The house which was turned into a social media sensation has two rooms and is shaped like a pie.
There are gargantuan mansions and sleek micro-apartments. There are cozy houses and expansive villas. However, have you ever heard of a house being called "skinny"? Yes, we are not joking - there is such a house.
Located in Deerfield, Illinois, the "Skinny House" is a two-bedroom accommodation that's unlike anything you have ever seen. According to Today, the unbelievably bizarre house was unearthed by TikTok user @eli.korn_. It is said to measure just three feet on one of the sides - a sight which is sure to leave you scratching your head vigorously. The house, which recently sold for $260,000, has now become a viral sensation on social media for its bizarre design. In the clip, the TikToker takes a tour of the home's slim exteriors which sent netizens into a tizzy as they now had more questions than answers."How does someone live there?" one user wrote. "But like...how do the stairs work? Are they just an entire corner? Are they spiral? is it just a LADDER?"
The video went viral and garnered over 1.2 million views and close to 5,000 comments. Some of the responses seemed to only add to the confusion as many tried to deduce just how anybody can live there."That's not a house, that's a hallway," a user wrote. "This has deeply upset me," said another. "How does someone live there?" questioned a third.
Locals reportedly refer to the building as The Pie House because it's shaped like a pie, with one of the corners looking like the pointy edge of a triangle. As to its dimensions, the house is set on a 3,876-square-foot triangle lot and ends up extending to about 20 feet in width. The home has a little over 1,600 square feet of living space, which also includes a finished basement, two bedrooms, and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Here are a few pictures of the interesting house:
