“Thin is in” when it comes to home design, writer Leah Konen with pointclickhome.com reminds us in the article 12 of the Narrowest Homes in the World. Homes are shrinking and architects are getting creative in designing small spaces that don’t make you feel boxed in.

I stumbled across this story featuring some of the narrowest homes in the world, such as a 3-feet wide by 33-feet high house in Madre de Deus, Brazil. Now that is small!

It just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how small a lot, a home can be squeezed anywhere. Read the article and view the images here.

Also, take a peek inside a tiny home by watching this YouTube video below from CBS about Jay Shafer, the creator of the 120-square-foot house with Tumbleweed Tiny House Co. See how he’s transforming small living right in backyards across the country.
