Amazon prides itself on being the go-to easy-to-use online marketplace for everything you need — and that apparently includes tiny houses.
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.
Surprisingly, some of the Amazon listings say these tiny homes can be built in as little as two days with two people.
