At the moment, with my office closed and SEPTA constraining my mobility, I am sitting at my dining room table, and staring at a basket of laundry to be folded, a couch with a lump of blanket containing a needy chihuahua, and a fleece robe — on a different couch — enveloping an overweight cat unclear on why he isn’t being fed. There are dishes to be done and windows rattling from the wind. Inside my apartment, it is not AMAZING. It is merely home. And it can get a little…close.

But there are homes that would make being stuck inside feel like an adventure, even with household tasks to do and animals that require attention. So here, for your reading pleasure, are 10 such homes.
