Paint Your House and Live Mortgage Free

Okay, so there is a bit more to it than just painting your house. Adzookie wants to turn your home into a full-blown billboard. Here is the basic info taken from their web site,   

-If your house meets their criteria they will paint your entire house, turning it into a billboard. 

- They will pay your mortgage for as long as the home remains painted

-Painting will take 3-5 days

-The house must remain painted for at least three months, but the contract can be extended up to a year.

-If you decide to cancel the contract, or if Adzookie cancels the agreement with you, they will repaint the house and bring it back to its original color.


Is this a horrible idea or is it absolutely brilliant?  A few of us around here are undecided. Then again, we don't have to live next door to one of these things...we hope.

I enjoy living in an older neighborhood where there aren't restrictions on how you paint your house or treat your lawn, decor etc. This would be a little too much though.
