|The Frozen House|
The Frozen House is a house located somewhere on the Newmaker Plane; its exact location therein is unknown. When Paul first locates it, the door is locked; the Green Key he has unlocks the door, but he still cannot open it. After some time pacing on the road in front of the house, a sound[todo: upload] is heard and, after Paul checks it again, the door has opened.
The house is one of the three locations pictured along the Building Photo Path, along with the School and the Windmill. Similarly, it is a location mentioned by Marvin in Petscop 6 and by one of the messages from Pink TOOL in Petscop 7.
Note that it may not be the house shown in the images; the house that Marvin draws and the house that appear in the picture are green, while the Frozen House itself is black:

An additional sign that these houses may not be the same (or possibly just an oversight by the creators) is that the doors are horizontally swapped; the house in the picture has its doorknob on the left, while the Frozen House has it on the right:

- Living Room
- Care's Bedroom
- Parents' Bedroom [todo: fix mentions of "parents' room" elsewhere for consistency]
The house's design and appearance largely does not change from episode to episode; the only significant changes are a ladder on the side of the house late in Petscop 11 and new signs and steps by the road in Petscop 14.
Paul finds the house in Petscop 11, after moving north-west from the Gray Wheel. There is a sign out front, and it is initially locked, though when Paul arrives he already has the Green Key to unlock it.
The sign out front:
This is a frozen house, captured
Paul approaches the front door; interacting with it dims the lighting as the key floats towards it. Once it unlocks (but doesn't open) the door, a textbox appears:
The key still works.
It still works.
... Though you've unlocked the
This (and the comment Paul makes) is a not-so-subtle reference to the "Or not, but you don't know how to open doors" message in the Even Care Lobby.
Paul walks around the house, but nothing is out of the ordinary. Eventually, he walks along the road in front of it, and after some walking back and forth, a tone[todo: upload] plays, and the door is open the next time he checks.
Paul checks outside of the house, walking around it. The camera now moves with him; as such, he can see that an AC unit is sticking out of the wall where Care's Bedroom is.
While revisiting Care's Bedroom, Marvin breaks in through the window and runs off with Care A. The scene resets to before Marvin broke in, and Paul checks the side of the house; there is now a ladder there, which he uses to repeat Marvin's action by breaking in and capturing Care A.
- The sign out front is different
- Additional signs with a balloon, a cake, and a picture of Care A
- Arrows in the ground pointing upwards
- Camera won't move away from this view at all
