Today we’ll going to show you a tip that will banish tangled and knotted extension cords from your life. It’s called the Contractor’s Wrap, and I learned it from a Boy Scout leader who worked as an HVAC man back when my mustache was merely peach fuzz.

Listed for $4.9 million, this Chino Hills home wasn’t yet completed, but an awesome replica was created for the listing photos. For children skilled in building LEGO mansions, there could a be a future career in constructing miniature home replicas.

The photogenic tyke caught the attention of sites like Hooked on Houses – and eventually a new owner — because the home sold within months.
