They Built The Simpsons House! (10 Photos)

The Simpsons has been on for around 22 years, and just recently the "Real Life Simpsons House" is surfacing the web.

The winner of the competition, however, declined the house and wanted the cash prize instead. So this beautiful house, with every tiny detail included from photos to color-scheme to accessories, was stripped down to its basic essentials and sold.
