Semantics

American realtors are masters of semantics, especially when it comes to describing a less-than-ideal house. With that in mind, let me introduce you to a "quaint little fixer-upper" :D

This is actually an abandoned shanty constructed by a homeless person off Frager Road in Kent WA. It was probably covered with thick tarps which were removed and taken when the resident moved on. I can almost guarantee that once the weather worsens, the trash will be removed, tarps and/or scrap plywood installed and with a small propane stove, it will again be someone's home. As the realtors would say, it has "potential".
