At the center of the room is a drywall construction that resembles a child’s playhouse. one can see a view of the interior through the top half of the Dutch door. The inside of the door is papered with color photocopies of a bathtub murder.

On the walls are illustrations fromĀ Popular Mechanics, which show a father teaching his son house to build something. Juxtaposed with this image is a photograph of a woman smothering a man while she talks on the telephone. White pillows have been stuffed inside both the windows and the chimney of the house.
