WARSAW, Poland » The new house is only four-feet wide, but it comes with a bathroom, a kitchen and a bedroom, and its first tenant will move in this weekend.

Architect Jakub Szczesny designed the two-story aluminum and plastic house three years ago and it's been built in a narrow space between a pre-war house and a modern apartment block in downtown Warsaw.

The Foundation of Polish Modern Art helped him fund it.

At a news conference today, they said the first tenant will move in Saturday: Etgar Keret, an Israeli writer whose ancestors died in Poland during the Holocaust.

But other tenants will follow in a building considered an art work.
