This is how these things get started…
“We had restored an old Victorian house before and I just said it would be really cool to create the Munster house. I was just joking to begin with but when Chuck said that would be really cool I just ran with it and here we are.”
From the gargoyles at the gates to the cobwebs in the kitchen this horror-loving couple spent over $400,000 building a 6,000 square foot replica of the house from hit 1960s TV series The Munsters. Sandra Mckee and her husband Charles from Waxahachie, Texas decided to create the mansion after a lifelong love for the show, but it’s not JUST for show – the Mckees live here year-round. Sandra told the Daily Mail that she feels like she has to match the show in every sense but it does have its downside.
“I think we do miss out on a lot of comfort areas in the house. It would sometimes be nice to go into your bedroom and have a regular room. We had a king-size bed but as this didn’t match the show we had to downsize it for a smaller one. The thing is we have to match the show. When people come in they look for things to catch you out on, things that don’t match the show.”
The mansion includes some of the most iconic Munsters features like Grandpa Munster’s dungeon, rotating suit of armour and of course the pet dinosaur under the stairs.
