Behind the Scenes

The real house is located in Chicago at 2119 S Homan Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60623. Tourists are discouraged to flock around the location according to neighbors. Despite this, the home owners welcome fans looking for pictures, although a basket requesting donations is often placed in front of the house.

Although it is believed the building has normal occupants, it isn't confirmed. When scenes are not being filmed there, the production company does its best to keep the building attractive to appease the neighbors, as seen in the photo many flaws such as the rusted fencing are cleaned up.

In the photo you can see a stretch limousine parked on the grass on the right side. It's unsure if this is related to the program or there for some other reason.


  • According to Frank, this is a family house and is where he (and presumably his brothers) grew up.
  • The Gallaghers were forced to pay rent but as of Season 6, they pay mortgage.
  • It was mentioned that all of the Gallagher children were born on the kitchen table.
  • Peggy and Frank seem to be the only ones who know of the many hiding spots for money as well as ways in and out of the house.
  • During Season 10, the house appeared to have renovations and is fixed up more, no doubt because of Fiona giving the family money.
  • Although the show is set in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood, the house used for filming is actually located in the city's North Lawndale neighborhood. While the Gallaghers are said to live on Wallace Street, the house is actually located on Homan Avenue.
