In terms of shape, a very interesting street-end terraced single-family house built in the 1970s. The investor bought this house, hoping that having very detailed plans, so unusual for that time, there should be no doubts about the quality. The doubts, however, arose fast because the original owners probably used all the material that could be considered to be a bearing structure for the building, committing various static hazards, bordering on absolute madness. Therefore, firstly it was necessary to find out how the house held together making sure not just with the power of the will of the original owners. This was followed by the preparation of project documents and actual construction; the vertical interconnection posed an interesting element. In its widest point the house is about 5 m; however, the existing connecting staircase took up 1/5 of the width. There is one underground floor and three aboveground floors. The basement now accommodates technical facilities and a temporary residential space. There is a hall and one room for the oldest child, already studying at university, on the ground floor. Other floors provide space for the rest of the family with a small child.
