My Petition for Slides to the Basement…

February 23, 2012

Think of this as a political campaign.

(I promise not to use those words again.  Ever. This entire year.)

Except instead of taxes or education, I build my entire campaign platform on one thing:

(drumroll please)

Slides to the Basement.

Seriously, can you think of anything more fun?

I feel this one is particularly elegant.

Not only do you have a great way to send kiddos down the hatch, you can also send all their toys that have accumulated upstairs down with them.  “Watch out Below!”

I have tried and tried to figure out a way to put one in my house, but alas, I’ve decided it will have to wait until a future home.

What do you think?  Would this increase housing values?  Would it sell the house?

Or am I just crazy??

    LOVE IT! I would love to have a slide for the boys to get to the basement. (Ok who am I kidding? I would totally use it too!)

    Awesome idea – all those boxes with holiday decor that needs to be carried up and down stairs – now it just slides…

    Fabulous idea! We need more things like that in life. My kids would like a roller coaster ride to school everyday. Can you imagine?

    I would so buy a house with a slide! Anything to keep one’s house the ‘cool hang out house’ is definitely worth doing! :)

    There is a house for sale in Gull Lake that has a fireman pole from the 3rd floor to the basement – scary, but super fun!

    Now that is something! You’re right – it would freak me out, especially with kids, but WOW!
