The Tiniest Home in Toronto

“With a footprint of just 29 square metres, (312 sq. ft.) the house is officially the smallest in the city.…the home was shoehorned into the space between two existing properties by Arthur Weeden, a contractor…The tiny parcel of land was originally marked out for laneway access but somehow the curb stones were never lowered to allow vehicular access, rendering the gap useless.

Weeden pounced, building a pint-sized home, barely an arm’s span wide, for him and his wife. They lived there together for 20 years, content in the tiny space, tending to their vegetable garden and bunking down for the night in the single rear bedroom behind the kitchen.…”

  1. Within the article linked to above is a link to the house's website. But when I clicked on it, I got a message that said, "Bandwidth Limit Exceeded. The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to the site owner reaching his/her bandwidth limit. Please try again later." I guess it's appropriate that a house with limited room has limited bandwidth. Nyuk-nyuk.

    thanks to Canadian building regulations,

    if you listen to the video, they say it is law right across Canada that all housing have electricity for smoke detectors and air circulation.

    I don't think that is accurate?
