If you live in an inner-city Auckland apartment, you're probably used to not having a lot of space.
But this infamous house on a US street appears to really take the cake when it comes to 'tiny houses'.
TikTok user Eli Korn recently shared a video of the extraordinary "skinny house" in Illinois, bemusing over a million viewers.
In the video, the house appears to be a long, rectangular shape, not much wider at each end than a doorway.
"That's not a house, that's a hallway," one user wrote.
"One gust of wind and it's all over," another joked.
But as it turns out, you don't have to be as skinny as a rake to live in the unusual abode.
Instead, previous owners bought a triangular section of land for a particularly cheap price and decided to utilise the space as much as possible.
According to a recent listing on US real estate site Zillow, the two-bedroom house actually is much wider at one end, before tapering off to a point containing a small bathroom.
The house is reportedly infamous among locals who refer to it as the "pie house" since its shape is just like a slice of the dessert.
