      Based on the toilet, it looks like it was even plumbed. Illegal rental? Criminal hideout?

        Worth noting, Part I was posted two years ago. Several people called him out.

        Here's the best comment of the thread

        OP·21 hr. ago

        Sorry it's a real hassle to get in there, and also no good reason to go up there. But we had to check on some things so I though I might as well take some pics.

        No good reason?! Sir there is an ENTIRE A_SS HOUSE in your fricking attic LOL

        I mean my account is 11 years old it says and this is easily one of the topmost fascinating things I've ever seen on Reddit. Can't wait for future updates. ATTIC HOUSE!

          wait, toilet? Which picture are you looking at?

          Nm. Several links scattered throughout parts 1 and 2..

          It was apparently a rooftop house above a store of some sort. Then the store was converted to a church. In the process of converting it to a church, they just built around the mother**** and put a roof over it. The church has since been converted to a house.

            Great place, just needs some minor renovations.
            I am sure americas home place guys would make a candy out of it in now time .
            First i read about them in these reviews and later on they repaired our bathroom and did a very good job.

            • Well, our vacuum broke this week. Looked at repair parts but it's just barely worth it. They're available but the thing is probably 15-20 years old. My wife inherited it and it's time to eBay it for parts. We wanted something that's going to be able to handle the tornado of children and the mess they leave.

              Decided to splurge and get a Miele. After teaching reviews of and the major brands including shark, Dyson, kenmore, Hoover, etc. We are firmly against contributing to eWaste. I couldn't bring myself to spend $150-$200 on something that's going to break in two years. Plus the nightmarish brush assembly from shark scared me off from them. Dyson sounds like they've coasted for about 15 years and most of their **** is just great marketing now. I wanted something that can be serviced and have parts available.

              Plus Miele happened to have a 20% off sale on the model I wanted so....

                  Holy moly. This thing is (relatively) quiet. You used to be able to tell at the end of the driveway if someone was vacuuming. You could literally hold a normal volume conversation with someone in the same room while vacuuming.

                  It's also very compact. Shockingly small. A little clunky to use since it's a canister. But since I grew up with one, it'll come back pretty quickly.

                  It's also quite well built. I'm pretty sure I could hit a telephone pole with the metal tube and it wouldn't even dent.

                  Switching from bagless to bags, hard to tell if it's picking up more than the old vacuum but I have to believe it is.

                  • I decided to redecorate my living room recently. Now, I'm at the finish line and hope to end it soon. Now I'm looking for some furniture. I came across really beautiful furniture in Ginnys store. But I've read some reviews here https://ginnys.****edconsumer.com/review.html and people are dissatisfied with their service. So, now I don't know what to do.

                        Which Miele model did you get? My old one(from like 2003) lasted me almost 2 decades, but at this point I kinda need a new one
