124 Conch Street is the address of the pineapple house where SpongeBob SquarePants lives with his pet snail Gary and his pet scallop Shelley. The house is three stories high and fully furnished. It first appears in the pilot episode "Help Wanted."
The pineapple originates from land, when it fell off of a ship navigating above the sea, as seen in the TV movie "Truth or Square."
Interior and exterior
There is a garage in the back of the house and two windows in the front. The garage along with the backside of SpongeBob's house is first seen in the episode "Reef Blower." Out back of the house, the backyard is closed in by a square of flowers, much like the ones seen in the sky.
It also has an outdoor tap where a hose can be attached, as seen in "Unreal Estate."
There is a small garage in the back of the house and two windows in the front.
Out back of the house, the backyard is closed in by a square of flowers, but in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game (PS2/PC), SpongeBob's backyard has boards instead. On the first floor, the 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 armchair 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 "shellphone." 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. The living room features bamboo wallpaper, two fishing hook ornaments, and various pictures framed on the wall.
The kitchen contains a fridge, a stove, a sink, a cupboard, and a table, and other typical kitchen tools. Gary's food bowl can also be found here, though sometimes it is seen in SpongeBob's bedroom. A green staircase is located outside of the kitchen.
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 contains 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 Memories of T.S. Halibut, Cooking Without Salt, and Head Shrinking for Beginners!, as well as various comic books and SpongeBob's work 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, first seen in "Boating School."
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, and has red bamboo wallpaper on the right side and blue metal wallpaper on the left. The left side also contains a porthole window from which the inside of Squidward Tentacles' house can be seen.
In the middle, there is a bed that contains three white mattresses, bamboo sticks used to hold them together, a white pillow, and a green buoy with dark green rings. Above his bed is a diving board connected to a ladder, which appears to be used to jump from one room to another to put on his clothes, as seen in "Help Wanted."
Objects in his room include a foghorn that serves as an alarm clock, which sits atop a barrel, a food bowl from which his pet snail Gary eats, piles of newspaper near the bowl for Gary to sleep on, a toy treasure chest, a scallop that hangs in a birdcage, and a giant calendar.
There is also a closet in the room, in which SpongeBob stores his pants.
The season 5 episode "Night Light" shows that there is another bathroom attached to the bedroom.
As seen in Battle for Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob's bedroom is on the first floor as SpongeBob's house appears to only have one floor in that video game.
SpongeBob's third floor contains an escape hatch to the roof. Most of the time, SpongeBob climbs onto his roof to avoid various types of 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.

There is a game on TLC.com in which players have to match coupons to the correct item and one of the coupons has the pineapple house on it.
In the episode "Help Wanted," when the first time SpongeBob's house was seen, there is only one window in the front. This was a feature in some of the other early episodes, such as "Jellyfishing" and "Boating School," but after 1999, it is almost always depicted with multiple windows on the front.
Sometimes, the garage at the back of SpongeBob's house is directly in the center, and sometimes, more off to the side. Sometimes, there's a back door in the center.
His house is sometimes shown as an actual pineapple and other times, it appears to be made of wood.
When one compares the outside and inside of SpongeBob's house, his house looks a lot bigger on the inside.
In the episodes "Help Wanted," "Pickles," "Employee of the Month," "One Krabs Trash," and "Best Day Ever," SpongeBob's bed is placed on the right side of his room, but in other episodes, his bed is on the left side.
If a straw is stuck in the side in the house, one could use it to drink the pineapple juice from it. This is demonstrated by the nematodes in the episode "Home Sweet Pineapple."
In the episode "Boating School," SpongeBob's library is located right where the staircase should be. Yet, in later episodes, the true passageway to SpongeBob's library is unknown though many instances show that it is located just before the stairs, supposedly if SpongeBob has a hallway connecting the stairs and the library.
In the episode "Suds," SpongeBob's house is frozen because he left his refrigerator open for too long.
