The ‘Weld’ star was inspired by the ‘Porcupine Tree House,’ an iconic American house that featured a potted plant, a fireplace and a gabled roof that also housed a giant statue of a porcupine.
Yankovich and his wife, the former Amy Poehler, created the “House of the Living Dead” to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other organizations.
He said it’s a work of art that he plans to donate to the Children’s Museum in Kansas City, Mo.
“We just wanted to give it a shot,” he told ABC News.
“It’s just kind of a fun, quirky house that’s kind of based on a pothole that has been there for over 100 years.”
The house is the result of a collaboration between Yankowitz and Poehler.
“There are things about this house that I just love,” Yankowsky said.
“And I thought, ‘What if I made this really cool house and just took that and made it my own?'”
The design, which Yankowski calls “a potholiner’s dream,” is inspired by a “Porcampine Treehouse” in which the house had a pus and a porch and a giant potted flower, along with a huge fireplace and gabled roofs.
Yanksy added that it is a house that would be “kind of cool” to play in, but it’s also something that he would love to be able to move.
“The house itself is pretty amazing, but that is why we did it, and it’s why I am doing it, I just really wanted to do something,” he said.
The house features a fireplace that will be able heat up when the house is in a dark room, a gable and gable roof that will house a statue of the porcupines, and an art deco-style house.
Yankyovich said that he also wanted to use a lot of natural materials to create the home, which include grasses, vines and grassy fields.
“I want to make sure it looks really nice,” he added.
“If you take something that is a very ugly piece of wood, and put it in a place where you can really see it, it really gives it a special feel.”
He also hopes to raise some money for the Childrens Miracle Network Hospital.
“When I was doing this, I was so young, so naive, and I was just going to take whatever I could and do whatever I thought was cool,” he joked.
“You know, ‘Oh, you’re gonna take my $20 and spend it on some Christmas trees?'”
