Tiny houses: You either love them or you hate them. They’re affordable, portable and often remarkably attractive. But they’re also crowded and cramped and require endless knowledge of regulation in order to make sure you have the right permits for where you park it. But if you’re ready to simplify your life and willing to take on the challenge of learning the ins and outs of tiny life, the biggest hurdle is probably finding your itty-bitty dream home.
If you’ve been watching back-to-back reruns of Tiny House Hunters and dreaming of your own tiny home, the dream might be closer than you think. Giant online retailer Amazon actually sells these pre-fab homes, and they’re cuter than you might expect, and many of them even offer free shipping — no small thing when you’re transporting an entire house. Most of the homes lean more to the rustic than modern side. A few offer gorgeous patios that make the idea of 400 square feet indoors more appealing. And while some of them aren’t much more than a frame, several have more than one room and even the ever-sought-after bathroom.
Although they’re not Prime eligible (which will hopefully keep you from impulse buying one immediately and having to explain it to your very grumpy spouse when courier shows up at your door), they’re still a pretty sweet deal and something to consider if you want to take a big leap into a tiny house.
