This is how I get to work every morning



Mary found this unusual feature. All I have to say is: don't let my kids see this. Or my husband. Or, for that matter, me. Man, that's awesome! But it needs a pool at the bottom. And a bouncy castle on top. Or maybe I need to cut back a little on the caffeine.

Personally I'm thinking they half a**ed it. If I bought that place (and the slide is great enough for that consideration) I would finish it off by making the deck into an awesome fort.

It needs a little trampoline at the end of the slide so you could front-flip right through the open window of your car every morning. Talk about efficiency!!

I want it too!! And we are building a deck this summer, maybe dreams really DO come true!

I'm with Jessie on the half-assing. They have that perfect random doorwall up onto the deck roof. Why, I ask you, did they not start the slide there?

Slackers.

Maybe they did, Meghan. And the reason they’re selling is that there was a horrible accident due to starting out too high, so now they need to move on and forget their tragedy.

Or something.

Is there only one entrance? Seriously? At the top of the slide?

The slide DOES have a pool at it's bottom. Note the low angle of the slide and the unlevel angle of the seat at the bottom. A pool of dirty water has collected where the slope of the slide meet the seat.

Thank you for reminding me of this childhood pet peeve: Poorly installed slides. Not only does the lower angle mean a slow (or halting) slide, but water collects at the bottom for a wet-bottom finish.

I'd refuse this house on the wet-bottom finish alone.

Whoa. Is it sad that all I can think about is, "How could I get my coffee down the slide without spilling it?"

There are only two possible scenarios here:

1)The slide does in fact terminate into a swimming pool but the water is so horribly fetid and brown that the agent cropped the photo and declined to mention the pool in the listing

2)That slide is actually some kind of human remains conveyor belt for processing all the victims

à la "Nothing But Trouble

The whole house needs replacing by a bouncy castle

Chad Schofield said...

I want one!!

Linnee said...

Because it can't be said often enough, I love this blog!

And now I have to find a way to work "wet-bottom finish" into a conversation...

The only thing better than a deck slide is a sliding glass door to nowhere. Sign me up!

Brandy said...

AWESOME!! Do want!!

I'd buy that house, and build on the other half! Seriously, imagine doubling it, and the slide coming down the middle of the house.

Yeah, it needs to come down from the upper story into a pool, like in "The Legend of Billie Jean"!!

Or maybe the slide ends in the lake? That might be kewl too! It's Washington, no alligators climbing up!

Amy said...

Why is there a sliding glass door to nowhere on the 2nd story?! Are they trying to create a Winchester Mystery House on the East Coast?! :-)

I always wanted a house with a slide coming off the deck. I was so disappointed when my parents neglected to add one to the blueprints when they got their deck remodeled.

stop! i can't breathe!

I always wanted a slide from my deck but my parents turned down the idea when the daredevil neighbor jumped off the side and into the hammock.

Quick, Robin, too the Batmobile!
