Not so tall story

  • Comment

Also spare a thought for the 69-yearold Japanese pensioner who commissioned a special house from builders because she is only 4ft 5ins tall.

They did not quite get the point, and gave her a house with features that were far too high - she could hardly see over the sink and definitely could not see out of the windows. Shimuzu Housing Corp paid out £26,000 in damages.
