Narrow house



This house has the world's narrowest front of only one metre wide. It is only one window wide. Its found on the Singel canal and is barely wider than the front door. However, the rear sections of the house expand to more the size of an ordinary house. Compressed between two other canalhouses, on the Singel a very narrow house is trying to survive. All canalboat tourguides will point out to this remarkably tiny house and just imagine how difficult it must be to decorate the house. Do you use children's furniture? Watching TV you might have to sit behind one another. We were lucky this last visit. A guy was sitting in the window of no 7, so now you can see better exactly where the place is.

Buildings - the smallest canalhouse

Compressed between two other canalhouses, on the Singel a very narrow house is trying to survive. All canalboat tourguides will point out to this remarkably tiny house and just imagine what rooms must be in here and how they are filled with what kind of furniture. Here the mother can never say to her child "don't sit to close to te television, my dear" as getting further away is just plain impossible.
