The Most Ingenious House Ever…

September 10, 2010

Remember the post where I pleaded with you that if you were building a house, to please, please, please add a slide from your first floor to your basement? Click here if this has slipped from your memory.

Well, this family delivered and delivered big-time!

This amazing house is on a lake outside of St. Louis, Missouri.

Isn’t this a stellar house?  And it looks out on this:

It makes me want to dive right in.

But that’s not even the best part.

I need you to sit down and prepare yourself.  Deep breaths.  Because this is killer.  Ready?

Because you need to open the trap door…

And voila!  You are in the basement.  Have you recovered yet?

Isn’t this the face of sheer happiness?

Wait, make that two faces of sheer happiness.

This slide was part of the original build of this house.  I understand it took some pleading to get the slide company to sell the slide for indoor use.

    I’ve only ever heard of one other house with an indoor slide – what a fantastic idea!
