'Help Ernie restore order to his house before his wife Rosie, and their newborn daughter, return from the hospital.'

Man About the House was the third text adventure featuring Ernie Spludge and was originally released for the Spectrum 48K by Zenobi Software.

A PAWed Amstrad CPC/PCW CP/M version of this title was produced and sold by Philip Reynolds of The Adventure Workshop with Personal Computer Whirled! also on the disk.

The original Amstrad port is currently "lost" but a new version for CP/M, produced from the Spectrum source file, has been created. (2018)
