Toronto's Tiniest Home Is Only Seven Feet Wide (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

One of Toronto's best-known little secrets is the pocket neighborhood on Craven Road. But it's the Little House, reportedly Toronto's tiniest home, that perpetually grabs the spotlight.

This 312-square-foot abode was built back in 1912 by Arthur Weeden. According to The Little House blog, Weeden got the idea after noticing that the curb of the space, which was supposed to be a driveway, was never cut. Over the years, the home has been sold and bought by different people, including a family of four that once lived here. In 2008, comedian Ellen DeGeneres even expressed interest (serious or not) in it when it was for sale.

The home itself actually has a surprisingly spacious feeling to it, except in the bedroom, where the murphy bed takes up the whole room -- but hey it does have a neat little backyard.

Scroll to see photos of this place and watch the video above to see DeGeneres chat about it. And be sure to head over to The Little House blog and the Owner Builder Network for more information.
