The interior layout of the house differs from the outside plan of the house. Standing out front of the house there is the family room on the left, then the front door and dining room in the center, then the garage on the right. The inside floorplan has a hall going to the right leading to the bedrooms. To the right is the garage, so the bedrooms for Sue, Axl, and Brick would have to be in the garage. Some scenes do show a small extension on the right side of the house, but it is too small to be the boys room and could not include Sue's room at all. Additionally, the floor level of the house is at least 4' higher than the garage floor level, yet there is no step down going from the front room into the hallway, plus when the door from the garage to the house is open the hallway and the garage floor are at the same level.
