In the depths of Amazon, you can shop for just about anything. A balloon arch kit for an upcoming birthday party? Check. A new summer wardrobe? Check. A tiny house for your backyard? Yes, Amazon has tiny homes for sale too.
The tiny home movement might have peaked after several popular TV shows began airing, like HGTV’s “Tiny House, Big Living” and FYI Network’s “Tiny House Nation,” but some are still obsessed with the small way of life, downsizing to save money or to travel the world.
If you’ve always dreamt of having your own tiny home, Amazon can now make that happen — right in your backyard.
You might be imagining an Amazon Prime delivery truck pulling up with a tiny home hitched to the back, but you do have to put a little elbow grease into these homes. This tiny house comes in the form of a kit that includes all the materials you need to build the structure, which is estimated to take about one week to complete with two adults assembling.
During construction, you can decide between two floorplans for the 540-square-foot cabin, which includes the option of either five or three rooms. But don’t worry, there’s also a 218-square-foot second story to use as an additional sleeping area.
All of the materials are made from Allwood’s high-quality Nordic spruce wood, which you can see inside the living room, bathroom and one of the bedrooms below.
While all of the “do-it-yourself directions” come with the kit and only “minimal tools are needed,” the company does recommend a forklift or a small crane to use for its installation.
It might seem crazy, but you can live out your tiny home dreams thanks to Amazon. But if you do happen to buy the Avalon below as your next DIY project, just know it may take up to three to five weeks to ship (we can only imagine why). Happy building!
