It Was an Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny.....

.....House!  That's right. It is a real life variation of a Sims 10x10 house challenge with a twist. This little house in Seattle recently sold for almost $400,000 and it only has 830 square feet.  I love a tiny house...probably more than the average person....but that is just crazy!

I found this on Yahoo today and I had to share. This sliver of a house is just 55 inches wide at the narrowest point.  Shaped like a thin triangle, it is actually so small that you have to stand to the side to take things out of the oven.

Best of all is the name.  It's the Spite House.  No one seems to know for sure why such a minuscule home was constructed, but apparently one of the leading theories is that it was done out of spite for a neighbor due to a property line dispute.

That little triangle to the left is the Spite House.  The $400k house.  That someone actually puchased.
Go figure.

If you would like to read more about this unique dwelling, you can check out the Yahoo article here: Super Tiny Spite House

And if you would like to get into the "small spaces" spirit...plop down a 10x10 micro lot in your game and see what you can come up with....or better yet, try using a 15X20 and only using half of the lot.  Good luck and happy building!
