Tiny House on Capitol Hill

Tiny House on Capital Hill

“The house is nine feet wide and one short-stack story tall,” wrote Gene Weingartgen “and it stands out from the other houses on the block like a Barbie doll in a police lineup.” That was in 2009, when a neighbor bought the place as a rental property. Well, actually she bought it because she lives next door and didn’t want another owner building a second storey and blocking her view. But she does rent it out.

The 252-square-foot place is vacant again, and you can rent it for a mere $1200 per month. Let’s take the video tour:

Gene Weingarten exaggerated; the place is a roomy nine-and-a-half feet wide, and a whole 28 feet long. It does have off-street parking, which in this neighborhood rents for about $200 a month per space and adds as much as $50K to a home’s sale price.
