Slimmest timer house world-wide?

There is some probability that the slimmest timber house world-wide is located in the Zurich Oberland. I found the below bijou villa by chance when driving in the hills East of the Töss river near the village of Sternenberg.

The width of the small house is less than 3 feet. Striking is the air space between the main walls and the roof. Possibly this is attributed to a novel advanced ventilation system. Worth to mention is also the rustic storefront.

I was keen to learn about the vanguard architect.  Unfortunately, nobody answered when knocking on the windows.  At home, when having a closer look at the pictures, I realised that the house was not uninhabitated. To be disclosed by the next blog entry ..
