a touch of whimsy -- homes with slides!

homes with secret doors.

nothing could get better than that, right?

well, maybe not. how about homes...with slides??

the older half of the house i grew up in had an extensive laundry chute system that connected to several bedroom drop locations and even one in the hallway. i would fantasize about popping open the 1 ft. x 1 ft. chute doors and shimmying in myself, sliding down in complete darkness (picking up the occasional lost sock) and surprising my mother in the laundry room.

but, of course, before i ever got up the nerve, i grew too large to fit into the chute.

but now, seeing these inspirational homes with slides, i can still fulfill my childhood dream of having a slide in my house!

A few years ago, they developed the land near my neighborhood into luxury mansions. My parents and I went to the opening houses just for fun, and I remember one house had a spiral slide from the kids' rooms on the 3rd floor down to the movie theater in the basement. Those were some of the best 15 seconds of my childhood.

A secret room for sure. Of course it would have to have a hidden door behind a bookcase, too. Love the slides by the way!

Oh this made me smile! Both the bold concept and the fact that they are completely fresh new photos to me.

I'm still dreaming of a room-size closet and a cozy window seat.

I already have one in my house. You just need a hose and a slip and slide.
