A Sustainable Island Retreat Boasts a Secret Slide and Ball Pit4/19

Located in the storage area in the back of the kids' closet, the slide spirals down to the basement. "The contractors deserve the biggest kudos for keeping the slide secret during construction," says DeForest. "They installed the slide very early in the construction schedule, then diligently covered everything up and kept it off limits as a ‘mechanical space’ whenever the clients were on-site."
