Tiny house in Toronto

“Built in 1912 by…contractor Arthur Weeden… it’s the smallest house in all of Toronto…One day, Weeden noticed the tiny open lot on Day Avenue that was tucked between two existing houses and decided to build on it.…

After he finished building the house, which is on a lot that was originally intended to serve as a small thruway for cars between these two existing houses, Weeden lived in it for twenty years with his wife.…”
