Narrow Houses

I came across an article on narrow houses, some of which are only 7 feet 10 inches wide, and of course that got me thinking… What in the world would encourage anyone to live in some of the narrowest of homes?

Apparently, many different reasons – from avoiding property taxes based on the width of your home, wanting to avoid traffic using the alley next to your house to just plain artistic and architectural expression. These homes reinvent the old adage “Home sweet Home.”
