Episode 5: Polarized (nightmare)
The Madsen Household is where David Madsen, Joyce Madsen and her daughter Chloe Price live. It is the previous residence of William Price before his untimely death. Max revisits the house when she is reunited with Chloe.
The address is 44 Cedar Avenue, Arcadia Bay, Oregon.
The house is explorable during "Chrysalis" and "Chaos Theory". An alternative version of the ground floor is also explorable at the end of "Chaos Theory", thanks to Max travelling back to her childhood. Both alternate and normal versions of the house are fully explorable in "Dark Room".
The house has two bedrooms, including Chloe's room and Joyce and David's room, one bathroom, an open plan kitchen-living room, a back yard and a garage, mostly used by David. There are also some storage rooms which are not open to Max, including another ground floor room by the front door.
In the alternative version, the garage has been partially transformed into a downstairs bedroom for Chloe, leaving her upstairs bedroom abandoned.
The following is what Max wrote about the Madsen Household in her diary:
Going back to Chloe's old house for the first time in five years was like the ultimate rewind. Some things were obviously different, but some things weren't. The house smelled exactly the same as it did when we were growing up.
The house is half-painted blue, and is falling slowly into disrepair. It is obvious that the family has no time or desire to fix up the house. However, the paint job is finished in the alternative timeline, showing that William cares more about the house than David.
Max looks at a huge carpet stain in the front room, and reminisces about her and Chloe spilling some of Joyce's wine. The two girls were unable to get the stain out despite scrubbing frantically. There is also a reference made to this by William in "Chaos Theory", when he tells the girls "No Chloe and Max wine tasting sessions!".
Outside, Max remarks that the old Barbecue is unused; probably because it was William who used to man it at backyard barbecues in the household. Max can also use the swing in the backyard two times and reveal some extra info about her and Chloe's time together.
