Weekly Blend: January 11, 2019

The Weekly Blend is your “weekly” source covering real estate news that you just may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to share please feel free to share it in our comments section or tweet about it using the hashtag #WeeklyBlend. So brew yourself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy these stories. Maybe even share them with friends or colleagues. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

Would you look at that? This company’s smart wood home device could be mistaken for a railing or a part of your home’s frame. But it’s minimalist, so it’s trendy!

This subdivision will be head and shoulders above the rest, so long as it’s not cursed. A cluster of 1,600-year-old decapitated skeletons were found during excavations for a U.K. housing development.

I’m sure this Manitoba snow maze isn’t a terrifying experience, but all I can think of is that scene from The Shining where an ax-wielding Jack is clumsily stalking Danny in the hedge maze. Nightmares.

At this point, these snowbanks in Cape Breton Highlands National Park might require a chairlift to get around. The 15-foot-high snowbanks are causing chaos to commuters.

Cleaning snow off a roof has never looked so satisfying. These two Norwegian men caused a mini avalanche with their unique technique.

Why you going to the airport? Flying somewhere? You can live like Lloyd and Harry for a weekend with this Denver hotel’s Dumb and Dumber package. Big Gulps, huh? Alright! Well… see you later!

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly spent $250 million on his new yacht, roughly the same amount it cost him to buy the NFL team in 1989, when adjusted for inflation.

Want to live by the ocean, but you’re worried climate change could one day wash away your home? This part-boat, part-house has expandable “legs” that can lift the house 20 feet.

You can’t beat free. While the 125-year-old Paisley House in Chilliwack, British Columbia, is technically on the market for $0, the new owner will need about $50,000 to move it.
