Moving into the World's Skinniest House

Moving into the World's Skinniest House

Last year, Israeli writer Etgar Keret commissioned Polish architect Jakub Szczesny to build what would become the world's skinniest home at only 4 feet wide. Last week, the project in Warsaw was finally completed and ready for move-in!

The two-story, 46-square-foot house, wedged into an alley, is so narrow that it leaves no room for actual stairs or even a window. Two holes in the wall offer a trickle of light into the bedroom, amenities include a wet bathroom with a showerhead above the toilet, and the fridge has room for only two drinks.

It's not exactly a space for entertaining, but Keret plans to live there off and on for six months — and then put it up for rent. Any takers?
