A Suburban Chicago Home Has Become Known Locally As The “Pie House”

A suburban Chicago home has become known locally as the “Pie House” because of its resemblance to a wedge-shaped slice of pie.

Built in 2003, on an oblong plot of land in Deerfield, Illinois, the Pie House has become somewhat of a local tourist attraction, with people stopping by regularly just to take pictures of the unusually narrow building.

Famous for its unique shape, the Pie House was born out of necessity, as developer Greg Weissman tried to make the best of an oblong piece of land only 0.09 acres in size, which is unusually small for the suburbs.

Despite one of the walls being only 91-cm-wide, the Pie House turned out quite cozy, and ended up selling for little over $284,000 in 2007.
