The House Edit
The apartment is located in a big century-old wooden boardinghouse, which has been divided into several apartments. It's made almost entirely of wood and it managed to survive all of Chicago's fires. It creaks and groans with the wind, which is all the time in Chi-town. It's a place with a history and the neighborhood is quiet.
Mrs. Spunkelcrief owns the building and lives on the first floor. While the Willoughbys also rent from her and live on the second floor. Harry's apartment, consisting of the house's basement and subbasement, it is the only apartment stretching over two floors. It is a rental apartment, and its rent is cheaper than those of the other apartments above ground. There are stairs near the front of the house that go up to the Willoughbys apartment on he second floor.
Harry's Apartment—Description Edit
Harry's apartment has one larger room used as the general living room, which holds a small kitchenette and a fireplace. A door leads to a bedroom, which has an adjacent bathroom. In the floor is a hinged door that leads down to the subbasement. It consists of one room which Harry uses as his laboratory.
Due to his magic, electric devices and the gas heater are prone to malfunction, and therefore not used by Harry. He instead makes do with old-fashioned sources of light and warmth, using the fireplace as well as candles and lamps. There are a special special charcoal/wood-burning stove with a vent.In Fool Moon, Harry has installed a new anti-burglar, steel-framed door to replace the one a Toad Demon broke down the previous year. Demon acid burned away most of the furniture and he had to change it. Harry likes furniture with lots of wood and soft fabric. There are sunken windows high on each of the four walls and one in the bathroom. 
In Death Masks, Harry describes his place as a cave with two chamber. Bookshelves lined most of the walls, and there were tapestries where there weren't bookshelves. And an original Star Wars movie poster. He had scattered rugs all over his floor—there were: handmade navajo rugs, black area rug with Elvis's face on it.In Death Masks, Harry had moved his .44 from the office to home after he lost his .357 in the Faerie war. By the door he keeps a basket of attached to the wall filled with holy water, garlic cloves, vials of salt, and iron filings for any vampires, demons or faeries with maliscous intent showed up at his door.
Harry has a Mickey Mouse alarm clock. In Death Masks, after a bad night, Harry's Mickey Mouse alarm clock wakes him up. Harry wanted to smack the clock for waking him up but held back the impulse. He wouldn't sleep in the same room with a person who would hit Mickey Mouse.  
In Blood Rites, Brownies had cleaned the place and it was sparkling with the scent of pine bough. Harry can't tell anyone or the service will disappear, that's how it works with faeries. The furniture is: a sofa, a love seat and a couple of recliner type chairs. 
- Main article: Harry Dresden's Lab
Harry's Lab is located in the sub-basement of his apartmnent. The floor-door is kept hidden under a toss rug. Stairs lead down into it. It has a few lamps, a pair of burners, and a kerosene heater. There's a long table in the center and three table along three of the walls. There's a clear space where a brass circle is laid out on the floor and fastened into the cement with bolts. Shelves over the tables were stuffed with cages, boxes. tupperware, jars, cans, containers of all descriptions, a pair of unusual antlers, fur pelts, many old books, and along row of notebooks filled with his own notes and a white skull. Bob the Skull.
There is a small backyard with a sandy patch of earth set aside for Mouse's use. There is miniature jungle of lilacs that Mr. Spunkelcrief, now deceased used to prune and they haven't been pruned since. In Turn Coat, the lilacs are in bloom an dbees buzzed around the bushy plants.

In Small Favor, Harry uses catnip in a bag tied over Little Chicago in his lab and lets Mister play with it to confound the Gruffs so they can't find him. Harry shovels the snow because it's worthwhile to him to make his neighbors safer and happier and because it's the one thing he can control when everything else is too big and unknowable.

In Changes, Agent Barry Tilly and the FBI break Harry's door down and eventually capture him after Harry stashes some stuff in the Nevernever. The FBI dismantled his apartment, albeit in a somewhat respectful way—like the books are entirely off the shelves, but stacked in piles, not strewn all over, and so on. Harry returns to find Lea with Mister in her lap and Susan and Martin in cacoons. Lea gives Harry a gem from his mother which holds the secrets of the Ways. Later, the apartment is attacked, set on fire, by Eebs. Harry breaks through the ceiling to rescue Mrs. Spunkelcrief.
