UK building Europe's smallest homes

It comes as no surprise that UK homes have been classified as the smallest in Europe.
I remember looking around one new house that called itself a 'two bed'. The second bedroom was 5'6'' across... I'm 6'2'', now that doesn't fit.

The research from the University of Cambridge found the average new build property covered just 76 square metres. That might sound spacious for one, but that's a squeeze for a family of four, as for the dog, he's going to have to go to the 'dog house'.

The building of smaller and smaller homes has bought the average UK property down to 85 square metres.

One animal is celebrating. Incidents of cats getting swung about have fallen for another year.

Following the release of the research, fresh calls have been made for the mandatory inclusion of floor areas to be included on property sales details. You have to list the weight of a packet of cornflakes so it would make sense to know just how much property you were buying.
