    World


    On the outskirts of Sebastol, this small house has been a childhood dream for artist builder Jay Shafer that created it. The entire house has only 96 square feet, basically smaller than most of people’s bathrooms. It is equipped with a stainless-steel kitchen, customized storage and has a classy wood interior. The artist’ next dream is to create a community of such small houses, connected by walking paths, having the same shrunk size as the homes.

    World’s Biggest House

    On the other hand, the biggest house in the world belongs to royalty, as you might have guessed. The world’s biggest house is Windsor Castle, located in England, Berkshire, with a surface of around 484,000 square feet (about 45,000 square meters). Having its structure changed over the centuries, the castle now occupies 13 acres of land, having 1,000 rooms. Along with Buckingham Palace in London and Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, Windsor Castle is one of the principal official residences of the British monarch. The resident is Queen Elizabeth II that made the castle her home beginning with 1952.

    14. allelley says on January 17, 2011 at 1:10 pm:

      it isnt a house, its a castle.

    15. Kail says on February 17, 2011 at 5:24 pm:

      I don’t think that I would feel comfortable in a house that big. But I’m 6 foot 2, so I don’t want the tiny house. Something in between would be nice, and way far away from the big castle. The little one is adorable, though!

    16. Ciara says on March 2, 2011 at 12:37 am:

      I like the big house because it is beatiful

    17. Billon says on March 6, 2011 at 5:29 am:

      the big house dosn’t even look like a house it looks like a princess castle.

    18. Jasmine says on April 14, 2011 at 2:36 am:

      I like the big house but it might be scary at night.

    19. Dani says on July 13, 2011 at 6:39 pm:

    22. lily says on January 1, 2013 at 9:28 am:

      my house is the biggest of all of these houses :)

    23. Emily says on January 27, 2013 at 11:55 am:

      I would love to live in that house. I have a house that every body thinks is big but after they see that house they will change there mind. The small one is just cute. But to small for me but if I had to live in it then I guess I wouldn’t be mad but crowded.
