Mini-manse

The New York Times writes about the “Spite House,” an intriguing 1830 house in Alexandria, Va., that is only 7 feet wide. Be sure to check out the slideshow.

I can see the charm in such a modest abode, particularly since it’s still got some outside space. It would certainly make housekeeping more manageable!

    Don’t be so sure about the housekeeping. My aunt lived in a little crackerbox, too. That didn’t keep the dustbuffalos and clutter away!
