Imagine living in a house so small you have to move your furniture in through the window.

That's what the owners of a Boston home were faced with when they bought the "skinniest" house in the city.

The couple now rents out the house as a vacation rental, but they warn travelers it's not for those who are claustrophobic.

At its narrowest point, the house is just 6.5 feet wide and only 30 feet long.

The house was built in 1862. Boston folklore says the house was originally built to block the view of a neighbor.
