About a week and a half ago, we asked people to send in their worst house stories when we posted this picture of Derek's "Mother of all Mouse Nests"...
Now it's time to VOTE FOR YOUR CANDIDATES!!!
We don't have punchcards or fancy kiosks here at HouseinProgress, but we can use two things: 1) email, and 2) the Honor System.
Remember the honor system? Boy, I sure do. My first grade teacher, Mrs. Hangen, drummed it into our heads and it was the first case of dread that I experienced as a six year old. "What if I have already blown this honor system thing??!! Because I didn't know about it??!! Why didn't they tell me about this in kindergarten???!!"
I was kind of high strung like that.
Anyway, you will be voting for your candidates (one reader equals one vote) by sending EMAIL to a special account for scientific tabulation.
Here are your choices:
#1 Derek, his mouse nest, the 10 ft x 2 ft hole in his rotted floor, and the 70 sq feet of removed stucco. (Story here)
#2 Sean's mummified kitty and its removal--which caused it to fall into pieces (Story in comments section here)
#3 John's rotton termite-destroyed walls, LIVE termites (eating the house out from under him) and HIS skeletons. (Story starts here)
#4 Jonathan's houseful of bat "guano" and one iron fell when the ceiling came down--stitches required (Story in comments section here)
#5 Cheryl and the crazy previous owners who REALLY muddled their house, her leg went through the floor in their bath (Story starts in comments section here)
Here is where you send ONE email for the WORST old house renovation project story (by the way, HouseinProgress does NOT collect email addresses or do any foo-foo marketing...we don't have time. Your email will be erased when the vote is over 'cause I have to get insulation into the attic before it snows. Vote with confidence.):
#1 Derek email@example.com
#2 Sean firstname.lastname@example.org
#3 John email@example.com
#4 Jonathan firstname.lastname@example.org
#5 Cheryl email@example.com
Happy Voting! Polls close Friday, October 8th at midnight, Central Standard Time. No debates, no spin, no opinionated pundits, no finger pointing or snarkiness. Just happy happy voting here.
