12 Kit Homes You Can Actually Buy on Amazon

view original post

Whether it’s to sleep, work, or build, there are plenty of reasons to add a tiny home to your yard. Kit homes make it simpler than ever to build an outdoor structure. They’re essentially tiny homes in a box, arriving with the necessary parts to build a little abode on your property. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any easier, Amazon will deliver one right to your door.

Keep in mind that most Amazon kit homes only come with the necessary structural pieces. The actual building, as well as wiring, plumbing, and decorating, will need to be done on-site. Many of these kit homes are more comparable to the best outdoor sheds rather than an actual house, so they might not be the most substantial structures. They’re still useful though, and considering their reasonable price point, one of these Amazon kit homes will be worth your while.

Like many modern sheds, it’s constructed of ultraviolet-protected plastic walls, so it’s super easy to put together. Due to its large size (15 feet long by 8 feet wide), it has steel supports for added sturdiness.

It’s a bare-bones kit, so you’ll want to buy the floor, windows, and shingles separately. It also doesn’t come decorated, so it will take a bit of extra work to get the advertised barn appearance.

The addition of windows with decorative shutters and flower boxes makes it look more like a tiny home rather than a boat shed.

Since it’s a gazebo, it’s less sturdy of a structure than some comparable home kits (like wooden sheds). It has plastic screen walls mounted on an aluminum frame, which provide wind and rain resistance while letting in lots of light.
