These days, you can pretty much have anything delivered to your home from Amazon. From liquor to baby diapers to…A tiny house? Yes, you heard that right! Now you can order a pre-fabricated tiny home off of Amazon.
The tiny 320-square-foot home, manufactured by MODS International, is made from a brand-new shipping container. Not only are shipping containers durable—built as they are to withstand rough conditions, such as being stacked on atop the other—but they are also leak-proof.
Although the square footage seems a bit tight – it is for most – the house is equipped with a bedroom, shower, toilet, sink, a small kitchenette and living area. All this can be yours for only $36,000 –
including the kitchen appliances, heating, and air conditioning.
Unfortunately, you cannot use Amazon Prime to have your new home shipped to you in 2 days for free. Instead, it will set you back a flat fee of $4,500. You’ll also need to either be a great builder or have a third party put it together for you.
The tiny houses arrive prefabricated and fully finished, and the manufacturer says the unit can be placed on either concrete sonotube footings or a solid concrete slab.
So far, the product only has two customer reviews on Amazon:
“I run an ocean shipping liner and built several offices and homes from 20′ and 40′ containers,” reads one review. “This one is excellent. Just a good empty containers costs about $10K and $30 plus isn’t much at all. You can move anywhere.”
“I have my eye on one for a hunting cabin in a very remote location where it is hard to haul in all the materials and erect it on site. This approach is comparable to stick construction but has superior security,” says another review.
