Sry, its all lies.

So sorry kids, but no I do not have pictures of the interior of the house used for the cut scenes in Roseanne.

This is such a funny subject, because nothing set-wise on this show makes any sense what so ever.  At all.  Nada.

I have friends that have been to the actual house used for the cut scenes and literally thats ALL they had to do with the show.  They used the same pictures over and over at different speeds at different angles for pretty much all 9 seasons.  The house now has different windows and doors – and from what I’ve gathered its still on the market.

The house doesn’t match the set in any way, I think in previous discussions on other posts we’ve concluded that the set design (especially with the upstairs!) has so many structural flaws theres no way it could actually fit with the house at 619 S Runnymeade in Evansville, IN.  The upstairs doesn’t even maintain consistency from season to season, there’s no way it could do so structurally.

Which brings us to the core of the point at hand:  THE SHOW ISN’T EFFING REAL!  I’m sorry to shatter the illusion but the Conners were a family created by a writer.  They never lived in that house, I mean shit people – BECK WAS PLAYED BY TWO SEPARATE ACTRESSES!!!  It’s television, I heard that when we weren’t looking they used the same set for Family Matters.

About the actual house, this is what one of my readers had to say in a previous blog:

“The problem is the front door. It doesn’t fit the house layout. The door is on the right corner on the outside shots and on the inside shots the door is in the middle. >I was at the actual house today (no one lives there) and the floor plan inside the house is not the same as on the show. It’s not even close. The stairs in the real house are straight ahead as you walk into the house and the living room is to the left.”

He also said “The inside is not the same layout on the show. The picture window is were the living room is and about 10 feet back is a wall parallel with the front of the house. To the right is another section that could be a second small living room but it is overshadowed by the stairs and then it looks like the kitchen is in the back.”

Unfortunately he couldn’t get pictures of the interior because the house was too dark for him camera to pick up any decent images.  Here’s a link to that blog.

THE SECOND FLOOR.

22 Jun

In a previous and very popular post I reproduced the first floor of the set of Roseanne but the lingering question won’t leave my head – what about the SECOND floor? Every way I’ve looked at it I can’t make any kind of sense out of it.  It simple doesn’t fit together in any way shape or form.  Where does the staircase lead to?  Are the kids rooms opposite each other or parallel?  And WHERE, exactly, do the doors in DJ’s rooms lead to?

Roseanne House pt 2

Today I discovered Google Sketch Up, and guess what I did with it.

Roseanne Conner's Floor Plan

Roseanne Conner

That’s right folks.  A 3D RENDER of the Conner Family’s floor plan.  Here’s the detailed floorplan and it’s correct as far as I’ve been able to tell from watching every single episode an hour a day every morning.  From here you can see the *secret* hallway behind the pantry in the kitchen.

Roseanne's Living Room

Roseanne

Here’s the overview of the living room looking into the kitchen.  You can see the default Google man that looks surprisingly like little David Healy by Dan’s chair.  I even managed to find a textile pattern for their couch that’s eerilly similar to the actual set couch!

Here we have the kitchen as seen from the door to the basement.

Here’s the bathroom.  “Is this the sink am I shrinking?!?!”

Once I can figure out how to upload files onto wordpress I’ll upload the sketchup image so you can all play in it.

Dan and Roseanne Conner’s Floor Plan – updated

7 Nov

lookalikeroseanne16496roseanneI guess from many of my posts you would think that I’m obsessed with Roseanne.  And yes, that may be a little bit true.  Roseanne is the one show that after several decades of being on television I can still sit down and watch no matter what time of day or season.

There’s one thing however that’s always bugged me about the show – the house’s floor plan.  Now I’m not an architect, engineer, draftsman or person of any real education concerning blue prints, etc but I’ve always been fascinated by floor plans.  When I was a kid my dad would draw house plans for people and I’d sit on the floor next to him and draw floor plans for the loft my Ken Doll and his boyfriend from North Korea that he met on the internet would move into when gay marriage was legalized…

Yeah as a kid I was totally gay.  GAY GAY GAY.  I was so gay that at about 2 years old at my cousin’s wedding I threw a fit because I wanted a wedding dress like she had so my dad had to put me in one of his big t-shirts so I’d shut up.  Someday if I can find pictures of it I’ll post them, I know I’ve seen them somewhere.

Anyway, when I was growing up I used to watch Roseanne all the time, it made me feel normal to see how abnormally they functioned I guess.  During my parents fights, which they had very frequently I would pretend that we were the Conners because they seemed a lot happier.

WOW tragic, huh!  Dear god that brick needs to go right back in the wall, f’real.

Still after like 20 years of watching the show the floor plan bugged me because I couldn’t figure it out.  Everything made sense to me except the master bedroom/master bath configuration that never seemed to fit right with me.  I’ve looked online several times for some kind of clue but I could never find a PDF or even a jpeg of the floor plan so it continued to haunt me.

Until three days ago.  I spotted it while watching the show, the missing link in the house.  The part I never understood was the doors actually, the doors they walk through to reach the bedroom or bathroom from the kitchen didn’t match the ones going from either room into the kitchen, they seemed switched.  Three days ago however I noticed A HALLWAY.  Yes that’s right.

WOOT.

I doubt many of you are as excited about this as I am but it ended a question that’s lingered in my head for a long time.  I’m a simple guy that takes simple pleasures and this is one that has seemed to make my life a little more complete for some reason.

I have this blogging censor that keeps me from writing stuff that I don’t think anyone will give a shit about like Dan and Roseanne Conner’s Floor Plan but this time I said to myself “no, just go ahead and hit that ‘publish’ button.  SOMEONE out there has to be wondering about the same thing so even if nobody else gets it, someone will.”

So here it is, the Conner Family’s Floor Plan.
