The World's Narrowest House

Does this bed seem comfortable to you? Not me! That's for sure!

Eeghads. Horrifying. This is the EXTREME opposite of my house. Not that my house is a mansion. Far from it. My house is a cluttered catastrophe. This house is so narrow it almost makes me queezy. It's called the Keret House and it opened towards the end of October in the former Jewish Ghetto district of Warsaw, Poland. "The extraordinarily narrow house built opportunistically in an alley, varies in width, being 122 cm (48 in) at its widest interior span, and just 72 cm (28 in) at its narrowest." So at the WIDEST the "house" is 4 feet and it is less than 2 1/2 feet at its narrowest.  I'm getting shivers just thinking about it.
Have a look at this place! I love that one of the only pieces of art is a framed picture of Harry Houdini. Once you learn about him, I think it's highly appropriate... if you are too lazy to check, Harry Houdini was an escape artist. :P
