It’s surprising what you can do with a small space, as this tiny house proves.
The 8ft-wide former workshop in East Dulwich, London, has been converted into a two bedroom house with an open plan kitchen and a garden.
The former workshop has a new, industrial inspired interior. But the most notable feature? The compact property is arranged vertically, and it's narrower than a London bus.
Measuring exactly 8.1ft wide, it's just shy of the width of a new Routemaster bus (which comes in at 8ft and 3.25 inches wide).

The property might raise some eyebrows outside the city, as the Dulwich dwelling comes with a price tag of £600,000, but the two bedroom home offers open plan living and a secluded south facing rear garden in the heart of East Dulwich.
The property has retained its original workshop door, and a manicured entrance opens straight into the open plan kitchen and entertaining area.
Floor to ceiling Crittall doors open onto a secluded south facing rear garden, and flood the ground floor space with natural daylight.
Wood decking outside gives the garden a clean look, while tall border fences give plenty of privacy from neighbouring properties.
As the property is just over 8 ft wide, you may have to get creative with your furniture choices.
The listing shows that despite its size, the living room still manages to fit in a sofa, armchair, table and TV.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, complete with grey-painted wooden floors and antique-style cast-iron radiators, as well as a recently updated shower room.
Despite the compact size of the bedroom spaces, both feature French doors onto balconies, one facing the street and one facing the garden.
The white bedroom schemes help to make the compact bedrooms feel more spacious, as the white colour bounces light around the room to make it feel brighter and airier.
With sleek materials, a grey colour palette throughout and a cool Crittall patio door leading right out on the contemporary south-facing decked rear garden, the home is a textbook example of industrial chic.
The property is 0.8 miles to East Dulwich Station and 1.4 miles to Peckham Rye, and it's close to the cafes, bars and restaurants on Lordship Lane.
Christopher Burton, Head of Knight Frank’s Dulwich office commented, “This great little house offers a south facing garden, carefully considered layout and modern design features.”
