Abandoned House: Recession Home

Sunset tour of a “crash” house, left abandoned following the 2008 market crash. The house was once a nice little family home but it’s been abused by vandals, stripped by metal thieves, and left a sad, silent carcass.

Let’s start the tour on the front porch.

Out back, the deck is thoroughly and dangerously rotten.

Wait, what’s that… a basement? What a strange place for that.

Let’s avoid going down there.

Careful, watch your step in here…

Considering the state of the deck, let’s avoid the stairs for now…

Strangely, this was the bedroom, with a hot tub.

Sun is setting. Time to leave. Using the (safer) front door.

One thought on “Abandoned House: Recession Home

  1. Love the aura of lost potential, abandonment and sadness of loss from these. Also, they are quite a commentary on the basic destructiveness of humans. Wonder if this was another victim of the 2008 crash and the greed of the loan companies and banks? How many million little homes have waited forlornly and vainly while falling back into the earth over the centuries? Carpe diem.
