Not a hugely urgent question. Just some curiosity that's been picking at me, ALL DAY

What does hb, on a house description mean. Like i know br=bedroom and ba=bathroom but what DOES hb mean.?

I'm playing on Moonlight Falls and the Van Goulds house is called
Massively Massive Mansion (3br, 3ba, 3hb)

I've had a look inside the house at all the rooms but i still can't figure out what it is and it's been nagging at me all day even though it's probably something simple. >

So any answers? (:

Are any of the rooms hidden?

Half-bath most likely. Like a toilet and sink, one you usually find on the main floor for guests to use.

Half- bathroom? Half bedroom?


EDIT: Oops, Jessa beat me to it!

As I was looking at the house, I wanna say they mean half bathroom. There are three full ones and a few extras with just a toliet and sink.

but normally for half-bathrooms they say like, .5. like it will be 3.5 ba. meaning 3 full and one half. So i don't think that's it.

@TanyaRubirose. Yes, i think there was a couple of basement rooms with coffins, and the staircase to them could only be accessed by the turning bookcase door. Having a look around the only other real things I notice are a pool room, gym, a couple offices, a few small living rooms and an attic that has bonehilda's coffin in it

I think it refers to hidden rooms, then. It's definitely not half-baths.

It probably does mean half-bath. Yes, normally they do 3.5 for 3 full and ONE half. But if there are 3 half-baths they can't really do 4.5 as that would be confusing..

It doesn't make sense for it to be 3 half baths bc there are only 2 half baths in the house. I'm not sure what it means

While here... What do people mean by "(IMO)" I see people say it on threads and all, but no clue what it is.

It's hidden rooms. Count the number of rooms she mentioned as being behind one of the trick bookcases in her reply to me

Two, there are two rooms in the basement.

The description also says 3 baths when there are 4 full baths. So I stand by HB being half bath as that is what I've always known it to be in regards to house plans.

They screwed up in counting the bathrooms, pretty sure they screwed up counting the half baths, mistook one of the full baths as a half bath when writing the description.

3. There's also the room at the top of the stairs.

That's a landing. Because you can't have stairs directly behind the bookcase. How can HB in any way mean hidden room?

They counted the bathrooms incorrectly, they counted the half-baths incorrectly.
