The sawmill is usually better about QC and finding the unprocessed timber prior to the completion of construction and sale of the house.

Usually.

Spiral stairs: the arch-nemesis of queen and king-size mattresses.

I can't tell which half of which decade they were going for with the overall theme.

There's nothing better in an Illinois winter than several holes in the wall roughly sized for branches in their current state.

I had a roommate who decided the house must have just been built around her bed after spending two hours trying to get it down the stairs. I suspect it was lifted in through the side before the wall was put in.

It's one of those all natural St. Andrews Crosses.

Nothing to see here; it's a rendering error for that level. We just need to re-init the build process and push a patch. Breaks immersion, but not game-breaking as it doesn't block any quests. Unless of course you happen to spawn behind it, in which case you'll need to reload your last save. Can't believe QA didn't catch this one on first pass.

/The Kitchen level has an awesome hidden quest--interact with the little horse sculpture by the front door to get it

I'm assuming a vacuum appears so you can get the crumbs out of that table couch.

It clearly doesn't to thru the walls/roof and is for the cats.  Weird to leave it in a listing photo, tho.  Take the half hour to move it to the car hole which wasn't even photographed.

It's a complete architectural nightmare. I suppose the price for that much space is very reasonable in many parts of the country but, really, what the living hell...

That place was a monkey home. Better hope it's not haunted. Pray to God it's not haunted.

Did you see the staircase? If you make it up all those curvy steps without breaking your neck, the tree ain't gonna be a problem.

Tree needs a rope swing. Preferably swinging in the direction of the nearby (hopefully open) window.

For comparison there are ugly 2BR HOA townhomes nearby asking the same price.

But the 3BR full-brick federalist for $850K with no in-house trees seems like a much better deal.

/historic district of Naperville wouldn't be my ideal location, but it's a very long way from the bottom of the list

That's a nice house, but way overpriced even for the area.

New owner can also expect a bug bump to the property taxes

I'm more interested in the door behind the tree, and whether or not it goes into John Malkovich's head.

Not spiral stairs, but the door layout here made for a tight fit for the queen mattress and the box spring was a no-go.
Pro-Tip: they make "split queen" box springs. Those fit up stairs easy. After a couple of years, I screwed plywood over the bottom side for better stability and to keep the cats out of them.

/No big loss, that box spring was EOL anyways.

You'd think for that price, the agent would know how to spell chandelier.

Clever of them to put it in the bedroom, then.  That's where I typically exercise my sloth.

My cats would lose their shiat over that. That would be their room.

The first thought that popped into my head was that they had a lizard of some sort but I guess it could be for a cat or other smallish creature. It's a beautiful home though, and it looks very clean.
