"The house Goku and his family call home. Though it doesn't look like it from the outside, it is a two-story building. Goku often heats a drum filled with water outside and uses it as a makeshift bath."
Goku's house (孫悟空の家 Son Gokū no Ie), is a house where Goku and his family live. Some time after the end of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, the Ox-King bought the large house for Goku, Chi-Chi and their family to live together. Incidentally, the Ox-King is often seen spending time with the family here as well.
Goku's house was introduced in the very first episode of Dragon Ball Z. However, it was not officially introduced in the Dragon Ball manga until the middle of the Frieza Saga. As such, the anime's design of the house was initially different from the manga's design (though still similar in size) and was right beside Grandpa Gohan's House, at the foot of a forest near Mount Paozu. The anime's version of the house is also featured in the first five Dragon Ball Z movies and several video games. During the Androids Saga, however, Goku's house in the anime was changed to match how it looked in the manga and away from Grandpa Gohan's hut.
Goku's house features a kitchen in the white hut area, a bedroom and presumably another bedroom in either the other side of the larger part or the narrow side area which connects to the larger part of the house. There is also an outdoor bathtub (which is effectively a steel barrel over the top of a fire) as seen during the first four Dragon Ball Z movies and the end of the Kid Buu Saga.
In Future Trunks' Alternate Timeline, Goku's house is where Future Goku passed away from a Heart Virus with his bedside surrounded by his wife Future Chi-Chi, family, friends, and fellow Future Z Fighters. Following the deaths of all the Z Fighters save for Future Gohan, Future Ox-King moved in with his daughter Future Chi-Chi due to the threat of the Androids and Future Chi-Chi being all alone after Future Gohan effectively moved out in order to readily confront the Androids.
In the Dragon Ball Super episode "Goku's Energy Is Out of Control?! The Struggle to Look After Pan", Goku destroys his house when he accidentally flies right through it due his Delayed Onset Ki Disorder. This forces Goku, Chi-Chi and Goten to stay at Gohan and Videl's home in Satan City temporarily. By the next episode, however, Goku's house is back to normal.
During the Peaceful World Saga of Dragon Ball Z in the anime, Gohan is shown living in a house next door to Goku's home with Videl and Pan and it remains this way in Dragon Ball GT, in which in the episode "A Worldwide Problem", Goku and Gohan's house are both destroyed by a Baby-infected Gohan and Goten while powering up to fight Goku and Pan. Both houses are later restored along with the Earth by Porunga after the defeat of Baby. In the Dragon Ball Super anime, Gohan moves into a house in Satan City after marrying Videl.
- Goku – He lives in this house since his father-in-law bought it for the family.
- Future Goku - In the Alternate Timeline, he lived in the larger house built by Future Ox-King with Future Gohan and Future Chi-Chi until his death via Heart Virus. Future Goku passed away in his home surround by his family, friends, and the future Z Fighters. As a boy he lived in the hut owned by his adoptive grandfather.
- Chi-Chi – After her marriage to Goku, she moved from her father's castle on Fire Mountain into the larger house built by her father.
- Gohan – Lived with Goku and Chi-Chi and eventually moves into a house in Satan City after marrying Videl. In the Dragon Ball Z anime and Dragon Ball GT, he lives next door to Goku's house along with their daughter, Pan.
- Future Gohan - Lived with his father and mother until his father's death by Heart Virus. Apparently moved out following the deaths of the Future Z Fighters in order to be able to readily confront the Androids and possibly to keep his overbearing mother Future Chi-Chi from interfering with his training as she had during his youth.
- Icarus – During certain movies and filler material, most notably the Garlic Jr. Saga and the filler episode "Goku's Ordeal".
- Goten – Grew up in the house that Chi-Chi, Gohan (until he got married and moved out) and Goku (after he came back to life) live in.
- Ox-King – Responsible for constructing the large house used by his daughter Chi-Chi, son-in-law Goku, and grandsons Gohan and Goten. Has only been seen sleeping in the house once, so it is unknown if he lives there, but he is seen there with Chi-Chi whenever she's there. It is likely that he resides their while visiting his daughter and her family.
- Bulma - In Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, she briefly stayed the night with Chi-Chi and Gohan (before he left with Icarus) in the Son family home.
- Future Bulma - Was present with her infant son and Future Vegeta when Future Goku died of Heart Virus.
- Krillin - Occasionally stayed in the Son family home on several occasions while visiting Goku and Gohan. He briefly slept here along with the Ox-King during the Vegeta Saga Filler after he failed to inform Chi-Chi of Goku's death during the battle with Raditz and Gohan's abduction by Piccolo.
- Piccolo – During the Trunks Saga to readily train with Goku and Gohan, though apparently preferred to (or was forced to by Chi-Chi) sleep (and meditate) outside.
- Yamcha - During the Androids Saga, he stayed there while Goku was bedridden via Heart Virus, assisting Chi-Chi in caring for Goku and possibly to stand guard in the event they were attacked by the Androids.
- Trunks - Due to his friendship with Goten, Trunks was a frequent visitor during his childhood. He and Goten even took a bath in the drum the son family uses as a makeshift bathtub in the anime. Also visits it inside the Timespace Rift in Dragon Ball Fusions and is where he, Goten, and Tekka meet Kid Goku (who had traveled from the period when he was training under Kami).
- Future Trunks - As a baby, Future Trunks was present with his father and mother when Future Goku died of Heart Virus. He also visited it in the main timeline during the Android Saga.
- Future Vegeta - Was present with Future Bulma and his son when his rival Future Goku died from Heart Virus.
- Videl - First visited during the Great Saiyaman Saga after blackmailing Gohan into training her how to fly so they could fight fairly during the upcoming 25th World Martial Arts Tournament which she convinced Gohan to participate in (which lead to Goku deciding to comeback to life for one day so he could participate as well as see his friends and family). Though Chi-Chi did not get along with her at first, she later became more accepting of Videl upon learning she was wealthy (due to being Mr. Satan's daughter who had become world famous after claiming credit for Gohan's victory over Cell) and was mistakenly under the impression she and Gohan were involved romantically (which itself was actually foreshadowing as Videl would gradually develop feelings for Gohan while training with him and Goten). After Videl and Gohan officially became a couple and started dating, Videl became a frequent visitor. After her marriage to Gohan, Videl would continue to make occasional visits to see her in-laws. Additionally in Fusion Reborn (when she and Gohan had just started dating while still in high school) she had dinner with Chi-Chi, Goten, and Gohan, even helping Chi-Chi out with the dishes afterwards before being summoned away to deal with an emergency caused by the dead returning to Earth due to Janemba's rampage in Other World.
- Pan - Pan would occasionally visit Goku's House to spend time with her parenteral grandparents and uncle. However at some point in Pan's long lifetime, Mount Paozu was abandoned by the Son family (presumably due to it having become more dangerous as the area apparently became home to demons such as Lord Yao). GT Pan also visits Goku's House when it becomes part of the Timespace Rift in Dragon Ball Fusions.
- Oolong - In Dragon Ball Z: World's Strongest, Oolong pays Goku a visit while he is taking a bath to inform Goku of Master Roshi and Bulma's abduction by Dr. Kochin. He also visits briefly in Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge in order to go camping with Goku, Gohan, Krillin, and Icarus.
- Master Roshi - During the God of Destruction Beerus Saga, Roshi briefly visited after hearing about the prize money Mr. Satan had given Goku for his role in defeating Kid Buu. However he was chased out by Chi-Chi once she discovered the reason for his visit was he wanted to convince Goku to use the money to buy dirty movies (Chi-Chi and her family were in desperate need of the money after her father lost his treasure).
- Tekka - In Dragon Ball Fusions after appearing in the Timespace Rift, Tekka briefly makes occasional visits to Goku's House during Tekka's adventures with Goten, Trunks, Kid Goku, Pan, and the rest of their team as a result of his and Pinich's wish for the Timespace Tournament.
