The thinnest house in Beirut, Lebanon, which measures around 60 centimeters at its narrowest and around 4 meters at its widest point, is called Al Ba’sa in Arabic which translates to The Grudge. 

According to the story well known for the locals, the house was built in the 1950s as an aftermath of a feud between two brothers. 

Back in the day, siblings inherited the land from their father. However, they couldn’t agree on what to build on the land. 

The argument was made even worse when one portion of the land was cut off by various municipal infrastructure projects, leaving it oddly shaped and close to the road.

The brother to whom the oddly-shaped land belonged decided to build the extremely narrow, yet habitable structure.

Why? Well, as it turns out, the large building was in a perfect location to block the million-dollar-view to the sea, which previously could be easily seen from the house of his brother.
