An online photo of a Cannon Beach house for sale caught Phil Jones’ attention. The image wasn’t of a sweeping ocean view from the hilltop location or the towering brick-faced fireplace in the living room.

Jones, an attorney who often looks at online real estate listings, couldn’t take his eyes off the misshapen kitchen appliances.

The microwave and range looked wide enough to park a car in them, he joked. The camera also stretched out the dishwasher and made doorways appear larger than their standard size.

“Suddenly a small kitchen looks like the kitchen in the White House,” said Jones.
