The Duncans’ Denver Home on “Good Luck Charlie”

Good-Luck-Charlie-house

My daughter Lily is a big fan of the Disney Channel sitcom Good Luck Charlie, about the Duncans, a family of six living in Denver. When it premiered last year, she said, “Mom, you’ve got to see this show. You’ll love their house!” We’ve been watching it together ever since. Lily has been asking me to write a post about it, and since it’s her birthday, this one’s for her!

Big sister Teddy keeps a video diary for baby sister Charlie to watch when she’s older, and she ends each show by saying, “Good luck, Charlie.” (Trivia: The baby’s name was originally going to be Daisy, but execs were worried that a show with a girly name like that in the title would keep boys from watching, so they changed her name to the gender-neutral Charlie.)

This is a TV-show version of a middle-class family home. I’m guessing it would be too expensive for most middle-class families in Denver to afford in real life. I would love to know where the real house is, but I haven’t been able to track it down. If anyone has any info about it, let me know!

When the series started last year, the sets were pretty colorful…

But as the show progressed, they amped it up even more, bringing in a lighter, brighter sofa, a patterned area rug, a striped chair, and more fun details. Even the stairs appear to have been repainted to pop more on the screen:

The show was created because the Disney Channel wanted to have one that features a “regular family.” You know, one where the kids weren’t pop stars or wizards. The intention was also to make it appeal to parents as much as kids.

The sitting room area behind the living room features a big stone fireplace:

It’s elevated up a step from the rest of the set. Leigh Allyn Baker, who plays Amy Duncan, cracks me up:


The kitchen is pretty colorful, too. Check out the painted cabinets and those bright blue chairs:

I love how the chalkboard fridge always has different things written on it, depending on what’s happening in the episode:

The Basement has a sliding barn door that separates the hang-out area from the laundry room (to the right) and Teddy’s bedroom (to the left):

The Production Designer for the series is Glenda Rovello and the Set Decorator is Peter M. Gurski, both of whom worked on the sets for “Will & Grace.” Looks like they really had fun with this one!

Teddy’s room features a bed on a raised platform, and now my daughter says she wants one just like it:

Baby Charlie sleeps in Teddy’s old bedroom upstairs. Here she is with her “big-girl bed,” which she didn’t like one bit:

Teddy records one of her video diaries for her sister:

Has anyone else been watching this show with (or without) their kids? :-)

      No need to be embarrassed, VeggieGirl; this program looks as if it would be loads of fun to watch.

      The set decoration reminds me of what you would see in some of Disney’s animation films. Very colorful, indeed.

  1. says

    I’ve not ever seen this disney show, but the house looks like the one used for the Reba show…

    • Ellie says

      Mia, I totally agree! Though they are different houses, whenever Good Luck Charlie shows an exterior shot, it makes me think of the house on Reba.

      • syanik says

        I was going to say the same thing! The layout of the kitchen and living room are very very similar!

  2. says

    I accidently came across a show called “Ruby and the Rockits” and watched it because of the sets. The house was so fantastic….I wasn’t watching any of the action…I was just watching the sets. This show is not on any more. And I could only stomach a couple of episodes and only for the sets. I used to always enjoy the sets on Friends.

  3. says

    The bedroom with the raised platform for the bed looks a lot like one that was used in another show when I was at school. Possibly Drake & Josh? I’m not sure, but they might be recycling that set.

    • Alison says

      Didn’t Clarissa from “Clarissa Explains It All” have a bed on a raised platform?

      I got so excited one day when watching this show because they had a Baby Bjorn hanging on the coat rack with a cover on it that is from the same pattern that I had 2 baby carriers made out of, LOL! It’s Alexander Henry’s “Kleo” and I love it!

  4. says

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY LILY! Also, as cool as that house is, there’s no way they’d be able to afford it. My favorite though is Friends because there is no way they’d get to do what they do and live where they live in Manhattan … LOL

  5. says

    We watch this show, too. I love the color in the house: it is happy! Happy Birthday, Lily! Today is my birthday, too 😀 Thanks for this post, Julia. I probably enjoyed it as much as Lily.

    (((hugs))),

  6. Amy P says

    {love your blog, btw – i think this is my first comment} I’ve been watching this show with my kids over the past week or two, adore the Craftsman style homes and was just thinking on Saturday that you should feature it. I was delighted to see the home on your blog this morning! Thanks & keep up the good work!!

  7. Sunny says

    Happy Birthday, Lily!

    My kids (and I) enjoy this show too!

    Have you noticed that they have some *buggy* accessories? I think it’s a nod to the Dad’s job–he’s an exterminator. There is an insect framed print, and a pillow on the couch covered in bugs!

    I still wonder what the casting people were thinking when they cast a dark haired/eyed kid into this very blonde family? Odd…

    Thanks for the post 😉

    • hookedonhouses says

      That’s a good point I forgot to mention. They do have some fun bug artwork and pillows and things around! :-)

    • Heidi says

      I have thought many times that they all look like a real family except Gabe. But maybe that makes it all the more real. You never know where some kids get their features. For instance, my daughter has a mass of curls while we all have straight hair. Who knows!

    • Nettie says

      You know the grandfather they showed in the good luck Charlie movie is dark haired as well so after seeing that it tied everything together for me.

  8. T. says

    Happy birthday to Lily! I love the name Lily, but now that I know her full name is Lily Kate, I love it even more! So sweet.

    We don’t have cable, otherwise I’m sure my daughter would be all over that show. I think the set is fun, but a little too cartoony to be suitable for my own decorating tastes.

    • Fan says

      Cartoony is reality too, check out an episode of House by Novogratz and see how decorate that way. I thought of them when I saw the set even wondering if they did it.

  9. Derek says

    Am I the only one that hates it when the front door on the set looks nothing like the frontdoor on the exterior? Did they think we wouldn’t notice?

    Sorry just had to vent. Love the colorfulness ( is that a word? ). It ,like most of the Disney channel sitcom set, appeal to the childrens hunger for color.

  10. says

    Hello,

    We enjoy watching this show together too! Such a great Disney show. I love that house and all it’s bright colors. Especially the stairs and the gorgeous barn door. My son would love to have his bed on a platform. He also likes the bedroom from Drake & Josh!

    Makes me happy looking at their house and see what has changed.

    Thank you for sharing. What a treat! Claudia

  11. Barbara says

    Like you, I love this show! My son, who will be 10 next week, loves the boys (of course!) It’s a nice old-fashioned family show, and the house is fun to look at. I’m always trying to read what it says on the fridge, and I want a basement just like it!!
    Did you ever do a post on Malcolm in the Middle’s house? That’s an interesting looking house as well. It’s obvious when they show an outside shot of the house that it is not the same house as the interior (much, much smaller looking on the exterior). That might be a fun one to cover.

    Thanks again for this post, and Happy Birthday to Lily!!

    Barbara

  12. Christine says

    I watch this show with my kids! I love the house! I also noticed the “bug” accessories… but failed to make the connection to the dad’s job! (slap on the forehead!)
    The other show I watch with my kids is iCarly… I love their apartment. So fun!
    Thanks for sharing this and A HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lily! :)
    Christine

  13. says

    My nine year old loves this show and I always enjoy their kitchen – especially the chalk board! I love the funky colors it’s a great upbeat feel.
    Have a great day
    Mary

  14. Alecia says

    My girls love this show too. Thanks so much for writing this post. I’ve been in love with the house ever since I saw the first episode with them. I especially love all the “bug” details in the house (pillows, artwork.) Perfect blend of fun and eclectic and traditional.

  15. Jamie says

    You have just made my daughter’s day, too! She is always searching for photos of Teddy’s room so that she can use the design ideas (loves the bed). She will be thrilled with today’s blog! Thank you. I always thoroughly enjoy each and every posting! Keep up the great work.

  16. Farmeress says

    What a gift that you both share this show and… from Lily’s suggestion. These are the memories you will fondly share one day in her adulthood!
    Happy Lily’s Birthday to Both of you.

  17. says

    Happy Birthday to Lily! I haven’t heard of this show, but I like the premise. :) I laughed out loud when you said “you know, where the kids aren’t pop stars or wizards.” Funny! The house is very colorful…definitely the set is meant to appeal to an audience of kids. If they made it look like Frasier’s apartment, the kids wouldn’t watch. Neat feature!! (Loved the Will and Grace sets, btw)

  18. Sara says

    Yeah, the front door doesn’t match. I love the house / set anyways and was excited you featured it. Happy Bday to your daughter!!

    My 3 boys and I love to watch this show.

  19. Millie says

    Have been meaning to suggest this forever….I have always loved the Judging Amy house, and it has always been the main reason I watched that show (in re-runs). Don’t even know if it’s on anymore on any channel, but maybe is on DVD?

  20. says

    I love this show and watch it with my two girls all the time! I really love the decor and wish I could somehow chalkboard my fridge…..:)

    • Meg says

      Use chalkboard contact paper. That would work perfectly.

  21. Janet Turner says

    Yes…the mom is SO funny!!! My daughter loves this show too :)

  22. Nita says

    When is the show on? Sounds like fun. I keep missing that show with Melissa Peterman on the CW about a normal family too. Don’t know that I like all the color, and the rooms are pretty messy, but that’s the norm for real life sometimes.

    • SashaQueen says

      In the show it’s a girls name, but it’s usually a boys name.

    • Baylee Street says

      It’s a nickname for the name Charlotte. I used to know a girl named Charlie but it was short for Charlene. I do consider the name more of a boy’s name if it was spelt Charley.

  23. says

    Happy Birthday Lily! :) I’ll admit to watching a few seconds of this show while flipping through the channels, the little baby Charlie is oh so precious! I remember the mom from Will and Grace. The house is so fun and colorful. I’m obsessed with that archway, and I love the use of color and chalkboards incorporated into the decor, very cool and kid friendly.

  24. Kim says

    Happy Birthday Lily! What a beautiful name. It use to be one of my favorite girl names.

    What a great gift for your daughter. I don’t like Disney Channel or any of the kid channels so I haven’t seen this show. I probably won’t watch it either. I love the house though, it is so gorgeous. Like you said, this family probably wouldn’t be able to afford it in real life. The colors are a lot of fun and if I had them in my house, they would make me feel happy.

    I have watched alot of kid movies for the house. One of them, (which I have mentioned before) is “Matilda”. I love Miss Honey’s big house. Then there’s “Beethoven 1&2″, “Mrs. Doubtfire”, “Casper”, “It takes Two”, and more.

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

  25. Catherine says

    I want that house!!! With regard to the show, I love the ‘make-do’ style of the basement, where nothing is ‘finished’.

    I also would like to see the inside of the house, itself, as opposed to the stage set. Maybe it’ll go on the market! 😉

  26. Erin says

    The layout of the main level reminds me of the layout on Boy meets World and Teddy’s bedroom layout reminds me of the boy’s room in Home Improvement… I wonder if they re-used some of those sets since they were ABC shows???

  27. says

    My four year old LOVES Good Luck Charlie. I am envious of the blackboard. Wish I had one AND a production team to update it everyday! Great house.

  28. Dawn says

    What a cute set!

    Happy Birthday, Lily!

    My birthday is tomorrow. I’m just a “little” older than she is. *cough*

    • hookedonhouses says

      I would say it’s an exaggerated, Disney-show version of how Americans live. And like I said, there aren’t many middle-class families I know who could afford a house like this in real life!

      • HAyley says

        Do you happen to know where this house is (address). I know its in Denver Colorado. My 7 kids always watch this. Recently they asked me if we could see this house in person. My baby girl even watches it!!

  29. says

    Oh! I really love their house setting with lively colors. The baby’s room is cute and the whole house is as typical as their plot. One could really relate…

  30. says

    Well, I don’t have kids yet, but I’ve been watching this show on Netflix! I fell in love with this house too. i love the bright colors and the mix of different styles. So fun! thanks for featuring this one! It totally made my day. =)

  31. says

    Thanks for posting this house!! I’ve been trying to find some good pics to put on my blog. This house is my favorite on tv and I love the show too, even though I am 28 with no kids………..
    I love all the colors and the bug art and pillows. In the hangout I love the eye chart light box. Such a cool house!

  32. says

    awe happy birthday to your sweet daughter. I have to admit, I’ve been eyeing the barn door and the fridge. cleverly done for a kids show. and I ADORE the house from Alvin and the Chipmunks. please please please do one on that!? 😉 LOVE it.

  33. says

    My family LOVES this show and they really LOVE it because I watch it with them, faithfully. I love the mom, she is hysterical. And the house is sooooo cool, we are always pointing out things in the background that we love:)! guilty pleasure for sure! Thanks for the post!

  34. Mercedes says

    Happy bithday to Lily, and thanks for the idea!
    Did anybody see the carpet in the play room (I believe) that is made of denim?
    It`s great, and very originally.
    thanks for share!

    • Heidi says

      Yes, the rug in the living room is made of many different pairs of blue jeans. A pretty easy do it yourself project probably.

  35. denise cochran says

    Isn’t this the house they used for that show for Hogan’s Family, it had Sandy Duncan in it-maybe I am calling it by the wrong title. The living room and kitchen for sure….don’t remember the upstairs at all. Even the outside shot looks like their house.

  36. says

    As Alex said, the bedroom does look like the platform bed in Drake & Josh, but they were a Nickelodeon show. I’ve watched this show a few times with the first grader I babysit – it’s okay. Don’t like the blue chairs, though!

  37. Tara says

    We watch this show a lot in my house as well! My daughter is just about the same age as Charlie…so she loves seeing a show with someone like her! But this show is entertaining to watch and I love the house! My favorite is definitely the chalkboard fridge with the every changing lists! Thanks for posting!

  38. Oly Mom says

    My 9-year old son and I love this show too! We stumbled on it over spring break and can’t get enough. The mom is hilarious!

  39. brittany says

    Thank you so much for writing about this! Just watched this show with my niece and could not get over how much I loved the house! Gave me such great ideas for my house! Do you have any idea where you could get chalk board magnets like that for your fridge? Or any project sites that would show you how to do the platform for the bed?!

  40. BobW says

    The GLC house is awesome and the sets are nice in that they match up to a contemporized look in an elderly home. What really bugs me, though, is that the TV sets come nowhere near matching up to the actual house. The front doors are in different places. The inglenook with the raised floor and fireplace isn’t located under the chimney.

    It’s almost as if the set designer did his/her thing and then sent somebody out to shoot some photos of the front of an “appropriate” house with a tire swing and a bug truck.

    In defense of GLC, this isn’t the first house like this on TV. The Cartwrights’ Ponderosa log house didn’t match it’s interiors either. Archie Bunker’s house. Brady Bunch. The list is long.

  41. Jemma says

    Love it thanks!! im creating their house on sims coz its so amazing!! one thing i dont understand so i was hoping someone could help me out??!!

    The front dooor is red and looks small from the outside, and when you show it from the inside its brown and bigger?! so is that actually the front door?! because on the outside there isnt a lot of rooom to put a huge fireplace inside?!

    Hope that made sence!! thanks xx

    • hookedonhouses says

      That’s because they didn’t worry too much about making the interior sets match the exterior. I guess they didn’t think we’d pay this much attention to them!

    • Michelle says

      Well shoot, I just posted below and was scrolling back up when I noticed this! I’m rebuilding it in the Sims, too, and found the same discrepency.

      The door is red on the outside, but brown on the inside. At least, that’s the way I’m solving it. You’ve also noticed the problem with the fireplace, but the real issue is that the inside shot doesn’t match the outside one at all! If you design your fireplace by the door, the entire roofline (with those awesome windows on the top floor) becomes completely different. I think I might end up moving the fireplace into an area between the kitchen and living room, one square away from the “pass through”. There’s actually a lot of left over real estate there, if you counted windows correctly.

      HTH!

  42. Techmo says

    I wonder what house they use as the exterior of the Duncan house. I know it is number 358 but I don’t know what street it’s on. Any info on the street who be AWESOME! 😀

    • tviano says

      Ok. I’ve been a little too obsessed with the location of the exterior shot of this house. It is a great looking house, so naturally I’ve been trolling the internet looking for the actual location, starting with the only clue of the 358 house number. However, on some exterior shots of the house, the house number painted on the curb is different!!! Of course, I don’t remember what it is now. As soon as I saw it, I jumped on the computer and started searching and have since forgotten. I do remember that it is a three digit number. Next time I see it, I’ll be sure to submit it to this blog. Glad to know I am not alone in this quest.

    • Anthony says

      358 edgewood drive or 358 edgewood street. it’s same

  43. D. says

    Hi, loved this info, u don’t happen to know where they got this sofa, i love it!!!

    • Katy I. says

      I happened onto this blog/post while looking for info on the couch they have in their living room…I also love it and am looking for info on it! The pictures show two different ones, I am interested in the (I think) newer one, that looks turquoise!!!

  44. Heidi says

    I love this show just as much or more than my daughter does! I am decorating my new home and looking to do my mudroom and sunroom in some of these colors. Great pictures!

  45. Erin says

    There is an insect print/picture on the wall in the living room. You can see it well in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th pictures of the house. It kind of has an antique look to it. Does anyone know have any idea where I can purchase a similar print?

  46. billie says

    Does anyone know who makes the large patterned area run in the living room? the one that matches the couch? I have been going crazy trying to find it!

  47. Michelle says

    I love this show! All my kids watch it, it’s a family favorite.

    I came here looking for pictures of the house, and you have not disappointed. One of my favorite pastimes has become building houses in The Sims 3, and I was looking to recreate the house for the game. I was a little disappointed (but not entirely surprised) to fine the exterior shot doesn’t quite match the interior . For instance, that fireplace should be right beside the door (or thereabouts) on the exterior shots, but it’s clearly in the middle of what is probably a great room in the “real” house (the one they use for the view of the house, pictured in the 1st, 2nd and last shots above). In fact, if I put the fireplace where the interior shots suggest it to be, the entire front roofline becomes very different. I’m going to have to do decide how to fix that.

    Nonehteless, a beautiful house and a great set. Thanks for providing what appears to be the only pictures available online! (Almost all the search results lead to this article. LOL)

  48. Fahrezi says

    Man…. i love That Familiy and the house.
    I wish my house can be like the Duncan’s. especially like Teddy’s bed room.
    i bet everyone aggre with me, right? 😀

  49. Patty B. says

    Does anyone know how to go about making the denim jean rug that’s in the basement??? I LOVE that rug and haven’t been able to find much on one except for braided rugs or rag rugs :( I would love to try making one, but a little apprehensive to start it without better pictures.

    • Elizabeth says

      I would also love to make one. Have you had any luck on directions? Someday I might just try and see what happens.

    • Jackie P says

      A little late on this but as I was searching for how to make this rug I stumbled on this site. Any luck on the rug? I think I am going to just “wing” it but I am a little nervous. Let me know if you found anything.

  50. says

    Great photos, thanks. Does anyone know if the picture for the house exterior has been used on any other shows? It looks so familiar. I was thinking old 80s/90s family sitcoms, maybe? Cheers

  51. says

    Cool pictures i wished i could actually see live videos of them like video chatting cause i’m a fan of their shows its funny at some parts

  52. Joy says

    I love watching this show with my daughter and I even **looks at feet** watch it when she’s not at home. I have a couple of questions that I hope someone out there in internet land can answer.
    1) Does anybody know where I could find or how I could make that canister thingy that they have sitting on the counter in the kitchen? It looks like they have glues about six together to create a star like design.
    2) Does anybody know what is around the mirror in Teddy’s room? It looks like old CD cases but I can never get a good enough look.

    This is has got to be one of the cutest sets I’ve seen on a show in a long time.

  53. Enrique says

    I watch this show with my kids all the time, and I’m always drawn to the island bar in the kitchen with the thick wood top. Any ideas where I could find something like that? I love it. I’ve always wished there was a site that catalogued the sets/apparel of shows and let you find where to buy them.

    • Robin says

      Me Too!! I LOVE that Kitchen island!! I shamelessly can’t get enough of the Duncan’s (I’ve been known to watch it when my daughter is busy doing other things). If anyone has any ideas about the kitchen island (or the reclaimed coffee table), I would very much appreciate it. I’m a BIG fan of your blog too, my favorite is your Father of the Bride post!! Now THAT is the house I want someday.

  54. says

    My children are older so I miss out on these new Disney shows, but I use to love to watch Lizzy Mcguire with my children. The house had a large open floor plan with lots of fun furniture and color.

  55. sue m says

    I know they have used the exterior of this house in an older sitcom from the late 80s early 90s I just am having a brain fart to which one.

  56. Diane Swirka says

    This outside of this house always reminds me of the house used in “Poltergiest II: The Other Side”…

  57. LA Plouff says

    I am so sorry for bothering you, but my dad had passed away back in 1999. I am now going thru his stuff and one thing he has is an old Disney Candy Canister. It is blue and has Mickey, Minnie Donald Duck and Pluto on it, but the caption is “Hail” “Hail” The gang is all here! It is sbout 9 CM round and 11 3/4 cm tall. The slip dowe lid has Micky and Minnie on it, and it looks as if it is a different blue. But I do notice that there is no Goofy on the canister (anywhere) at all. I have searched eveywhere to find an equal for this to see if it is important or not. That is why I am contacting you because I have found nothing anywhere. Pehaps you may direct me to the right person who can tell me what this is? I would just hate to destroy it if it is something rare from Disney, or either hard to find. Please let me know where I can go with this? (Be nice). LOL

    Thanks for taking the time.

      Sorry to everyone who has been searching for the bug pillows and artwork and cookie jars and everything else on this set. I don’t have any shopping or source info. If anyone does, fill us in!

    • liza says

      The green one on the gold chair is from the dwellstudio collection for Target, which was on sale for $5 a couple of years ago and got one for my daughters room.

  61. Julie says

    We love this show too!! What I love most about the show is that it shows a ‘family’ again. So many of the shows only depict ‘friends’ and ‘fun all the time’. It’s great to see a family setting with a mom and dad again!!!

  62. liza says

    I watch the show every once in a while and stumbled upon this sight looking for set pictures, I’m looking for the rug to replace our Weinrib I moved into our bedroom. We live in the suburbs of Denver and there are similar houses, but rarely front yards that big, but perfectly. affordable for midlle class families. Enjoyed your post.

  63. Tiffany says

    Julia, I can get lost on your website for hours. I love it. My kids like Good Luck Charlie, in fact some of our friends say my youngest resembles Charlie. Ive watched a couple of times and I told my 10 year old just the other day “I dont like the show because the set bothers me”. LOL. So I perused your pics trying to figure out what bothers me most. I love color so that isn’t it, maybe that there is no flow. As a designer I just would never do a room without more cohesiveness. I’m sure Disney thinks that is what makes it real. I do like Charlie’s purple room though.

    • Charlotte says

      i absoulotley love the show and all the rooms and like the other comment before mine i’m getting the bed just like hers and decorating my room just like hers too.

    “The real exterior is shot from a house in pasadena – I sent you an email saying I know one of the writers… didn’t get a reply – hope this helps.”

    Thanks, PJ! That does help! Very cool that you know one of the writers. My family loves that show. It’s one of the few we can all enjoy together, young and old. :)

      Well, getting close to actual location, but no revelation yet.

      • CA Girl says

        The exterior version of the house is definitely in Pasadena. It is located a few blocks away from a friend of mine. Though I doubt you will be able to find the exact location. It is a private home and I am sure that they want to protect their privacy.

    What a neat website. I’m so glad you have pictures of this particular set – I love it and it’s time to do some painting to finish our basement. (I wish this show had been on when we painted our first floor!) If anyone knows how to get paint samples or information on colors from this set, I’d love to know. I’ve tried to replicate colors from magazines in the past, but find that my success rate is not as high as I’d like. Since painting is a rarity here due to time, etc, I’d really like to start with a palate that I know works so well.
    I’ve also really enjoyed reading the comments. Thanks!

  67. Kristie says

    I watch this show with my daughter, love it! It’s one of the few ‘kid’s shows’ that make me lol! Its great to see the house featured here, it’s a beautiful house. I’d love to have that basement…

    BTW…also loving your website!!!

  68. Krista says

    I think this house exterior was also featured in the movie Space Jam, which I believe took place in Chicago. I loved that house so much! By the way, have you ever thought of featuring Rhoda Morgenstern’s apartment from her series “Rhoda”? Loved that place she shared with Joe!

  69. says

    The Duncans are moving! (Baby#5 is on the way!) is Hope you can do a feature on their new house!! I love this show!

  70. Terry Fay says

    I watch this show with my 13 year old daughter. It really is cute. Love the house and all the bug art. Especially love the spider pillow!

  71. Stephen Rhodes Treadwell says

    My mom’s name’s Charlotte but she doesn’t go by Charlie.

  72. Ann Marie Robinson says

    Love this show! Has anyone been able to track down where the bar height table in the kitchen is from? I have tried to find it on-line, but cannot find where it is sold or manufactured. I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks!

  73. says

    hey can you do an article about the wizards of waverly place house because its always confusing?

  74. Becky says

    Where can I get the large aqua greek key rug in the living room?

  75. says

    My family loves this show! It’s a typical classic family show… And I have always loved how they decorate their house. Thank you for all of the still shots, this is the first time I have found much on their decor. (trust me I’ve searched) This month on my blog I will be featuring how to make a version of their ‘jean rug’! We’ll see how it turns out:)

  76. CassC says

    I watch this show….usually by myself because my sons are a little too young to appreciate it, hehe. *blush* Very cute show. BUT, I do absolutely love this house and I’m saying that’s one of the reasons I watch. 😉

  77. Aimee Warren says

    my daughter loves this show so much. she is 10 years old and loves teddy’s platform bed. by any chance do you know how to make that bed/ find a platform like that?

  78. soon to be mom of 3 says

    I love the pink and green baby bouncer shown in the 1st photo. Does anyone know where I can get that from?

  79. Casey says

    Can u do one on the disne channel show, “jessie?” its a really cool apartment with a movie theater and blown up pictures of them on a wall its really cool!!

  80. jace skaggs says

    Is the house in good luck charlie the same house that’s in the movie hapy gilmor. The one were the lady gets hit in the head with a golf ball & falls out the window.

  81. tracey green says

    It also reminds me of the House from Step By Step,the show from the nineties that came on TGIF

  82. Stacy says

    Hello Julia! Love your site and I am also hooked on the Good Luck Charlie House! It’s such a fun and colorful one that inspires me to make some changes in our home decor. I am curious to find one thing that the Duncan House has in their kitchen. There is a multiple snack container on the island that almost looks like 3 or 4 of those old candy jars with the silver covers meshed into one. Not sure if it’s shown in every episode but I totally love it! Any idea where I could find one? Any way to contact the set decorator and ask? Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Take care! :)

  83. Amber says

    I love watching this show with my tween daughter. The decorating style reminds me a lot of my own. haha. But what I can’t figure out is how they afford a house that awesome and raise six kids on a nurse’s and exterminator’s salary?!

  84. Isabella says

    Julia,
    I noticed you wanted to know where to track this house down…? Well, on Disney Channel, they are just sets. so each room is next to another and they would just film in the room next to it. They don’t actually film at a real house, especially not in Denver (LA!)
    Also, question, how do you know about the Trivia’a? How do you know about what Charlie’s name was supposed to be? And what the title of the show was supposed to be? Where did you find that information? Just out of curiosity.
    -Isabella

    • says

      Yes, they are just sets. My readers were wondering where they took the exterior photos for the house.

      A lot of trivia can be found on the IMDb.com website.

  85. Lucy says

    You’re not on your own. I love this house. I get such inspiration from it. It’s looks so happy and homely.
    The show is really funny too. The mum is hilarious, and Charlie is too cute for words.

  86. morgan says

    i love good luck charlie i am 10 and i have a game called the sims 3 you can create people and make houses for them i created the duncan family on there and i was looking up pics to create their house and i found this website!

  87. says

    i like good luck charlie is the best show ever my name is alejandra reyes and i want to be your president bye.

  88. Roberta says

    I love this show and watch it with my kids. I don’t know where the house is, but when they did the Christmas movie, they are supposed to be in Las Vegas but it is in Salt Lake City and other areas nearby. Their house is not too different from a lot of craftsman houses in and around SLC. I live here and love the houses. I will keep my eyes peeled in the off chance their house exteriors are shot around here. Hope that helps.

    • Roberta says

      Also, the episode when they go to the ski lodge, it’s Brighton Ski Resort. It’s in a canyon of SLC, UT. Hope that helps.

  89. Wendy says

    The reason I happened upon this website was because, after watching an episode with my daughter, the one with Shirley Jones in it, I couldn’t help thinking the living room area and kitchen and stairs going up and where the front door is situated reminded me of the Partridge Family set. It looks so similar, except for the modern day furniture and colors.

    • says

      What an interesting observation! I hadn’t thought about the similarities, but I see your point. It was so fun seeing Shirley Jones on the show as their grandma!

  90. Tina says

    The exterior shots are from where I live, Overland Park, Kansas!! The exterior shot of the hospital, Menorah Medical Center, is just down the street (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menorah_Medical_Center), and I can pick out other familiar landmarks too. The mall – that’s Oak Park.

    As for the exterior shot of the house, well I can’t be sure, but it looks like houses in the Brookside neighborhood of Kansas City.

  91. Spencer says

    I love the movie “Disturbia” mainly because I know the screenwriter. I haven’t talked to him about it but I think The main characters house is the good luck Charlie house. The pictures of the outside of the house, the rest is all a set. The house is located on 6222 Painter Ave, Whittier, California. Just wondering if that helps any one!

  92. Meghann says

    Was just looking up where I could get the refrigerator magnets and then decided to look up the design of the house on google and your site popped up and I LOVE their house. It’s stunning and by no means affordable on a middle class income!! lol.

  93. jessie jonson says

    I my self have watched a lot of good luck charlie episodes and I love the. I am the only one in my family who watches the show and I have seen each show 30 times trust me I have counted .And I could watch each of them a hundred more times. I can not wait to see season three.I think it is a good show for all ages.So keep up the good work.

    Jessie

  94. Christi says

    I love GLC…I watch it whenever it is on. I even got my 5 yr old niece hooked on the show.

  95. Valerie says

    Does this house not remind anyone else of the boy meets world family home? Might be a stretch, but it looks like it to me!

  96. Carol says

    This is one of my family’s favorite shows– my husband and I find ourselves watching it even when our 8 year old daughter isn’t at home! Teddy’s bed has become the object of our daughter’s affection…..

  97. kathy says

    My daughter.loves this show. Theexterior of the home has looked familiar to me from day one..I think it may have also been on a show called Step by Step with Suzanne Somers and Patrick Duffy.

  98. Shannon says

    This is my absolute favorite tv house! Much of my home decor is inspired by this house as I am redoing it!

  99. Jacob says

    Actually my dad happens to know every single member of the good luck charlie cast and the house is actually located in denver colorado at 8798 edwin drive. also my dad happens to work at the film studio in colorado.also, I was going to say since they have time off set i actually live in new york so me and gabe in the tv show are best friends.finally, this is very exciting if anyone likes zoey 101 my dad also did a huge season for them so after the set I was able to hangout with zoey, logan, micheal, nicole, and chase, also all of us are best friends in real life so if anyone is looking for the phone numbers to call any one of them including the cast of good luck charlie just send me a comment back.

  100. Lola says

    I really love the canister set that sits on the island in the kitchen on some shows. Have been trying to find one just like it. Cannot find anywhere! Anyone know where I can get the old time candy jars that look like they sit on a turn style table of some sort? Please help!

  101. Brianna says

    I love watching this show! I visited the set one time it’s free!

  102. Alex1974 says

    I love this show and watch it with my kids. It’s like the sitcoms I grew up watching in the ’80s (not the cheesy ones). I love the chair they have in the basement rec room — the green kind of roundish one — anyone know where I could find a chair like that?

  103. V says

    I think I love this show more than my kids. And yes, I too have often wondered where to get that “candy jar” lazy susan they have. If you notice they always place it in a different spot in the kitchen for each episode.

    And that awesome basement chair someone else mentioned. It looks so cozy!

    I love the fact that the house is realistic and cluttered. Those awesome trays on the coffee table are always filled with various things. And who can forget the episode where the boys stuffed one of those old HUGE big screen TVs in their room? All the mother could do was sigh and say, “Everytime I come in here I regret it.” I feel that way sometimes!

    For those talking about the exterior, IMDB says that the exterior (real) house number is 501 but the door close up (the set) shows an address as 358.

    I am so glad they finally showed the picture bulletin board in the very rear of the house. I always wondered what was on it! I love the fact that they use so many pictures of the cast members at different ages.

  104. says

    I know this post is super old, but I just found your blog. Let me just say…Hi my name is Shavonda and Im a house-a-holic. Phew! Now that thats out of the way…Yes, I am hooked on houses. Always have been. Probably dates back to being an army brat and moving a gajillion times, and having a mom who was a realtor, and then going to design school myself. Anyway, I digress. Back to the Duncan house…Im totally hooked on this house. I love this show! My daughter and I watch it together pretty much everyday. This house has all my fav features all in one place. Its a craftsman.. its colorful…its ecelctic…enough said!

  105. Melissa S says

    This show is my guilty pleasure too! My only viable excuse is that I teach 4th grade, so I need to, um…”keep up with what the kids are watching!” But, the truth is, this show has the greatest premise ever and the actors are hilarious! Plus, I love that house!

  106. Lily says

    I love your observation that GLC is basically the only Disney show to feature a normal family. So true! I think that’s why I like it so much, it reminds me of the old shows like Lizzie McGuire and Even Stevens. And of course the house is adorable.

    P.S. My full name is Lily Catherine and my mom calls me Lily Kate! How fun!

  107. says

    I am just wondering if anyone made any progress on the Blue Jean Rug in the basement. I would love to have some direction before I start on it, but If I have to I will wing it. Thanks either way!!

  108. says

    I am going to denver this friday and i am wondrering the address for that house in denver so i can see it?It would be wouderful to see it where it was filmed

  109. says

    Hi! I was googling Good Luck Charlie images for a little daycare project and found your site – awesome! We own a little real estate company and are also wanting to build a home soon, so I am always looking for and noticing home things when we watch anything on TV (I see so many of the same boring floor plans day after day – where’s the cool creativity anymore?!)
    Anyhoo, our daughter and I like this show also – Amy is hilarious and I relate well to her, lol! I’ve always loved the ‘hearth room’ sitting area and mud room, too; and, though we don’t see basements in but a rare few homes here in Georgetown, I’ve always loved the idea and mine would probably look a lot like the Duncans’ if I got my wish. Those fantastic barn doors are really just catching on here (though I’ve been a fan for a while, I must say). The big, multi-functional bedrooms where the kids can have their own spaces for different activities (reading, projects, computer stuff, hanging out w/ friends, etc.) are what I want most. I really search out different layout and organizational ideas in shows and movies – it makes me want to become a builder of these types of homes because I know that buyers crave different/unique designs that are also functional. The extra niche/nook area in furniture ads, usually in the background where the tall dresser is shown, is cool too. I’ve always been an ardent believer that everything, rooms included, should have more than one function or use. It helps to feel that you’ve gotten more bang for your buck, I think.
    Well, I better get on with the daycare project. Sorry that I don’t know where the house is located – I spent a few minutes searching just now, but didn’t see anything except a random comment about it being in Pasadena. My son suggested that it was the house in Zathura, but it isn’t.
    Just had to comment on your wonderful site – wanted you to know that the subject matter and creativity, as well as the work and time you put in to bring it to us, are SO appreciated!!

  110. tviano says

    Ok. I found the house on Google Maps. I’m not going to reveal the actual street name, but it is in Pasadena and the street address is indeed 501.

    I realized when I found it the residents may indeed want to keep dorks like us away, so I’m not revealing the street name.

    In the Google street view, the mailbox and the tire swing are not present.

    You’ve got to admit, it’s a pretty cool looking house.

  111. says

    I missed this post (so thanks for doing the monthly recap!). We loooove Good Luck Charlie around here and I’m always studying their house. There is so much going on but I love how it feels. I have to show this post to my kids :)

  112. Bob Duncan says

    The street they live on is Edgewood Drive, and if you look closely at your pictures, you can see the address above the front door; 324.

    • PJ Duncan says

      The house itself is in Pasadena, but they say it’s in Denver in the show.

  113. Breanna says

    I think i love watching this show even more than my daughter. I have enjoyed watching the set change over the seasons. Another set i love: Disney channel’s “Dog With a Blog”.

  114. says

    i love good luck charlie. my favot charictor is amy dyncon be cous she is very funny

  115. Amy Lutz says

    Wow I do the same thing – check out the sets – try to peek into rooms. I am always wondering – is it really a set or an actual house…like dog with a blog – beautiful spanish house…..with an amazing courtyard in the middle

  116. Amy Lutz says

    It really depends on the area as far as them being able to afford the house – there are some really huge houses in Texas that are between 150,000-300,000 – huge house – and in other places I have lived like MD and SF they would be 700,000-1,000,000 seriously. And the father on this show As for one comment about the show Friends – its a good point but I think thats whay they were roomates. I lived in San Franscisco a few times and that was like14 years ago and I was paying $600 to rent a room…and that was a good deal…I always negotiated down – landlords and roomates I encountered wanted someone they could trust…and let me rent for a bit less. I didn’t get paid more then $12/hr. Most were paying a lot more – to be a roomate. They even converted dining rooms to bedrooms. And charged the 700-850 or more they were charging most. Know idea how much it is now – I do know two years ago my sister sublet her studio when she moved and she was subletting it for about 1400. Somehow people are scrapping together the money – most of my sister’s friends have good jobs in the finance industry…which I think Ross did as well – like NYC though there are different section of the city with varying rents and close by or far amenities.

  117. Amy Lutz says

    See I cut myself short saying, “And the father of the show” meant to go on to say he owned his own company. I have a six year old and rarely stay in the same place for long so got up several times while writing that. lol.

  118. Denise says

    Fun show. Cool house. These Disney family shows are more like the standard older comedies for families which I love. Today’s edgy quirky shiws with a lot of inappropriate content aren’t for me. I hope they keep developing fresh new shows because the kids grow up in a few years so the shiws go away.

  119. JordanfromAus says

    358 Edgewood Drive, Peyton, Colorado, United States
    This is the address for the show everyone! :)

  120. Sunny says

    Just read your update about the show being canceled! BOO indeed! ;-(

  121. Emma says

    I don’t want good luck Charlie to end and my brother wants a bed just like that but u know,for boys

  122. Lonnie Sue says

    This is my most favorite show to watch w/my kids. (15, 14 & 13 years old)…the House(set)….. the actors/actresses…. its just 100% Great Quality for laughter for the entire family….. lol that Mom is HILARIOUS!!! lol she makes me laugh out loud!
