Tiny houses were definitely a trend this past few years as some people struggle to afford traditional houses or simply don't want to. But did you know that you can order a Garden House from Amazon and have it delivered at your front door (with free shipping too!) ?
The house only takes approximately 8 hours to assemble and you can do it yourself with your partner. Amazon describe the Garden House Allwood Solvalla as a 172 square foot Studio Cabin Kit - Garden House and claims that two adults can assemble the kit in just 8 hours. It's a good option for a guest house or a home office away from the kids!
Unfortunately this purchase is not available with a Amazon Prime option so it will take you more than 2 days to receive it. But since the Garden House is actually two separate 86 sq. ft. structures connected together, you will probably not even need a permit if you live in a place where the limit by law is 100 sq. ft. but it is always best to double check with your local building authority.
The kit includes all the parts and hardware that you will need, except some minimal tools that you probably already have at home. You also have different options for the foundation to choose from; gravel with timbers, gravel with cinder blocks or a cement slab. However, roofing tiles are not included and you will need to get those on your own.
Is this a project that will interest you? The final result is actually very impressive and it will cost you less than $8,000! The least expensive option starts in the $5,000 range and the most expensive is $7,250.
Will you be building your own house anytime soon?
