At First Glance It Looks Like A Plain Old Tiny House, But Look A Little Closer…

LittleThings has seen its share of strange houses.

We’ve seen triangle-shaped houses, houses in the shape of a cross, and even houses resembling Hobbit holes.

Of course, followers of the Tiny House Movement have been embracing a different kind of abode for some time now. They’re embracing living life with less clutter in tiny spaces that give them just enough space for the things they need.

The house featured below is actually one of the tiniest we’ve seen. In fact, it’s wildly uncomfortable for most adults. If you’re larger than five feet tall, you’re going to be crouching in this house.

This bizarre house has actually become a bit of a tourist attraction in New Jersey for its odd name, strange design, and peculiar past.

In fact, its current owner didn’t even know the house was part of her property when she purchased her lot. It sits in the back of her house lot and it wasn’t mentioned in any of the house listings. It wasn’t until she signed the papers, that she found out about this tiny house.

Anna Jones bought her house 15 years ago, and it was only then that she noticed the property had a smaller replica of her house in the back.

Unfortunately, as the house gained a lot of interest from New Jersey locals, they gave it the politically incorrect, pejorative nickname "Brick Midget House."

If that seems like a waste of the space, you can do something about it. The house is now up for sale!

It would be great to find this one-of-a-kind home an owner who can really utilize it to its full potential.

The house did see some damage from Hurricane Sandy, but a little elbow grease could turn it into something incredible once again.
