Those chairs are facing the 'Jill killer' staircase? 

I find that a strange angle. 
 

The caterwauling area does look nicer!

I am concerned about one of the pictures of the "decor".  The one that shows real greenery amongst non-LED lightbulbs.  Non-LED bulbs get hot, and "fresh" greenery dries out very fast.  That does looks like an invitation for a fire, in my opinion.  Even fake greenery will get too hot around regular light bulbs.  I hope the lights are really LED, but that many would cost much more, so......

Also, get rid of all the small rugs.  They are a tripping hazard!!

Too MUCH stuff. It’s suffocating to look at all that dust catching decorations. 
 

 

And I can just imagine how claustrophobic it feels when the whole family is milling about.

I have just one word. Yuck!

I wonder how the smaller children will negotiate those stairs…  I don’t think Jill will be the only one “severely injured” by the killer stairs.

Honestly, it's nicer than I expected.  It certainly isn't my taste, and I'm sure every aspect of it is substandard (except for the Amish work), but it's kind of cozy?  Who was the designer who said something like "remove 1 accessory before leaving the house?"  

The person who famously said that was the Nazi-fucker Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel.

The musical notes on the back of the stair steps!  So necessary to the musical nook.  I just hope Tim is sexting.

Tim, just create your own SM accounts under a fake name. What teen (and I know he’s older ) wouldn’t have thought of that by now?

Isn’t shiplap very 2017? 🤣 and it was ugly then.

I wouldn’t consider that shiplap, that’s faux wood paneling that was all the rage in 1977. I get they’re on a budget, but all those different faux wood finishes against the real wood stairs just looks terrible. The stairs are definitely the best part of the addition.

The dark haired Rodlet (Hannah, I think?) is holding Nemo in two of the pictures posted above. In one he's just a bundle in her arms, but if you zoom in on the second you can see his little face.

In one of her vids or stories, there’s a baby doll in the couch. I thought that was Nemo laying there unattended at first!

That's allowed - to sleep in "men's wear"? And isn't Nathan there? Jill wearing leggings isn't very modest by their standards. She might be causing Nathan to have thoughts that can't righteously be fulfilled.

The room is already awful, and she hasn’t even started decorating it yet.  WTH would they choose to do the ceiling like that?  Just a plain white ceiling would’ve looked much better IMO.  It’s like she chose 5 or 6 very different styles and threw them all into one room.  Obviously, less isn’t more in Jill’s world.

It all sort of reminds me of a house we had about 20 years ago. Not so much in the decor, per se, but the feeling that everything in there had been chosen because it was on sale, whether or not it had any relationship to anything else. Or even if there was enough of it. One room had a wallpaper border that didn't quite go all the way around the room. There was a hook in the ceiling in that corner; obviously someone had simply hung a plant there to disguise the gap. All the curtains left behind were of the cheap satin variety with little tassels at the hems. We called them "bordello curtains". All the ceilings had swirly patterns sculpted into them, and where there were ceiling light fixtures, the patterns made circles around them, with quantities of glitter embedded within. The upstairs bathroom was the best. Harvest gold bath/shower. mosaic tile on the floor in shades of raspberry and white, and, on the little area that sloped down from the ceiling before meeting the wall, lurid green/blue paper with a coral/seaweed print such as one might use to decorate the back of an aquarium. 

I think Jill might have liked it.

Edited to add, all the pictures of the various shades of "shiplap" going on in Jill's house also reminded me that our place had the whole entrance corridor lined in the "wood" paneling beloved in the 70's that someone mentioned earlier. But ours was extra special with scenes of cowboys and Western paraphernalia "burned" into it. 

We made quite a profit on that house a few years later, with little more than very basic cosmetics.

I noticed that the grandfather clock says 11:30.  Janessa must be exhausted and baby Nemo should be tucked away in his nook.

All of those area rugs have curling edges and toddlers and adults alike will be tripping.

Those fake straw  flowers will be strung with cobwebs and coated in dust.  Gross.

We had a new floor put in last year and it took weeks for the dust to settle.  Jill crazily set out her window drecorations weeks to soon.  Then she covered up her filled to brimming bay window with a bench, which no one can sit on since it's covered in crap.  Then she shoved a couch in front of the bench, completely hiding her coveted bay window.

The edges of the room are lined with useless decor so that the useful seating is in the center of the room.  Hunk's feet are nearly touching the staircase as he reclines!

My parents ( Timothy Noyes & Patricia Noyes) on Thanksgiving with 32 of their 33 grandchildren.  What an INCREDIBLE gift it is to gather with this many like minded people.  

*KJV 1611 Bible as the Final Authority 
*Men the leaders & bread winners
*Men dressed like men with short hair
*Women embrace homemaking
*Ladies dressed modestly as ladies
*Ladies with feminine, long hair
*Children viewed as gifts from God
*Children obedient
*Limited screen time & creativity encouraged
*Wholesome tongues
*Unity & peace 
*Parents loving

A-L-L for the GLORY OF GOD - for HE is a God that LOVES holiness.  ❤️  We lift our hands in praise that His ways DO work and they bring sweet peace to all those that embrace them!  😊

1 Chronicles 16:29 "Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness."

There is so much wrong with that list. Jill doesn't adhere to much of it aside from KJV and clothing. What does she say about Ma Turtleneck's short hair? Her sisters don't have much longer than shoulder length, either. Hell, neither does Jill without those ratty extensions. 🙄

Has she ever voiced an opinion on the way Jesus' styling (at least, the way he is invariably depicted, which she probably believes is accurate)? Does she have any concept at all of how fashions and even clothing itself have changed over the years?

Considering that she still thinks it's the 1980's, I don't think she notices that the rest of her world evolved. She knows fully well the rest of the normal world evolved because she sure is busy judging people for wearing what they do.

Jesus who? They don't care about Jesus. They're all about the fire and brimstone of the Old Testament and, maybe tangentially, the teachings of Paul.

In Jill's world, Jesus is a white guy with blue eyes and light hair.  And King James wrote the Bible.

Seeing that photo, I have to wonder where the 33rd grandchild was.  Perhaps there's a black sheep in the Noyes' family.

One who's been emotionally and mentally stunted and crippled by his parents day in and day out since birth and scared shitless by them, too, plus surveilled to a faretheewell in addition.

And pummelled and called shit as a little guy to such an extent that he's the poor warped creature we've seen. The Rodrigui live a million miles from average even though they aren't chained to the beds like the kids who make the news. And while some people may maintain parts of their brain for their own use after that kind of treatment, a lot won't be able to hold on to much of their own perception or will.....They'll start unconsciously cooperating with the people who want them in the mental prison.
