Dreaming of your own house but too burdened with student loan debt to even entertain the idea?
Well now you can — thanks to this super cute tiny house!
This “garden house” by Allwood can be converted into a studio, guesthouse, garden house, pool house or just a tiny house.
The house kit can be assembled in just 8 hours by two able adults and be purchased via Amazon.
“[The] Solvalla garden house kit is made from high quality solid Nordic wood,” the company posted on its website. “This timeless design is an alternative to classic log cabin styled structures. It works well in a variety of surroundings and can be a guesthouse, home office, granny flat, or even a retail space. Versatile Solvalla can also be set up on rooftops of multi-story buildings. Assembly of this solid wood structure takes a full day for two adults. Do it yourself simple step-by-step directions come with the kit and only minimal tools are needed.”
The company designed easy step-by-step direction, saying that “only minimal tools are needed.”
The total floor area is about 172 square feet, with the structure weighing in at 2480 lbs.
While Amazon has been selling the product like hot cakes — it continues to dip into and out of being available due to the high demand.
The only things you will not be able to find in the kit are roof shingles and foundation materials but Allwood estimates they will cost around $150 to $170 in total.
And while there is no bathroom, Allwood does say that “adding one is not difficult” as you can purchase DIY indoor bathroom kits as well.
If you do want to add HVAC or electricity to this DIY home, you will need to figure out how to do that yourself as they are not included in the kit.
While there are a few cons of living in a tiny house like space there are also huge benefits of going “small.”
People who reside in tiny homes love to speak out their many benefits, saying that living tiny has made their lives better.
This includes lower expenses, no mortgage, lower energy use, freedom of movement, easier movement, harmony with nature as well as a simpler life.
Some tiny house owners even decide to live close to each other — forming tiny house communities with multiple houses parked together on a single lot.
In Portland, Oregon, there is a group of four tiny houses parked behind a full-sized house named the Simply Home Community.
The four owners met each other through a group for tiny house owners in Portland and decided to shop together for a house with a large yard where they could keep all their “tinies.”
They eventually purchased a house and went through a long but worthwhile process of extending the houses pluming and power lines into the back yard for the tiny houses.
