Dad felt it would warm up the house.

Mike Brady, eat your heart out. We don’t have tiger the DOG, we have a house full of cats with a house sized cat tree. Groovy Baby. Groovy.
it looks furry.
That looks just like my aunts house.
A rare look at MC Escher and his family.
OMG. I’ve been in this house. Is it on San Souci Dr? I totally recognize it!
It looks like he even has the lovely popcorn sprayed on ceiling. WHY?
‘Cause since the divorce, Dad converted the whole upstairs to a black-light waterbed lounge, and the theme has to carry through to the foyer. Watch your head on the low-hanging beer sign.
I think that’s VELVET, the stiff, fakey kind they used to line the interior of their “Rolling Thunder” Chevy van that’s parked outside, with the epic Franzetti knock-off murals depicting bosomy American Indian maidens and maniacal eagles, blasting Steppenwolf.
I bet their cat loved it!
What the HECK?
Wonder when the record’s coming out?
Guess what the worst chore in this household is? (hint: it’s not dusting)
Nothing is more homey than pressed particle board.
You can tell by the look son their faces and their poses that they totally think this is bad@ss cool.
Looks like a giant cat condo!
This reminds me of my aunt’s house in the 70s. Same open stairway with carpeting on the sides (but not on the posts). But her carpet was purple shag.
The dad’s ‘deep thinker’ pose is epic.
I bet you the cats still used the sofa and the faux-Oriental rug, too.
The house I grew up in, built 1983, had a banister just like that, not the weird modular wall add on, the banister.
Carpet burns every time you slid down the banister?
They must have cats – scratching post heaven!
Sam its your turn to vaccum the ugly carpet around the staircase!!! Why!
Anyone ever been to the House on the Rock in Spring Green, WI? I think perhaps Dad and Mom may have spent some time there to get some decorating tips……
I so want to see what this house looks like now.
Maybe they’re Mennonites, and didn’t believe in wasting anything. When they had carpet remnants, they told the Home Depot guys, “no, leave them, we’ll use them somehow.”
So wait – are you saying this reminds people of a kitty condo?!
yeah i wasn’t clear on that either….
I can’t wrap my head around this one. So very odd.
20 Years Later in a therapist’s office…
“I had a horrible childhood. We had this staircase and my father put carpet all over it. We were never allowed to go beyond the ‘carpet zone’, as my father called it. Not above and NEVER below, my father would sit at the bottom to ensure this. I know it’s almost impossible to imagine but…wait, I think I have a photo here.”
Oh, i so think you are right on this one. i bet that took years of the therapist’s life!
awesome reply lol
It only happens during a full moon
And I thought “Get him to the Greek” made furry walls look cool
At least the floors are waxed.
I feel so sorry for those classic Ansel Adams pictures. Looks like the house is a giant cat tree!
I bet the cats liked it!
looks like a giant cat scratching post.
A giant scratching post…?
Looks like a giant cat condo
That’s exactly what I was thinking…. all it needs is a catnip mouse hanging off the wall.
It looks like those cat-climbing/scratching posts that you see in pet stores . . .
Looks like a big Cat Tree
A deer blind in the living room. Nice.
It looks like a huge cat climbing post.
if it’s good enough for Graceland…
heeheehee, good one!
Looks like the Inception team need a new Architect.
Okay. That’s funny.
I usually HATE HATE HATE people’s comments to these, but yours was pretty good.
I’m pretty sure we all HATE HATE HATE your comment also. So, pfffffft to you.
And Pipergirl, your comment was better than pretty good. It was very funny and clever.
But Honey,when you said you wanted a matte finish,I had an entirely different idea in my head.
I totally just snorted!
Brady Bunch: The Lost Episode
Alice finds the bag of “mushrooms” in Greg’s backpack and includes them in Mr. Brady’s soup that night. Mr. Brady suddenly comes up with the architectural idea of a lifetime!
“Here’s the story of a man named Brady, who was busy carpeting the walls…..”
Maybe they have cats. I know my cat would love that!
Yep…….it’s a cat house!
Heck of a way to babyproof the house. Now we won’t have to worry if little Johnny hits his head on the wall.
Sometimes things SEEM like a good idea……
I would love to see the guys face who cleans their carpets prior to this SNAFU !
It was time for him to arrive for his yearly steam clean at the Rodriguez household and he
enters through the front doors with Stain Glass that has an Owl on it, and says to his carpet cleaning partner….WTF is this ? Did you bring the ceiling attachment Hank ??? I hope you brought a lunch, because this is gonna take hours. This is a job for 2 guys….I’m gonna run down to Home Depot and rent a Rug Doctor with a 72 ft. extension hose and some F-ing Scaffolding !!!
look under mom…. Is that a TV build into the wall?
Correction – it is a TV built into the cat tree.
omg! first thing I thought was that the stairs/walls double as a giant scratching post! and brady bunch-esque! lol
Mike Brady lets his perm grow out and look what happens! Love those groovy ’70′s angles.
Reminds me of when we bought our house: one day, 17 years before, when the wife was at work, the hubby and his buddy had a few beverage and decided to put up rough barn board paneling in the living room, covering up the textured Spanish plaster, arched knick-knack coves and plaster crown molding. When we asked what was behind the paneling, she glared at her hubby and spat out, “Isn’t that nice? This is what I come home to after a hard day of work… etc.” Please ask first before embarking on a home decorating extravaganza.
