Co-owner of the house, Mrs. Ridder, was apparently absolutely shocked to see her home being semi-demolished. Reportedly, director Richard Benjamin persuaded her to appear in the movie's closing scenes after the house had been fully restored by the production.
I wasn't expecting that water, it had legs.
Initially, the front door swings into the house and the door knob is inside and the handle is outside. They are on the left (as viewed from outside the house). After the door and frame fall off the house it is propped up in the doorway, but the door now swings outward. The door could only do that if it were propped up backward, which it is not: the door handle is still outside and the knob is inside, and they are still on the left (when facing the house from outside).
When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts of 5 seconds to secure a 'PG' rating. All cuts were waived later in 1986 when the film was re-rated with a '15' certificate for home video.
