You can now build an entire house yourself — and it only takes eight hours!
The kit, which has been getting major attention online, comes complete with everything you need to create a 172-square-foot home, which can be used as a potting shed, a pool house, a home office or a guest home. Eighty six square feet of the space are indoors, while the remaining square footage acts as an outdoor, covered patio for a kitchen set up or an area for al fresco dining.
If you’re looking to build this, though, you may want to grab a friend, as the description of the home estimates it will take eight hours of building for two adults.
A bathroom is not included in the space, but the Allwood Outlet writes that “adding one is not difficult,” as you can purchase indoor bathroom kits to DIY also.
Buy It! Allwood Solvolla 172-Square-Foot Studio Cabin Kit, Garden House, $7,250; amazon.com.
An illustration included in the listing shows that you’ll also need to create a foundation. But don’t go renting a digger just yet. A concrete slab or gravel-and-wood beam base are also options.
According to the listing on Amazon, all of the materials to build the home are included in the $7,250 price tag. However, if you want to add electricity or other utilities to the tiny home, that’s an added expense not included with the wooden structure’s building materials.
