What Are Your Home's Most Unusual Quirks?

Pin it button big

After living in the same home after awhile, you begin to get to know its personality. You pick up on whether you've got to wiggle a knob just the right way to get a door to open, you learn which cabinets never stay closed. Homes have quirks, and we're curious about yours.

Older houses seem to have a lot, from creaky floor boards to a certain way you have to wiggle the handle to get the key to turn in a lock, but even newly built homes have their quirks. We're curious about your home's quirkiest elements — the kind of things you'd only know if you live there (or a frequent enough guest).

So what's a weird thing about your home that only those who live there know about? How long did it take you to get to know all your home's quirks? What are some quirks from previous homes that you'll never forget?
