The Smallest House In The World

Isn’t this small house just amazing? Nicely built and the bedroom above the entering room is astonishing. The house was created by Jay Shafer and it seems like a good place to take a rest for a couple of hours. We don’t know for sure whether it’s the smallest one in the world or not, but for sure this house deserves to be listed as one of the smallest in the world as, besides of its size,  it’s also practical.

    Great find! You’ve rediscovered a story thats at least 3 years old on the web. Here’s the website of the company thats been marketing them :

    Either the photographer wasn’t impressed with the owner’s book collection or the owner has two of the same books. The DICTIONARY and other books are repeated for 2 different shelf pictures.

    Perfect for a hermit like me!

    I would love to live in a small house, it would be all I needed! It would also keep me from buying anything too big for my house/couldnt afford anyways. I’ll build a small house one day!

    actually if you look close, that whole section of books is on the other shelf.

  11. jmeem917 says:

    Not only the book shelves, but all the shelves are staged!

    Cheap for heating at least, looks a lot bigger from the inside.

  13. Claire says:

    I’ve been inside that! There’s even a shower and a couch that they didn’t show.
    I almost bought one myself.
    Very cute, but very expensive. :]

    A modern day Thoreau except im sure its a little to nice for him! lol and it would be topped of if it was on a lake.

    What do you do if you’re up top and the bottom of it catches on fire? The window isn’t big enough to climb out of.

  19. Tracy says:

    Looks like he has everything he needs. I am sure he saves a fortune on heating bills!

  20. Phil E. Drifter says:

    I don’t see a bathroom. Where does he take a dump?

  21. Tiffany says:

    It’s not fake. I saw it on Yahoo News before. :]

    I want a house like that. It’d be cool. Just not out in the middle of nowhere though. xD

  22. alexxa44 says:

    I’ll take one. With SF Bay Area prices being what they are, this looks like a winner!

  23. nice place, but no pool table? every house needs a pool table

  24. Ace says:

    So much more luxurious than the UniBomber’s shack.

  25. Tread says:

    What are the taxes on a joint like that?

  26. The Dentist says:

    The crazy thing is that Jay built this house in doors. In a warehouse if I remember correctly.It really suits his personality. He’s soft spoken, so you could hear him in the bedroom if you were in the kitchen.

  30. Kendra says:

    Where’s the bathroom?

    Look around, people. Tall grass, isolated location…
    The WORLD is his bathroom.

  31. hipmonkey says:

    I could live here.

  32. Sean says:

    Would you please stop cluttering up the internet?

    It’s not the worlds smallest house. It’s an uninteresting small house.

  33. kylie says:
