Tiny World is the work of one man, Ernest Helm, who began building small structures on his property in the '80s. Matt's doing this for scale. So you get a sense of just how tiny Tiny World is. Helm built the first Tiny World building for his cats, as a place to have a home similar to a human home. There are still many cats on the property -- the afternoon that Matt visited, one drooling cat appeared out of nowhere and spooked us all. These are definitely not regualr-sized houses; they are tiny.
