You can buy a tiny house kit from several online sites, but Amazon? Yes you can.
Not bad for starting at about $5,000 for a house kit. Unless you lived in a warm area year-round, you would need to insulate. But for a starter home, this is intriguing. These lack the wheels that a tiny house kit might come with, but if you have a specific piece of land in mind, it works.
Several of the designs look like they are intended as backyard cabins, but I’ve looked at several of the designs and they could work for full time living. The big challenge would be siting a bathroom within the structure, but if you like the outdoors, how about an outdoor shower and outhouse?
What I do like is the simple way to locate the kit house on cinder blocks. So you could move this on the back of a flatbed tow truck to a new location. Many of the tiny houses are limited by the wheelbase of the trailer they are built on.
The Allwood brand kits have siding that lock into the next board, making the build pretty easy. Not sure how much cutting is involved.
This would probably have more appeal if you are looking for a seasonal tiny house, instead of an all season house. Put this up on a piece of land and spend long summer weekends. Run some solar and collect rainwater from the roof, you are good to go.
Since I already have a small-ish house, one of these kits would make a nice office, I’m thinking. What are you thinking? Let me know below.
