It’s been such a hot and dry summer that if you aren’t regularly watering, you’re fucked.

They need to really figure out how to stay in this house. It is the best chance they have for stability. I just thought of this but I wonder if they actually were renting to own and the seller can no longer afford to rent to own? And they cannot get a mortgage?

I have all the Zillow pictures but I'm struggling to figure out how to hide them under the spoiler tag so all 30 of them don't attempt to load at once. Very embarrassing for a SysAdmin 😕

I agree. I remember when they were traveling so much a few years ago and I was glad they made it home for the holidays. That home is about a million times better than the RV. Plus they are close to family. Which is huge because when Ma and Pa Noyes aren’t around, all the work and childcare is up to the Rod girls.

I think we knew this but they only paid $125,000.  And they are listed on the deed.

The appraised value was $132,000.
 

WVa does not list mortgage info.

The house isn't AS bad as I imagined it for Jill, the over decorated kitschy stuff everywhere is of no suprise, but it isn't HOLY SHIT awful either. 

As for paining over wall paper, please be a kind soul and don't. When we moved into our current home some 15 years ago, there was a lot of wall paper on the walls, only we had no idea just HOW much wall paper and paint and wall paper and paint and wall paper and paint were on the walls.  Our bathroom had so many layers of wallpaper and paint that the walls felt cushy. When I went to strip it off, the last layers had so much glue on them, we wound up having to just gut the walls down to the drywall and start over,  we couldn't get all the layers off with out destroying the finish, We had to do this in 1 & 1/2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms and the kitchen. It was a FUCKING NIGHTMARE! We vowed to never by a home with wall paper ever again.

I'm not super experienced with real estate, but they didn't buy that house long ago. If the house only appraised for $132,000 then, what's the likelihood that it will appraised for over $180k now? Unless they have done several significant improvements or the area has become more desirable, I would think getting the house to appraise for over $50k more in just a few years would be difficult. That's going to make it hard to complete a sale.

100% likelihood.  This is Jill freaking Rodrigues.  God loves her best and he will get her an extra $48k.  

And a kitchen aid mixer.

For all we know, Jill will sell this house and pop up with a bigger one and free moving.  Or, they'll live in the RV.  No in between with these folks.

I think Jill might be a low-key hoarder, actually.  There are certain things about her lifestyle that help mitigate some of the issues that pop up in the worst instances of hoarding...  for example, her eleventy kids each spending half a day on chores every day help ensure that all her collections aren’t just turning into straight dust traps.  Also, her eleventy children actually ARE a valid excuse for the ‘acquisition’ aspect of hoarding- IE, she’s always got a reason to be shopping for or taking donations of more kids clothes, or buying extreme amounts of groceries.

Some people consider having over a certain number of pets to be animal hoarding.  I’m not trying to judge anyone or say where the line should be drawn, other than, “don’t have more than you can afford to take care of and spend time loving.”  For me, 2 cats is a good fit, although I’m sure I could handle 3 or 4 just fine.  There might be parallels to be drawn with numbers of kids too, although that’s another place where I feel like I’m not the one who should be drawing that line, so make your own conclusions.

But with Jill, it’s like there’s the incredible, whirlwind amount of STUFF that she has.  It sure seems to me like Jill has never met a tchotchke she didn’t like, or a stuffed animal she didn’t want to keep forever.  The endless accessories and seemingly never-before-seen outfits are another sign (...where does she get it all from?  Where does it go?)   I don’t think it’s tipped quite over the balance yet, but it will be interesting to see what happens down the road...  Especially as her kids get older and move on to their own lives and Jill doesn’t have as much help keeping things tidy.

I think the stuff may be insecurity.  If she can get stuff and keep stuff, for free or low cost, she thinks she's doing well.  I mean, it's the only way she gets stuff.  When a person works for their money, it's harder to part with. Tending to buy what you need with quality in mind, so it lasts you.  Unless you are a true hoarder or have a spending problem, buying anything has real consequences and value. Jill has things and stuff.  She's not thinking about how to use their money wisely and strech it.  Because for Jill, money is something she sometimes gets her hands on.  The rest is grift.  And, one never knows when cheap or free topiaries may come again!  Maybe to Jill, stuff fills a void.  Having stuff makes her feel rich in a way. She has been blessed within literally inch of her house.  If an appliance goes out? Oh, well.  Just wait until someone gives them it.  Car in a crash?  Someone will give them an even better car.  She tries to be humble with her desires for what she wants but it's bullshit.  Um, Macy's registry much?  Too bad she'll never know how nice it is to work and save to finally get that Kitchen Aid.  She says she doesn't need fancy but, Oh Boy would she love to have lots of money!  Who doesn't? It really makes life easier and it's fun to take nice vacations, shop and buy good food. I mean, that's why I work!  I want to live life way more than not work.  If my husband decided to just not work for no reason, I'd freak out!

I wonder what she'll do with all that stuff if they actually sell the house.  Homeschool picnic retreat revival yard sale?

Wow. Where did they get $125,000?? Or the credit to borrow $125,000? Both seem literally impossible. If they’re listed on the deed, then it was really them and not Jill’s parents. (Though they may still be cosigners, I guess??) I would love to see that paperwork. Were they honest about their sources of income?

A mystery. This is a genuine mystery.

@hollyfeller, the cabinets would not be so bad if the whole kitchen were not dark.  And if they came all the way up to the ceiling.  The cupboards tops are gonna get so dusty and greasy.  

@Dandruff,  I'd suggest a bonfire for all the crap in the house.  Might cause  air pollution.  Maybe a sarcophagus like is over the ruined reactors at Chernobyl would be better.

When I remodeled my kitchen back in 2011, a fellow kitchen remodeler recommended I remove the soffets between the ceiling and the tops of my old cabinets (“They used to do it that way because it was cheaper than installing taller cabinets”) and put in cabinets that went up to the ceiling. It was a smart move: it gives me a lot more storage space and the kitchen has a more modern look.

Our kitchen was remodeled decades ago. I’m actually completely fine with the cabinets except I wish they would go all the way to the ceiling. When we first moved in, I put some decorative stuff up there. And now it’s all dusty and awful. I want to completely clear it off but it will be a lot of work that I don’t feel like doing.

Our old cat loved to sleep on top of the cupboards. It was his favorite spot. But we had popcorn ceilings and he was a big cat so there was always cat hair caught in the ceiling. 😂

I don't like that my cabinets don't go up all the way either. Many years ago I looked into if we could put in small cabinets above, and the answer was yes if we have at least 12 inches of clearance. I was thinking of doing some with glass doors to showcase a few nice pieces we have and the rest regular doors to hide stuff. They wouldn't hold a lot but it would hold many items we only use a few times a year. We haven't done it yet because later we wanted to do an addition and then the entire kitchen would have been change but that hasn't happened either.
