Extremely narrow spaces do have their limitations Extremely narrow spaces do have their limitations

For most people, an absolutely absurd idea. Houses that often have a maximum of one meter width are not on your everyday dwelling list. At the same time these cramped buildings often have an interesting history about their creation. With the rising prices of properties it is quite common that the building parcels are appearing in places where only garage might have been considered for construction.  Extremely slender buildings are not just a phenomenon of the moderns day.  As a matter of fact, they go back in time and can be found in many historical centres of cities till date.
