SpongeBob, why? Why did you set me on fire, SpongeBob? Why didn't you just write your essay?! Stop wasting time!
— SpongeBob's house, "Procrastination"

124 Conch Street[1] 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, turning into a house 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."


First floor

There is a small garage in the back of the house and two windows in the front

Clockwise (left to right at the upper part and right to left at the lower part): Bathroom, bedroom, library, roof, workout room, stairs, kitchen, and living room.


Out back of the house, the backyard is closed in by a square of flowers, but in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game (PC version), SpongeBob's backyard has fence 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, a diving helmet-shaped TV, a clock known as a "snail clock" which has a similar appearance to Gary, 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 blue bamboo wallpaper, two fishing hook ornaments, and various pictures framed on the wall.

The kitchen contains a fridge, a stove, a sink, a cupboard, 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.

Second floor

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."

There is a workout room, featuring a stuffed animal barbell and other light objects that are heavy for SpongeBob, as seen in "Help Wanted," "MuscleBob BuffPants," "The Great Snail Race," "Bummer Vacation," "No Nose Knows," "A Pal for Gary," "The Way of the Sponge," and "Sharks vs. Pods."

Third floor

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.

There is also an escape hatch to the grassy roof of the house, which is seen in "Jellyfish Jam," "Something Smells," "That Sinking Feeling," "Love That Squid," and "Gary's New Toy." This terrace is hidden by the leaves atop the pineapple.

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 green crown of the pineapple.

Pineapple-pocalypse! 🍍💥 Every Time SpongeBob's Pineapple House Was Destroyed


SpongeBob's house being sentient in the episode "Truth or Square"

Just like Squidward's house, SpongeBob's house has shown sentience on a few occasions.

  • "Procrastination" - SpongeBob's house can be seen on fire during SpongeBob's dream. It asks why it was set on fire, before then telling SpongeBob to stop wasting time and actually do his essay. In this appearance, the door simulates a mouth, while the upper window represents an eye (although the first floor window is not used as an eye).
  • "Ghost Host" - The Flying Dutchman possesses SpongeBob's house in order to scare SpongeBob. Its appearance in this episode is similar to that of "Procrastination." However, both windows are used as eyes instead of just one window.
  • "Truth or Square" - SpongeBob's house can be seen sentient in the "Rubber Hose Rag" song in Patchy the Pirate's World of Rare and Rejected SpongeBob Clips. It grows arms and legs to help SpongeBob go to the sentient Krusty Krab. This iteration of SpongeBob's house has the ability to grow arms and legs, a door mouth, and it has both windows for eyes (unlike in "Procrastination").
  • "Unreal Estate" - SpongeBob's house can be seen sentient during SpongeBob's flashbacks. It can be seen going down the slide with SpongeBob (crushing him in the process), taking photos in a photo booth, and playing pillow fight with SpongeBob. Although it has limbs like in "Truth or Square," this iteration of his house has no facial features.
  • The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run - When SpongeBob finds out that Gary went missing, the house becomes sentient and shouts his name. Its appearance here has no facial features besides the giant mouth.
