* This was the entire premise of ''Series/NeverEverDoThisAtHome'', which took a house that was about to be demolished and performed things that you should "[[DontTryThisAtHome never ever do at home]]" in the name of "science". Such as, for instance, moving a piano from upstairs to the ground floor by ''placing explosives on the ground under it.''

* In ''Film/IronMan1'', Tony's Malibu house suffered some damage from his suit testing. In ''Film/IronMan2'', it's destructively remodeled during his fight with Rhodes, and subsequently repurposed into housing [[spoiler:a prismatic accelerator]]. It's really not much of a house any more. Probably why [[spoiler:he's living in New York in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''.]] The first trailer for ''Film/IronMan3'' shows [[spoiler: Tony's "trophy room" of old suits exploding, and his entire BigFancyHouse getting blasted into the sea. Turns out he has more armors stored in a safe room which he uses in the finale... and he blows up all of them too.]]
