Western Conifer Seed Bug

This is not a Stink Bug.  It is a Leaf Footed Bug in the family Coreidae.  Your individual looks like a Western Conifer Seed Bug, a species that frequently enters homes to hibernate when the weather begins to cool.  We don’t know where on the planet your house was built, but we can tell you that the Western Conifer Seed Bug is native to the Pacific Northwest, but has spread across North America beginning in the 1960s.  Shortly after the beginning of the 21st Century, it was also reported in Europe and it is now commonly found across northern Europe where it is considered an Invasive Species.
