I applaud her artistic talent and undoubted hard work in wanting to create something that reflects her personality so vividly. But to think that any sane person would then want to buy it & have to renovate every square inch is just crazy. But I wish her the best if luck. It looks fantastic but surely nothing a few coats of paint won’t sort out? Clearly making a story out of it for a bit of free advertising.
Saying it's unreliable is a bit over the top. All the owner did was paint the place...not put the bathroom outside or take all the doors out. With a repaint, it would be a nice place. She could open it up got little girls bday party’s 👌 I’d rather lick piss from a nettle than buy that That is bright. Why unsellable? Never heard of white paint?
Everything sells at the right price She didn't turn it into a dolls house, she tuned it into the Big Breakfast house from the 90's. 🤢🤢🤢
