People Have Been Left Confused Over ‘Skinny’ House 


A house recently listed for sale in the US has left people perplexed when a video of it was uploaded on social media and people started calling it a “skinny” house.

The TikTok user @eli.korn_ recently gave a tour of a house that is for sale in Illinois. Due to its incredibly small layout, it isn’t exactly your typical home.

The young man recorded a video of himself on TikTok while standing outside the eerily thin house to demonstrate the peculiar nature of its design.

People have expressed confusion about how the house, which has received over 360,000 likes on YouTube, can be useful given it is so “skinny.”

One person commented on the post: “This has deeply upset me.”

Another wrote: “That’s not a house, that’s a hallway.”

Whilst a third asked: “How does someone live there?”

The mansion, which is officially known as the “Pie House,” is larger than it first appears. In essence, while one side of the home seems to be narrow, as you get to the other side, it progressively becomes wider.

The house is currently on the market for $269,000 (£206,232), and the local estate agent claims that it has started to gain some local notoriety.

The commercial reads:

“You can now own Deerfield’s famous ‘Pie House’!

“This iconic home is larger than [it] appears, with over 1600 square feet of living space including the finished basement. Good natural light with lots of character. This one bedroom (plus one in the basement), two and [a] half bath home has plenty to offer! Open floor plan on main level with hardwood floors.”

The house has now been SOLD!
