The World's Skinniest House

Take a tour inside what may be the skinniest house ever built -- the bite-sized answer to the McMansion.

"Can you actually stay in a house 1 meter WIDE by 10 meters TALL?"

"At first, the municipality refused, but in the end with the plan allowed the construction, that became a touristic spot in Madre de Deus, Brazil, a small town of 12 thousand people."

"There are benches in front of the house where the tourists can spent some time watching the unusual building. Some, more curious, ask to go inside and take pictures. The couple now has plans to build a 4th floor, 'open, for leisure, with barbecue and everything'."
