SKINNY HOUSE
708 Gladys Ave. (1932)

Designer/Builder: Newton Rummond

The 10' X 50' lot was acquired by Newton Rummond as payment for a $100 debt in 1931 during the Depression. Rummond designed and built the "skinny house" as a bet. It is a three-story English Tudor Revival design, one room wide and as compact inside as a ship, containing 860 sq. ft. There is a deck on the third story. A unique architectural oddity.
