'Skinny' House Leaves Social Media Users Confused and Questioning How Someone Lives There | 22 Words

A property that has been christened as the "skinny house" in Illinois has left social media users scratching their heads as to how people actually live within its narrow walls...

Ladies and gents, welcome to the latest installment as to why 2020 is the strangest year yet.

A house has just gone viral for how weirdly thin it is.

Yep, just when you thought things couldn't get more bizarre.

Footage of the remarkably slender house was posted onto TikTok, where it was quick to gain a lot of attention from perplexed viewers.

And the strangest part of all?

A woman actually lives in the slender house, and it's rooms are actually very spacious... In their own peculiar way, of course.

Now, when you're house hunting, what is the primary thing you focus on?

Size, size, size.

Yep, we all dream of owning a huge house one day...

Or one of a decent size, at least.

So, when we're on the hunt for a house, we usually take the size into consideration.

However, not everyone is too fussy with the size of the house... So much so that someone has actually lived in a house famous for its "skinny" build.

Yep, a skinny house exists...

And the inside is not what any of us were expecting.

Here it is from the front.

Nothing out of the ordinary, right?

But, when you walk around to see the side of the house...

Well, that's when things start to get a little strange.

Where's the rest of the house?!

Has someone come and sawed it in half? Is there actually space for belongings inside? Do the homeowners sleep standing up? The questions are endless.

The peculiar-looking house gained fame after TikTok user, Eli.Korn paid it a visit...

And his viewers were a little baffled, to say the least.

His video has now had 1.2 million views...

And a showering of comments from befuddled watchers. One person commented, "That’s not a house – that’s a hallway." While another noted, "You gotta sleep standing up."

However, not everything is as it seems.

While the house looks ridiculously narrow from the outside, photos from the listing when it was up for sale show that it is quite the find from the inside.

Let's take a look.

Firstly, we have the living room - admittedly, quite a narrow room, but very livable all the same!

And then we have the kitchen.

Much bigger than expected!

The kitchen and the living room are joined as an open-plan layout...

Which gives the house a very spacious - and, of course, unexpected - feel.

Here's the master bedroom.

Again, a very normal-sized looking room, isn't it?

And here's the second bedroom...

Which is located down in the basement.

The property boasts 2 and a half bathrooms too...

I have no idea how the architects managed that.

Okay, I don't think many of us would rush to put a deposit down on the skinny house...

But it's quite an impressive property all the same! You can see the original listing in full here. For more bizarre house listings, keep scrolling...
