    Re: Ugliest House of The Year Contest

    Sadly, I've helped volunteer to fix up houses a lot worse than any of those.

    Though the families we served were some of the best people I've met in my life. I've never seen a little girl so excited to show me 1/4 of the bed she slept on.

    I think all of those houses would have been best served by remodeling with either a bulldozer or high explosives.

    I like that some of those places had satellite dishes... I guess everyone has priorities.

    Agreed. It's such a "how can I be happy now" mentality even though the floor is falling through.

    I love my Cyclones, but I don't think I'd ever do this to my house. This is in Altoona.

    My rental house has a dish, and that thing is just there. The landlord told me it was only used for 3 months, 4 years ago. Just because it's there doesn't mean it's hooked up to anything.

    Is there something wrong with the color, or is it really that color?

    No, that's it. It's just South of Prarie Meadows. The first time I drove by it I had to do a double take.

    Re: Ugliest House of The Year Contest

    Jeff Foxworthy had a "Redneck Yard of the Week" on the blue collar comedy show at one point. If it wasn't for having to get permission of the owner to submit the photo the rental duplex down the street had a small tree growing out of the basement window sill and a car that was not parked all the way in the garage and the door rested on the back bumper. You really can't find another foot in front of that crappy car to move it inside far enough to close the door? Fortunately they finally moved out a couple months ago and took the car with them but now there is trash from when they moved out sitting outside by the garage. Everyone else keeps their place nice but this 1 eye sore. The neighbor next to them has even been wanting to put up a privacy fence so he doesn't have to see that place.

    Re: Ugliest House of The Year Contest

    A buddy of mine used to live in the Los Angeles area. He would tell me about the local tv morning shows having a "Backyard of the Morning." They would show someones run down, trashy back yard from the news helicopter. As this was being shown on TV the theme from "Sanford and Son" would be playing along with it.

    Re: Ugliest House of The Year Contest

    In our old house the neighbors had flower beds that took up 99% of the front yard. My step-dad is a landscape architect, he told me everything growing in them was a weed of some sort. They also had 6 trees (full size) in a yard that was maybe 40x15. There back yard was worse. I never actually saw them mow it.

    We called it the Jungle house.

    The thing about that picture that makes me cringe the most is the privacy fence.
    Take a look at it on the left side. Yellow with a red stripe. Really?

    Those houses have nothing on these trailers.
