We know you love tiny homes. You can pretty much take them anywhere, they”re eco-friendly, and they typically won”t break the bank. But what happens when you still want to save space, but can”t fit everything you need into a tiny house?
That”s where these narrow buildings come in. They might have a few hundred more square feet than those oh-so-cute tiny homes, but they”re not too roomy. Some of them function as family homes, while others host businesses willing to put up with cramped spaces and goofy architectural choices. Some of them are even spite homes, created to contest land disputes in the cheekiest way possible. Either way, they”re all worth a look.
