The World's Smallest Detached House
This is Thimble Hall, the "The World's Smallest Detached House," per the authority on such things, the Guinness Books of World Records. It is in in Youlgreave, England, and is eleven-feet-ten-inches by ten-feet-three-inches by twelve-feet-two-inches. It was purchased in 1999 by the local (Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England) ice cream maker, Frederick's. It is under renovation and will be a little gallery for local high-quality crafts. It will also have a thimble display. Yay!
