With the biggest food themed holidays just around the corner, not many of us are focusing on skinny (there’s plenty of time for that in Januray)!  But it looks like “skinny” is a growing trend around the world as land becomes more scarce and people continue to downsize! Check out these “skinny” homes from around the world.

Amsterdam is no stranger to skinny housing and these homes are common through out the city. At one time, there was a tax based on the width of a property – thus inspiring a lot of folks to go up instead of out! To read more about each home, click the city name.
