Someone built the smallest condo in Vancouver... and we still can’t afford it (VIDEO)

The smallest condo in Vancouver is fit for a mouse -literally.

This extremely tiny one-bedroom “apartment” is built inside the wall of a Vancouver-home and given the city’s skyrocketing real estate prices, you still probably couldn’t afford this hole-in-the-wall.

But, it turns out there is a very cute back story to this Vancouver mouse house.

A Vancouver man had the brilliant idea of tricking his young daughters that a mouse had moved permanently into their home.

The man turned to the expertise of his colleague Michael Anthony Sorgiovanni who built a real-life tiny mouse condo inside the wall of their family’s home. 

“A little after work project for my bosses kids who think a mouse lives in the house. They’re on vacation and their dad told them a small delivery came for the mouse. Couple hours later, I built a little mouse condo into the walls,” wrote Sorgiovanni on Instagram. 

Sorgiovanni managed to make the mouse-house extremely realistic as it comes with a tiny bed, dressers, and a miniature lighting fixture. In fact, it’s much nicer than a lot of human-sized places for rent in Vancouver.

A camera was placed inside the mouse-house to record the man’s daughters’ reactions to finding out the mouse had permanently moved in, and it’s adorable.

The mouse also left a small letter to the girls to explain who he is, and why he moved in.

“My name is Michael the Mouse, you can call me Mikey. (Not Micky!) I used to live in the forest of Caulfeild School but after visiting your house a few times over the past year I have decided to move in permanently,” said the letter.

“I work every day at the cheese market at Granville Island Market. I get up very early and come home late. So don’t worry, I won’t disturb you.”

In all seriousness, Michael the Mouse seems like the perfect tenant.

We’re still not sure how much rent Micheal the Mouse pays, but this mouse-house could be the solution to Vancouver’s real-estate problems… that is, if you can fit inside.
