Now with the rise of the internet, the DIY home building market game has changed.
You can buy just about anything on Amazon – including a house. Amazon has tiny houses for sale, and below are five of them that you can buy online.
ALLWOOD AVALON CABIN KIT
Back in the day, the tiny house concept was found in a catalog – you’d choose your look, have the pieces shipped to where you want them, then assemble the home yourself. Now with the rise of the internet, the DIY home building market game has changed. Allwood is an online retailer which sells a variety of home products from personal saunas to full wood cabins. Their Avalon Cabin includes everything you need to assemble your home yourself, including the windows, doors, as well as nails and screws. And for $33,900 you can’t beat the price, even if it’s self-assembled.
SARACEN OUTDOORS TIMBER HOUSE
While it contains the name “timber” in it, it’s actually made from two shipping containers that are sent to your build site. It takes the complication out of building it yourself step by step, but you will still need to do some assembling just in terms of hooking up your electrical and plumbing, as well as installing the stairs that connect the two containers. However, the Timber House will already arrive with everything else in place. And it’s only $75,000 on Amazon.
WEIZHENGHENG EXPANDABLE CONTAINER HOUSE
This container-style home is from the manufacturer Weizhengheng and is a flat-pack modular prefab home. The easy-to-follow instructions will guide you in putting together the walls, as well as the kitchen, bathroom, and solar power system. It’s a true tiny house since it’s only around 152 square feet, but it has features that make the place feel spacious – like the expanding room that converts to a bedroom at night. There is also an attached deck that has an awning, which helps to create a relaxed outdoor environment. If you’re wondering cost, Amazon sells it for only $36,000.
TITAN PARK MODEL HOMES TINY HOME
This tiny house is from the Titan Park Model Homes, and it plays with the traditional idea of tiny houses but adds an extra layer of glamour to the concept. The home is built on a trailer bed, so you can take it wherever you go. The stylishly sloped roof creates a spacious front porch area outside, as well as dramatically high ceilings inside. There are other touches like crown molding, a full kitchen, and huge windows to let in plenty of natural light, which make this 399 square foot home feel very spacious and bright. Where else will you find luxury for only $64,900?
BANTAM BUILT TINY HOUSE ON WHEELS
Another little house on wheels, this Bantam Built home is a little smaller but can still offer the basic comforts of home like a bathroom and private bedroom. The exterior of the home creates an industrial, contemporary look by combining corrugated steel and wood siding. The inside of the home has a kitchenette with a built-in booth which can be converted to a bonus bed for guests. This little house on wheels is also RVIA-certified, meaning that it is fully street legal. Bantam has also left out the loft that is usually found in most mobile tiny houses, so when towing you don’t have to be worried about clearance heights. You can pick it up on Amazon for $49,995.
SMART SOLAR STUDIO CUBE
If you don’t necessarily want to live in an entire tiny house but maybe want to free up some space for a backyard office, art studio, or quiet place for contemplation, then you can go on Amazon to purchase the Smart Solar Studio Cube. It is a compact what box that arrives pre-assembled and ready for use. The cube is solar-powered and features a wall of glass that lets in maximum natural light. The glass doors also fold open in order to create an open air space. If you want a working space you can attack a deck to it. It’s very minimalist in style, so you can have fun decorating it to your own taste in order to go along with whatever you need it to be. And you can purchase it for $79,000 on Amazon.
So how that you’ve seen some of what Amazon has to offer in terms of tiny houses, it’s very tempting to say “screw it” to the housing market prices and not delay buying your dream house now. The only real question is, do these homes qualify for Amazon Prime?
