A ransacked home(n)

The first thing you notice when you enter this small house is that it is dark. As your eyes adjust, you see why: someone has thrown a blanket over the sole window in this one-room house. Your eyes scan the room and make another note: someone has ransacked the house. That explains the blanket: the thieves didn't want anyone glancing in and catching them in the act! The home is a mess.
The north door is open.
The only obvious exit is north.
