In this episode of Cribs, we headed over to Famo.us, the startup that’s built a web platform for developers and designers.

A lot of tech companies try to make their offices feel as homey as possible for the comfort of their employees, but Famo.us just might take the cake. That’s because Famo.us is actually headquartered in what used to be CEO Steve Newcomb’s actual home. A few years ago, he was looking for an office to house his growing company — but he couldn’t find a space that he liked as much as his apartment in San Francisco. So he eventually decided to just stay where he was, knock down the walls, and turn it all into one big office.

The result is a really comfortable and quirky space, complete with kitchens, bathrooms, and even showers. It’s a place where Famo.us employees and community members can work hard, play hard, and also sleep it all off if need be– basically the full spectrum of working and living. See it all in the video embedded above.

And here are some photos we snapped while at Famo.us:
