May 24 - Amazon is selling entire houses for less than $20,000 — with free shipping
 

 
There are a number of strange but intriguing cabins and homes for sale on the internet giant — their prices may be shockingly low, but there are often additional costs and significant downsides

Residential builders have found a new home: Amazon.

Prefabricated and modular housing — with homes prebuilt in factories — is having another moment. From 2013 to 2018, industry revenue grew an annualized 8.6% to nearly $10.5 billion, including growth of 4.1% in 2018 alone, according to research firm IBISWorld.

Previously a*sociated with Dwell and other shelter magazines and websites, these often-tiny homes have now hit Amazon AMZN+1.13% in a big way — and are apparently selling out there. Indeed, multiple news outlets, including real-estate sites Curbed and the Real Deal, reported that one 172-square-foot, $7,250 prefab cabin, which the manufacturer claims can be built in eight hours and ships free from Amazon, had sold out. (Reports that the home was back in stock followed, as did some consumer warnings and social snickering.)

And it’s not the only home for sale on the internet giant — and some can even become full-time residences. “I’m not surprised to see [homes for sale on Amazon],” says Trae Bodge, a shopping expert at TrueTrae.com, as “selling these homes online presents a new level of opportunity for the retailer to reach consumers who are outside of their local area.” Here are a few homes for sale on Amazon — ranging in price from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands.

The company says that this 292-square-foot cabin (the square footage does not include its sleeping loft) “is large enough to function as a summer house, home office or even a stand-alone retail building” and that “by adding the utility hookups this cabin can be converted to a residence.” Of course, that will cost extra, and the company notes that if you live in a cooler climate you’ll need to add insulation. Two adults can a*semble this home in two or three days, the company says.

This modern-style structure made of northern spruce was “designed as a lounge” that “can be used as a house with a lot of flexibility in terms of interior layout.” The company notes that an “experienced architect can turn this into a permanent facility.” That’s an additional cost, of course.

The 113-square-foot Lillevilla Escape, for about $5,000

The company says that this cabin is better suited as a structure for your “hobby, garden or pool tools and supplies” or as “simply a retreat in your backyard.” And like most of these homes, that low price (though, again, it does include free shipping) is just a starting point — should you want to add insulation, that will be extra, as will a foundation.

Look at the square footage. 172 square feet is smaller than a studio apartment.
It's not the playa lyfe. I'm a playa, I need at least 1,500 square feet.


Just kidding. I'm not a playa, but I want to live in a regular-sized house and stuff.

Would be a nice fit in my parent's lot. If my lot was bigger, I'd consider this for a bootleg man cave.

That makes sense, it's a man-cave sized room, not a house in and of itself, unless you are a midget.

Or for any children in our generation that can't figure themselves out and need a place to live, but are ashamed to live at home with their parents.

If this can be approved with a permit (my guess would be additional permits for structural support (concrete + rebar, if needed) and grading, it can potentially increase the value of your home and included in the appraised value.

Bout to send this too my folks. They’re looking to built a tiny home on there property. If it’s cheaper then going through a contractor then this might be a steal.

Uncle bought a prefab cabin for his property in Lake George. We are going to a*sembling the thing next month...should only take 2 weeks, doubt we will be able to do it in that time, but it would be nice experience
