From Buffy to Breaking Bad, Sherlock to Stranger Things, Here are 8 Floor Plans from Cult TV Shows

Floor plans of favourite television shows tell an interesting story, offering the viewer an extra dimension of a world they are already familiar with. A new series of poster-ready plans from Homes.com continues this with some of the most followed television shows both old and new—featuring Gilmore Girls, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, Mr Robot, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Sherlock and Stranger Things, there's something in this set for TV viewers of all tastes.

1. Gilmore Girls

Where you lead, I will follow... whether you’re Team Jess, Team Logan or Team Paul Anka, this familiar Stars Hollow house serves as a spatial refresher just in time for the revival. The plan is detailed to the point where you can see what can only be takeout plates on the dinner table.

2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Even teenagers busy fighting the undead need a roof over their head, and it looks a bit like this. While Buffy’s home is a real house in Torrance, California, the vampires of Sunnydale preferred a less humble mansion, designed by none other than Frank Lloyd Wright.

3. Arrested Development

Ah, the model home. Slowly falling apart with each episode, it was detailed with the handprints of the aspiring "Blue Man" Tobias, had a suitably secret room for family secrets, and the perfect bannister for Mrs. Featherbottom entrances. Not shown here though is the ultimate party hangout: George Bluth and his hot tub in the attic.

4. Breaking Bad

Many would credit Breaking Bad with heralding in the “golden age of television”—and here’s the house where it all began. Although you can’t see it in plan, it’s easy to imagine the pizza on the roof, hovering somewhere above the garage door.

5. Mr Robot

The interiors of Mr Robot have not gone unnoticed for their powerful stage setting. One of the most puzzling questions viewers were left with was what exactly was in Elliot’s apartment? Can it be seen in this plan?

6. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Where do all the other doors in Charlie and Frank’s crowded apartment lead to? Unfortunately this plan doesn’t tell us either, though we can see the pooped-in sofa bed where the duo sleep “ass to ass.”

7. Sherlock

Taking working from home (or should we say Holme?) to the extreme is Sherlock Holmes at the legendary 221B Baker Street. One is immediately drawn to the living room rendered in red, where Sherlock and John’s iconic chairs face each other, with Sherlock’s Le Corbusier Grand Confort LC3 now in a curious green.

8. Stranger Things

There are few times in the show when the Byers’ household actually looks cosy, yet here the Christmas lights look festive, rather than a means of inter-universal communication to the Upside Down. At least engineers would be happy to know that lighting and telecommunications are a bundle deal.
