Distortions only stayed in the apartment until 1979 when Ed and Jodi bought their first house. There was a bomb shelter on the property which became the paint room, with the rest of the production being done in the garage. While in this house, masks such as Humanocerous, Time Traveler, Human Error, Tusk Alien, and Nightmare 1 were sculpted in the garage.

They only kept the house for approximately 9 months then moved into a larger house with Distortions being based out of the garage and the lower level of the house. Distortions remained in this house until 1982 and it was in this period when Distortions truly began to take off and enter its golden age. The growing success of Distortions made life at home rather difficult. It was not at all uncommon for Ed to be relaxing in front of the television in the evening when there would be a knock on the door from someone wanting to tour Distortions. It became quite apparent that Distortions had grown to the point where it needed its own facility.
