Narrow house opening as art work in Warsaw

Workers adjust a gate in front of one of the world’s narrowest houses, in Warsaw, Poland, Friday, Oct. 19, 2012. The two-level “Keret’s House” is no wider than 122 centimeters (48.03 inches) and was fitted into tiny space puzzlingly left between a pre-war house and a modern apartment block of the 1960s in downtown Warsaw. It is named after Etgar Keret, an Israeli writer of Polish roots who will be the first inhabitant of this artistic project of aluminum and polycarbonate. (AP Photo/Alik Keplicz)The new house is only four feet wide (1.2 meters), but it comes with a bathroom, a kitchen and a bedroom, and its first tenant, an Israeli writer, will move in this weekend.
