Many people dream of having a bigger home. You’ll even hear people complain about their tiny New York City apartments that are costing them a fortune.
But in some places around the world, housing space can be super tiny.
You wouldn’t believe the tight and cramped spaces some people are living in. Some of the 10 apartments we’re about to show you are even smaller than a jail cell.
Here Are 10 Of The Tiniest Apartments You’ve Ever Seen:
