The real estate market has changed due to the pandemic, and people are buying properties while the rates are low. If you have been looking around for a new home, one of the things that you probably look for is square footage. The last thing that you would really consider is if the house was super skinny, but we all know that looks can be deceiving.

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to actually visit a house in person after you looked at pictures online, you know that the pictures are quite flattering. In suburban Chicago, one of those pictures was the Pie House, which became famous after a TikTok video showed up online.

When you first look at the house, it is impressive, but as he steps around to the side, the video tells a different tale.

TikTok users have a lot to say about the skinny house. One thought that you could just push it over and another one was curious how you would get upstairs.

When you look at the pictures below, you get a better picture of what is actually going on. It shows you more than the outside, it shows you the inside of the home. If you thought that the outside of the house was surprising, wait until you see the inside.

The Pie House sold for $260,000 on August 6, 2020. Inside of the home, you will find 1600 ft.² of living space, including the basement. It is a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom home.

The home was built in 2003. The roof is relatively new and it has hardwood floors throughout. It is also in Deerfield, a nice location in the Chicago area.
