and his pet Gary the Snail
live in a pineapple house located at 124 Conch Street
(this is the address shown on SpongeBob's license
). The house is three stories high and fully furnished. The pineapple itself originates from land, when it fell off of a ship navigating above the sea.
Interior and Exterior
There is a garage in the back of the house and two windows in the front. The garage can first be seen in the early short "Reef Blower" and the episode "Naughty Nautical Neighbors," although it was more recently seen in "Have You Seen This Snail?" when Gary left the house through it. It can also be seen in newer episodes of the show such as "The Gift of Gum". Out back of the house, the backyard is closed in by a square of flowers, much like the ones seen in the sky.
On the first floor, his house features a living room, coat closet, a room with a fireplace, and a kitchen. The living room features an inflatable sofa and diving helmet TV. SpongeBob spends a lot of time here. There is a small table with a phone shaped like a conch shell, called a "shell-phone". One of the corners in the living room contains his desk.
There's two fishing hook ornaments (one regular and one shaped like a fish) on the bamboo wallpaper. In addition, pictures of friends, family, and his favorite superheros are on the wall along with a porthole window. He also has a bookshelf. The kitchen contains a fridge, a stove, sink, a cupboard, and a table, and other typical kitchen tools. Gary's food bowl can also be found here. A green staircase is located outside of the kitchen.
SpongeBob's bathroom, a long hallway, and the bottom of his library/study are on the second floor. Another long hallway, the top of his library/study and SpongeBob's bedroom are on the third floor. The staircase leads up to a long hallway.
The hallway has doors leading to his bedroom and bathroom, as well as an additional staircase that leads to his library. In his bedroom, there is an alarm clock that is a loud foghorn. Above his bed (which has three mattresses) is a diving board.
He has a giant calendar on the wall and a porthole window looking to Squidward's house. From SpongeBob's bedroom, there is another door leading to his library. The library/study, the largest room in the house, there is a chair chained to the ceiling by a fishing hook, as well as a huge pipe organ, and SpongeBob's other closet.
It contains books such as Moby Dick, The Codfather, The Beach, and Silence of the Clams. SpongeBob keeps his comic books in this room too. Somewhere in his house is a room with a basketball hoop. There is also an escape hatch to the grassy roof of the house, that can be first seen in Jellyfish Jam and Something Smells.
There is a small garage in the back of the house and two windows in the front. The garage is first seen in the early episode Reef Blower and the episode Naughty Nautical Neighbors, although it has been more recently seen in Have You Seen This Snail?, where Gary leaves the house through it. It can also be seen in other episodes such as The Gift of Gum and Krabby Road.
Out back of the house, the backyard is closed in by a square of flowers, much like the ones seen in the sky. But in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (Video Game) (PS2/PC), SpongeBob's backyard had instead boards, not flowers. On the first floor, his house features a living room, coat closet, trophy closet, kitchen, laundry room and a kitchen pantry. The living room features an inflatable sofa, a regular chair with a life ring as a seat, and a diving helmet-shaped TV, and a small table with a phone shaped like a conch shell, called a "shell-phone".
There are decorations such as a fishing lure above the sofa, a photo of Gary near the kitchen door, and on the left a fishing hook wall ornament, above a small table. On the small table is a potted coral plant. SpongeBob spends a lot of time here. The living room features bamboo wallpaper, two fishing hook ornaments and various pictures framed on the wall. The kitchen contains a window, a fridge, a stove, sink, a cupboard, a table, and other typical kitchen tools. Gary's food bowl can also be found here. In Hooky, Krabs can see anything but do it yourself.
There is a set of stairs on the left that twists around the home and stops at a safe door behind the chute entrance to the second floor. In some episodes, there is a hallway behind the door.
SpongeBob's bathroom is found on the second floor. The hallway contains doors leading to his library, bathroom, and gallery, as well as an additional staircase that leads to his bedroom.
His bathroom contain a square-shaped toilet, a shower/bathtub, a sink, wringer, etc. as well as a porthole window that looks out onto Conch Street. His bathtub is decorated with a bamboo curtain.
The library is the largest room in the house, and occupies both the second and third stories. It contains books such as Moby Dick, The Codfather, and Silence of the Clams, as well as various comic books and SpongeBob's diary. The library also contains a reading chair chained to the ceiling by a fishing hook, a huge pipe organ, a fireplace, a porthole window, and a spare closet. There is also an entrance chute coming from SpongeBob's room, seen in Boating School and A Pal for Gary.
There is a workout room, featuring teddy bears and other light objects (that are heavy for SpongeBob), as seen in Help Wanted, MuscleBob BuffPants, Bummer Vacation, No Nose Knows, and The Way Of The Sponge.
The staircase to the third floor is also green-colored, and is found next to the library. SpongeBob's bedroom is found on the third floor, along with a hallway. SpongeBob's bedroom features a foghorn that serves as an alarm clock, and a diving board above his bed (which has three mattresses). The bedroom also contains a porthole window from which the inside of Squidward's House can be seen. The fifth season episode "Night Light" shows that there is another bathroom attached to the bedroom.
There is also an escape hatch to the grassy roof of the house, which is seen in Jellyfish Jam, Something Smells, That Sinking Feeling, and Love That Squid. This terrace is hidden by the leaves atop the pineapple. His pineapple came from a boat in Truth or Square.
As seen in Battle for Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob's bedroom is on the first floor (but then, he appears to only have one floor).
SpongeBob's third floor contains an escape hatch to the roof. Most of the time, SpongeBob climbs onto his roof to avoid danger, although he also runs up his wall to the roof in "Best Day Ever" where Gary is revealed to be at the top of. The roof contains one unfurnished room with no ceiling, and the wall is made out of the crown of the pineapple. Characters commonly climbed to the roof in the first 4 seasons, but it has barely ever been seen since.
