Quick Descent

A mirror-finish slide -- which had to be installed first, before floors or walls -- wends its way through the house like a stainless steel intestine. Starting in the attic, you grab a canary yellow cashmere blanket from a pile to speed your journey, hop in, and descend gracefully to the third floor. There you transfer to the next segment, rumble through a second-floor bedroom, slow as the slope flattens to clear a couch in the den, and pop out a few yards from the dining room table.
