He Passed By A New House And Noticed Something Off. Can You Spot It?

It’s a fact that some stores are designed to make you walk through all of the departments before you are able to exit, and that some buildings like museums make visitors pass through the gift shop in order to leave.

But did you know that some model homes use this principle too? A conversation about this has recently been started, thanks to one photo.


A Reddit user that goes by the username liquidthc posted a photo of a model home in South Carolina to the popular website 3 days ago. The picture is captioned, “They had one job.” The Redditor noticed something strange about the home. Can you figure out what it is? It took us longer than we care to admit!

The issue with the home is…drumroll, please…the driveway doesn’t lead to the garage door! Did you spot this? While some people have seen this and believed it was a major design flaw, there is actually a chance that this was not a mistake, and was intended. As another Reddit user states, “It’s not a problem, it’s almost assuredly a model home in a new neighborhood. The driveway as shown in this picture acts as parking lot for patrons and sales employees and the garage acts as the sales office. Once the neighborhood is sold out they will sell the model and reconfigure the house to the ‘correct’ way.”

Another user explained, “Home builders also like to ‘trap’ clients and will sometimes build doors into the garage where the sales office is as the only entrance accessible to clients and then building fences around the walkways to force people to go through the sales office before going through the front door to tour the home.” Interesting!

What do you think? Was it a mistake or intentional? Have you ever seen a model home configured this way?
