When I was inspecting the outside of the house I didn’t think too much about this planter on the edge of the walkway. Looked pretty much like a planter on the edge of the walkway. What do you think?
When I was inspecting the interior and got to the teenage boy’s room at this location–and saw the dirt and foot prints on the window sill I realized this planter was actually stairs–disguised as a planter.
Now I couldn’t tell whether this was to let the girlfriend in the window, or for him to get out the window to meet the girlfriend in the middle of the night. Regardless it is what teenagers do. If parents were designed to be awake when teenagers were designed to be awake this sort of shenanigans would be less prevalent. Pro-creation is insidious in more ways than we can imagine. That said, it is important to get the right window.
I am sure that somewhere, in another neighborhood, there is another planter outside a young girl’s bedroom window.
