Life as a House script
Synopsis: "Life as a House" is the poignant, often humorous journey of one man who decides to tear down his house -- and winds up rebuilding the world around him. From the day he picks up his sledgehammer, George Monroe embarks on a grand adventure that will shatter expectations and build a foundation for many different dreams among his family and neighbors.

Robin stops at the door, trying to figure out why her son is

sitting in a pile of his own clothes. Ryan and Adam join

her, looking equally perplexed.


George's dog, GUSTER, is doing his business on the lawn of a

modern day robber baron, DAVID DOKOS, who exits his house

with a briefcase. He hops into his Mercedes and proceeds to

chase Guster straight across his well-manicured grass.

Guster easily escapes death and runs off. George walks out

of his shack as David hops the curb, flips him off and drives

away. George waves goodbye.


Stick it up your ass! Have a nice day.

(glancing around)


Guster runs to his side as Colleen rushes out of her house.


This has got to stop!


He escaped. He's going back in.


Does it give you some sort of perverse

pleasure to expose your...penis in plain

view of my sixteen year-old daughter?


There are no windows facing



George, this is the third time.
