At 47 Inches Wide, This Is the World's Skinniest House

At just 47 inches wide—and 27 inches at its narrowest point—the "Keret House" is so thin it's not even considered a real building by Polish standards. Designed by architect Jakub Szczesny of Centrala, the residence is wedged between two buildings and has three levels, with a bedroom, bathroom, and office area. Electricity will be borrowed from a building nearby and the off-grid plumbing system is inspired by boat water systems. At first it will be inhabited by Israeli writer and the building's namesake Etgar Keret, and then used by artists, writers, and other creatives as an installation and workspace.

Backyard Box. These small, well-designed little backyard houses are actually much better looking and more detail oriented than a basic box, without forsaking the modern, prefab style. Backyard Box, a company based in Seattle, designs and builds small prefab houses that can be used in many ways: as a rental income property, guest house, home office, mother-in-law apartment or a tiny house.

The smallest design is the MatchBox, a studio that packs a kitchen, living room and bath into 400 square feet. It can fit into a lot that is 17 by 27 feet and starts at $79,500. A larger design is the SandBox, a one story backyard cottage with kitchen, living room, bathroom and one bedroom. Haute Design by Sarah Klassen: Architecture: Andersson-Wise.

Portfolio: Andersson-Wise / Part One: Stone Creek Camp I came across the work of this amazing studio a short while ago, and couldn't wait to share some of their projects. Modern Masonry: Cool Concrete Cabin + Warm Wood Patio. We tend to think of wood as a warm material appropriate to indoor spaces of a home and concrete in terms of cold building blocks best left to the driveway paving, retaining walls or an outdoor porch. This minimalist modern cabin reverses these conventions, with board-formed concrete shaping each room and wooden planks kept to outdoor deck spaces – and the effect is surprisingly comfortable-looking.

Stamped with the grain of the wood slats between which they were poured, the seamed concrete stripes along the walls and ceiling inside give the house a nice fine-grained scale of detail as well as a pleasing texture to the touch. Stairs, countertops and other elements fold and flow smoothly from the walls themselves, carefully planned by BAK Architects and constructed my masters of the material (with which crisp corners and sharp intersections are incredibly difficult to create). Evergreen homes: The Method Cabin. Similar to May and June’s installments of “Evergreen Homes” — a series of monthly posts in which I spotlight great green homes from my home state of Washington — I’m moving away from the green building hotbed of Seattle to feature projects further afield in locales like the San Juan Islands and Walla Walla.

For this month’s installment, I’m featuring a home — a prefab cabin, to be exact — located in the teeny-tiny (population = 90) but frequently traveled-through former mining outpost known as Glacier. Located near the summit of mighty Mount Baker on Washington State Scenic Byway Highway 542, the town of Glacier is flooded with outdoor recreation enthusiasts who flock to the area on a year-round basis to ski, snowboard, sled, climb, camp, hike, bike, raft, fish, forage for mushrooms, take mushrooms, or just take in the truly spectacular wilderness of the Mt-Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

As mentioned, today’s featured “Evergreen Home” is indeed a cabin. Recent "Evergreen homes": Kona Residence.

Imagine the renovation dilemmas. A huge penthouse of a converted 1930s office building in TriBeCa, New York, is to be turned into a functioning home for a family with three teenagers. In fact, we can not quite imagine the issues that faced Steven Harris Architects when the family showed up, literally, at the doorstep of the celebrated architect and asked if he’d like to work on their home. Harris said yes and proceeded to make his magic. Kindergarten Centered Around a Legendary Tree. The Armada House. Containers of Hope, a $40,000 Home by Benjamin Garcia Saxe.
