People are confused by how someone could live in this ‘skinny house’

Buying property often means having to make a compromise.

But would you be willing to live in a ‘skinny house’ which looks about as wide as a doorway.

The property, in Deerfield, Illinois, has recently gone viral on TikTok.

Eli.Korn visited the site and posted a video of the house, that is said to be famous among locals.

The video has had over 300,000 likes and people were confused about how anyone could actually live in the unusual shape.

One person commented: ‘That’s not a house – that’s a hallway.’

Another added: ‘You gotta sleep standing up.’

From the angle of Eli’s video, you can’t see that the house is actually pie slice shape – narrow at one end but it gradually gets wider.

It’s actually known locally as Pie House because of the layout.

It’s not currently on the market but a previous listing from June this year says there’s actually 1600 square foot of living space.

Inside, there’s one bedroom upstairs and one in the basement and two and a half bathrooms.

In the comments on Eli’s video, a TikTok user with some knowledge of the house said that it ended up being that shape because it was built on a triangle lot.

The lot was sold cheaply because no one wanted it due to the shape and the owner who built the house in 2003 decided to maximise the shape.
