truck!

Old shacks are scary... Scary as in Blair Witch Project scary!
You are really funny...

sonia a. mascaro said...

I can imagine when the cabin was inhabitable... The fireplace looks nice.
I have fear to explore abandoned houses because maybe there is bat inside...

PS: I agree with you, the photo of the building reminds me of Rear Window too.

This ol' shack is fulfilling it's destiny...as photographic subject extraordinaire!!!
