Game of Thrones™ Houses: Fire, Ice, and Everything Nice

by Holly UttApril 5, 2019

Fire, ice, and everything nice may sound like the beginning of a sweet song, but in the Game of Thrones, it’s anything but. If you’re not familiar with HBO’s hit series, these featured characters are fan favorites who couldn’t be more different from each other.

 

The Night King

The Night King is one of the most feared characters throughout the series, yet he’s one viewers also know the least about. What we do know is that he was the first of the White Walkers and is the leader of the Army of the Undead. He is also said to bring “The Long Night” in the newest season of Game of Thrones (which, if we’re being honest, doesn’t sound like something we want to be signed up for). The Night King is said to live in the far north, in the Lands of Always Winter, so his ideal home would reflect his ice-cold demeanor.

A glass house would be perfect for the Night King to see the harsh winter he’s bringing to everyone in Westeros, and to keep an eye out for the dragonglass-wielding Night’s Watch. He’ll also need plenty of land for his undead army, with close proximity to a graveyard so he can add new recruits to his horde at a moments notice.

 

Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen has many names, titles, and battle victories throughout the series. (Seriously, you could take a bathroom break during her personal introductions and still have time to grab a snack on your way back to the couch.) The Mother of Dragons “gives birth” to her fire-breathing babies when, during her husband Khal Drogo’s funeral pyre, she walks into the flames with her dragon eggs and walks away unscathed. Did we mention that Daenerys is fireproof? There’s not much this gal can’t do.

Daenerys has spent much of the series in warm, arid regions, which is why Santa Fe, New Mexico would be the perfect locale for her and her dragons. Of course, no ordinary home will do. She needs a grand hall for council meetings and for receiving the petitions of her people. Vaulted ceilings are a must-have to accommodate her giant “children,” while fireplaces in each room, an outdoor fire pit, and a wood-fired oven would elevate her home to true Mother of Dragons status. 

 

Jon Snow

Jon Snow, also known as The King in the North, is said to be the perfect union of fire and ice, hailing from Northern lands while fiery Targaryen blood runs through his veins. Is he fireproof? We don’t know yet, but we do know that he can brought back from the dead. Pretty cool, if you ask us.

As former Commander of The Night’s Watch, Jon would want a home reminiscent of life back at The Wall, so a single-bedroom A-frame log cabin in Michigan would be perfect for him. Jon needs space to practice his battle skills, and a detached shed would be perfect to stash his weaponry for battle. Jon is not without his enemies, so he’d want an open floor plan to give them nowhere to hide should they intrude. 

 

Don’t forget to tune in on April 14 for the epic season eight premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones. It’s the final season, and we can’t wait to see what adventures and misadventures our favorite characters get into one last time.
