Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was at the top of our indoor laundry room door. On the door casework. It didn’t move when we got close to it. We did not let it live because my son was freaked out. So was I. It was the biggest spider that I’ve seen so far in our house. I could not find it online. If anyone knows what kind this is, please let us know.
