"A small and simple one-room hut in which Goku lived with his adoptive grandfather Gohan. The shelf inside was once the resting place of Goku's keepsake: the Four-Star Dragon Ball."
Gohan's House Z-Encyclopedia Summary in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Grandpa Gohan's house (孫悟飯の家 Son Gohan no Ie, lit. "House of Son Gohan"), is a hut located at the foot of a forest near Mount Paozu, where Goku lived with Grandpa Gohan as a boy.


Inside Granpa Gohan's House

Inside the hut.

The house is a small building with few amenities, furniture and a well nearby. Grandpa Gohan used to live there alone until he found and adopted Goku. When he died, Goku lived there alone until he met Bulma. After his first search for the Dragon Balls, Goku decided to go live at Kame House to train, not returning home since then in the manga.

In the Dragon Ball Z anime, when Goku's house is introduced for the first time, Grandpa Gohan's house is next to it. When Toei decided to be faithful to the design and location of Goku's house shown in the manga, they changed to that house - which did not have the hut beside it.

In Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy, which takes place long after the end of Dragon Ball GT, the old hut still remains reasonably intact.

The replica of Grandpa Gohan's House in Conton City in Xenoverse 2

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, a replica of Grandpa Gohan's House is constructed in the Bamboo Forest Area of Conton City which was built over the ruins of Toki Toki City and was destroyed by the Dragon Ball Pedestal's Shenron statue that had been animated by Chronoa in a display of divine power before it grew out of control leveling most of the city. Using input from members of the Time Patrol, Conton City was constructed and the Bamboo Forest Area was modeled after Mount Paozu as it appeared when Grandpa Gohan lived their with Goku.

At one point, the Future Warrior can find Appule behind Grandpa Gohan's House and enlists the Future Warrior to assist the Frieza Force in combating the Z Fighters in the time fragment timeline from which this incarnation of Appule originates which unlocks a Parallel Quest.

After the main story is completed, Goku appears in the Bamboo Forest Area near Grandpa Gohan's house while Kid Gohan appears along the path leading from the forest to the Business District after The Saiyan Threat Saga is completed. Additionally as part of the Masters Pack DLC, Whis will appear next to the house near the fish roasting in a campfire. Additionally, Bardock appears near the large lake behind the house. Additionally Roasted Fish, Fish Bone, and Scale food items can be randomly found in the Bamboo Forest area around Grandpa Gohan's House.

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Grandpa Gohan's House (called Gohan's House in the game) appears in the Southeast Mountains. Gohan's House is near the area where Kid Gohan finds his father Goku performing Mental Simulation Training against a image of Piccolo at the start of Saiyan Saga Episode 1. In the Z-Encyclopedia's World section under Landmarks, the entry for Gohan's House mentions how Goku once lived their with his adoptive grandfather and that the shelf inside was once the resting place of the Four-Star Dragon Ball. If Kid Gohan visits his namesake's old house, he notes that he finds it small size kind of cute. Various other playable characters will comment about it if they visit. Though the hut is mostly abandoned, two chickens can be found living outside the hut near the well. As a result, Eggs of varying quality can occasionally be found near the hut, making it an ideal forging location for eggs.

During the Intermission after the Frieza Saga, Master Roshi can be found visiting the old house of his former student the Elder Gohan. If spoken to, he will tell them about how his former pupil raised Goku there and that Gohan was a great man, strong as an ox, while gentle as a spring breeze, as well as being a truly model student. Noticing he had been droning on quite a bit, Roshi gives them a Super Sacred Text of Martial Arts (a gift that boots a Soul Emblem's proficiency in the Z Fighter's community board) as thanks for their patience in listening to him. If spoken to after this, Master Roshi notes that while it's quiet there its a little too quiet for his tastes as he personally needs a little more hustle and bustle (while Kame House is located out in the sea it is still much closer to civilization than Gohan's House is).

During the Cell Saga, the Female Researcher can be found visiting Gohan's House. She is disappointed to learn that the owner had died and wishes she could have met him when he was alive.

As part of the -Trunks The Warrior of Hope DLC, Grandpa Gohan's House is shown to still be intact in Future Trunks' Alternate Timeline, presumably having been maintained by Future Chi-Chi and Future Ox-King. Unfortunately the area around it has become home to old Red Ribbon Army robots, though after Future Gohan's death, Chi-Chi occasionally visits the area to fight the robots as a way to blow off steam. Interestingly, there are two chickens living near the hut just like in the main timeline. Future Trunks can visit the hut when he's in the area though he won't comment on it, similar to Yamcha's Hideout.
