I’m sure you know you that Amazon is an online retailer where you can can get anything from a pin to an anchor. It just never occurred to me that you could actually buy a house on there.
Now Amazon is not a real estate broker so you can buy a house with a physical street address. What you can get though, is everything you need to build your own tiny house.
There is no set definition for a tiny house as they vary from place to place, but it is generally accepted that tiny homes are those less than 400 sq ft. You can build one on a plot of land or you can get one on wheels so you don’t have to be tied to one location. Tiny houses on wheels though similar to recreational vehicles (RVs), aren’t RVs and are covered different regulations.
In fact, they are covered by different covenants and zoning laws, so if you ever opt to get one, be sure to look into all of that so you don’t find yourself in breach. Also be sure to consider other problems that may pop such as – not enough storage space during a pandemic or having nowhere to park or not being able to live in it full-time, in some neighbourhoods.
But if you do opt to get one, you can engage a contractor or open your Amazon app and purchase a tiny home kit. I saw one option to buy a 40ft container! I mean, that’s not so tiny nor is it mobile, but it has all you need to function as a home. I also saw several cabin-type kits, which you can use as a tiny home, or guest house on your own property. Most of these kits come with fitting for insulation, electrical wiring and plumbing – but read the fine print to make sure you have all you need.
With all that said, would you buy one of these kits or opt for a contractor or try to do it yourself? Have you ever considered a tiny house? Do you live in one? Tell me about it!
