What Houzz contributors are saying:

I love this example of individualization, because it looks like a child in a giant washing machine. Architecture is almost always best viewed through the eyes of a child's imagination.

5. Slide Down, Climb Up and Tee OffWhile this home's pirate ship in the bedroom was given top billing in our Houzz Tour, the basement probably deserved a separate tour of its own — starting on the first floor of the house, where a spiral tube slide provides an adventurous way to descend underground. Builder Steve Kuhl describes the slide as "severe tubular craziness."
Samantha Schoech added this to 10 of the Quirkiest, Coolest Rooms on Houzz
This whole house is filled with whimsy, but my favorite touch is the slide that leads to the basement. I'm sure it makes doing laundry a lot more fun.
Rather than serving as a sculpture or major design statement, some slides are surprises hidden in the walls. The basement rec-room fun begins with the trip down a level in this Minnesota home. This one's entry point is tucked away in a first-floor closet.

This would be my kids' slide in the pirate ship because when somebody calls me for dinner when my kids are in the pirate ship. My kids could slide down this slide and it leads the kids out of their bedroom. This would be a great pirate ship slide.

Slippery slide or tunnel could be used between levels in coast home for kids (may need extra support as no doubt adults will want to give it a try, Couls also be used for fun into pool, garden etc. Special care needs to be taken of gradient to ensure decent is not too fast/dangerous
