Weekly Blend: June 9, 2017

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:

People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. That’s why you’ll be hard pressed to find any rocks around this P.E.I. man’s glass bottle village.

If you combined the Grateful Dead and the Muppets together in some far-out universe, I could definitely see them living in this house… Is this Franklin’s Tower!? ?

I should, I could include this link. “One link, two links,” the thinker thinks.
Sorry, news of this Dr. Seuss museum has obviously impacted my writing.

Making the bed with your own two hands? What is this, 1995? Just ask Ori, an automated movable modular unit to arrange that for you.

 This Newfoundland man hopes these ravens return to his home nevermore. That’s because they keep thrashing about his Harbour Breton home.

Who needs a guard dog when you can have a guard bear that also plays piano!

The famous glass house from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is getting a complete makeover and no, it’s not because Cameron Frye crashed it through one of the giant windows.

Can a room be a room without walls or a roof? I just got philosophical on you. This unique suite in a field will cost you $300, but those Swiss Alps views are priceless.

Can a boat be a boat if it’s never going in the water? I know, this week’s Blend is deep. This one-of-a-kind Milwaukee “boat house” is looking for a new captain.

The Beverly Hills homes of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher are for sale as one estate for $18 million.

Want to live in a House of Cards? Not literally, of course. But Frank Underwood’s home will soon be on the auction block.

Living large in a tiny house is a lot harder than realty TV makes it seem. This is what no one tells you about the tiny home lifestyle.
