Buy A House On Amazon

Some Americans apparently love to fantasize about an extreme downsize that reduces their personal space to the bare minimum and slashes their cost of living to a fraction of what it once was. Hence, the rise of the tiny house trend.

If you already own a plot of land (or have plans to buy some) and are content with the tiny house lifestyle, you can in fact buy a home to live in on Amazon. If you have your heart set on buying a more traditional home from an individual seller or new housing development, then you really should stick with a platform like Orchard to find your next home.

Tiny houses rose in popularity during the 2008 financial crisis when unemployment rates soared and some found it hard to afford more traditional housing. Others like tiny houses because of their lower environmental impact. Not only is it cheaper to buy a tiny house, but it is much cheaper to pay for utilities, maintenance, and furnishing in such a small space.

While the homes for sale on Amazon are significantly cheaper than buying a normal house, you can still expect to make your biggest Amazon purchase yet. Their tiny houses (also known as container houses or cabin kits) tend to cost between $5,000 and $65,000. These homes are so affordable you may even be able to skip taking out a mortgage loan.

These days, it seems you can basically buy anything you want on the Internet - the online shopping market has been growing increasingly for the past few years, and while some are afraid to buy a pair of shoes online 'cause they might not fit, others are courageous enough to invest in an actual house and order it online. So, if you're one of the brave ones, make sure to check out this list of houses that are currently being sold on Amazon. Who knows, maybe you'll become a homeowner sooner than you expected?

Kit houses are also known as mail order homes or ready-cut houses and they were the most popular in the first half of the 20th century in the United States and Canada. These pre-cut houses are sold by various manufacturers and they come in different styles and plans. Once you order the house, you receive all the necessary materials as well as a construction plan of the house. It is important to mention that these houses usually do not include bricks, concrete, or masonry.

When it comes to pricing, the complete cost of building a kit house usually doubles the catalog price once the house is completely finished and this does not include the price of land. Despite this, building a kit house seems to still be significantly cheaper than a traditional one.

Most of the houses in the list are made out of glulam which is a glued laminated timder. Glulam has many advantages compared to other building materials, such as timber or log. As timber is chopped and glued together again, it eliminates defects and knots, making the surface quality very high. Glulam also offers strength that is 50-70% higher than regular timber. It also provides much better thermal insulation and structural stability.

Though not technically a prefab tiny home, it certainly looks like one. So if you're feeling creative and up to the task of transforming a cozy shed kit into a livable mini house, this just may be the perfect project for you. With wood siding and a resin roof, it is designed to last, so there's no need to be too precious with it.

Attention plant parents: It's time to get the greenhouse your trees, shrubs, and flowers deserve. Though this isn't exactly what comes to mind when we picture a traditional greenhouse (or a mini home, for that matter), we're loving the Colonial-style architecture and crisp white color, both of which instantly add a more elevated feel to your outdoor space. It also comes pre-cut, primed, and ready for paint.

Whether you use this prefab find as a garage, shed, or tiny house, you'll get some good use out of it because it's built to last. Not only are all of the parts dip-treated, which is a technique to preserve the wood, but it's also weather-resistant, so once this mini home goes up, it's not coming down. One word of warning: It requires a bit more work than some of the others on this list because it doesn't come with a door lock, floor, or foundation.

Hear us out: Your dog is a member of your family who, every now and then, may need to get away, just like you. So give your pooch their own little retreat. Crafted of solid pine, this weatherproof dog house will hold up under just about any weather conditions, so feel free to leave it out in the blazing sun and pouring rain. Maybe just don't leave your dog out there with it. Did we mention it also includes ventilation?

This elegant tiny house looks like something you'd see on the shores of Cape Cod or any other New England beach town. It's also quite easy to assemble, with pre-cut wood and two sets of operable windows. You can paint the siding any color your choose and the tiny house comes with an appearance package that helps you amp up the New England beach aesthetic.

Perfect for the shopper who wants to totally customize their new miniature abode, this DIY house allows the builder to choose the door location and add windows wherever they please. There are four sizes to choose from and you can opt for flooring included or no flooring.

It's not technically a tiny house, but this gingerbread playhouse was just too cute not to include! Give the little ones a tiny home of their own to play in. This option comes in 3 sizes: 8'x8', 8'x10', and 8'x12'.

When you think about building houses, you probably imagine careful planning, loads of materials and construction crews. Well, forget about all of that. Now you can simply pick out a house on Amazon and have one delivered to your doorstep!

Tiny homes have become increasingly popular in the past few years, whether that's because of rising costs of living or because they encourage minimalist living. Tiny homes make it possible to own your own property, even if that house measures only between 100 and 400 square feet.

But while constructing a functional housing unit may seem like a daunting task, Amazon has stepped in to make a hot millennial trend available to the masses by making these tiny homes easy to buy and simple to build. There are more than two dozen options on Amazon for DIY tiny-home kits, including 113-foot cabins at $5,350 and loft-bedroom houses at $20,000.

Adding a foundation made of gravel or concrete can help give a house a stable base, especially if you're trying to build a tiny house on grass (that can soften in the rain) or on ground that's not flat.

Arlanda is a garden house kit made from high quality Nordic wood. The modern cabin can also be set up on rooftops of multi-story buildings. Check local codes before purchasing any of the tiny houses in this gallery.

Our first entry on our list of options to buy a house on Amazon is pretty nice by any standards. These shipping containers are tiny prefab houses with windows and other features. This "pre-fabricated tiny home" can be yours for the low price of $36,000. Developed by the Wisconsin-based shipping container company MODS International, it comes "fully furnished" and can be moved immediately.

Every home comes wholly equipped with power and lighting. Your purchase is not the end of your communication with the company. Their standard shipping container tiny house measures 19.5 feet (5.95 m) long, 15.6 feet (4.76 meters) wide, and 8.3 feet (2.52 meters) tall, but you can customize it to your liking. Being derived from a shipping container, its external aesthetics are, as you would expect, true to its origins, but on the inside, it is a very different story.

According to their sales material, they "apply industry-leading environmentally friendly green materials" to provide the world's leading structural design[s]". Most of their products meet the strict requirements for CE, CNAS, BV, and ISO 9001 (and other relevant industry certifications). This container house is available here.

Do you want to buy a prefab module container home that comes with its power source? Then this container house is the perfect choice for you. You can specify it to be designed for other uses, so your options are not limited.

This container house is available here. Supplied and installed electrical equipment like lighting, a television, and a refrigerator have a total power consumption of 250w. According to the manufacturer, these can be used continuously for up to 32 hours straight. The final product is nicely designed, and its main building elements are made from composite fiberglass.

This tiny home (technically a refuge shelter) is fire-resistant but has no plumbing. Built and supplied by DuraMAX, this miniature house wouldn't be practical long-term. It is fire-resistant, made from galvanized steel, and has a versatile metal foundation, but it is designed and built as a temporary emergency or on-site shelter.

This shipping container house offers a snow load of 30 pounds per square foot (146.473 kg/m2) and is "one of the strongest do-it-yourself buildings" around. It is also very secure, supplied with a deadbolt lock that can be used on any side of the panel wall. An extension kit is available in 40" increments and mountable on either side.

It is advertised as a temporary living or emergency shelter as it is tiny, with a floor space of 12 m2. As such, it is more of a cellular office or single bedroom than a proper home. This container house is available here.

They come in various sizes, but you can request a custom one if their standard options don't work. Each shipping container house is easy to assemble, and their Amazon sales special mentions four skilled workers can make one in less than four hours.

If the MODS International shipping container house above is too big for your budget, you could always opt for its smaller 'brother'. The 20-foot (6 meters) option is more compact, as you'd expect, but has all the features you could need as a single person or young couple on a budget. 041b061a72
