Perhaps not quite the home protection plan the sellers had in mind ...

One of the homes for sale in Silver Spring, MD that I showed this past weekend came with a Home Protection Plan. That's nothing unusual in the Silver Spring area - it offers some peace of mind for the buyer and, if the appropriate coverage is selected, for the seller as well.

However, something tells me that this is not the kind of Home Protection Plan the sellers of this Silver Spring home had in mind ..

Spider "protecting" Silver Spring Home


I could imagine though that it does its job quite well.. considering that it was perfectly situated in front of a bedroom window..

P.S.: Shown in somewhat smaller than actual size.

That 8 legged "resident" found an entertaining spot to set up shop!  I've been noticing a bumper crop of spiders this year.

Hi Myrl, that thing was huge! I can't remember having seen one as big around here before .. it appeared to have taken the position of a guard. Perfect room for a teenager perhaps :-)

Well, I can see it keeping away some people for sure.  That is a big spider.

Hi Andrea. I am sure this was not what that Home Protection Plan covered. That critter would just about scare anyone out of their wits.

Hi William, one of those would be me :-) I admired it for about 2 seconds and from as far away as possible..

Hi Jerry, I'm wondering if a call to Animal Control would be included? According to my husband it was "just" a very, very large house spider .. did it get its name because of its size?

Andrea, nice observation, it would certainly stop me from going any further than that!  :-)
