Etsy is a fantastic resource for unique artwork, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, and cross-stitch patterns. And tiny homes. You may be surprised, but the website for makers also hosts a small cottage industry of teeny micro homes and structures eager to support your next adventure.

As with all tiny homes, know what you're getting (and not getting) before you buy. Some of these are kits, which require assembly, and the purchase of additional finishes, to be livable. Many require electrical and plumbing hookups of some kind, so do your research! Also keep in mind that local permitting laws may limit where you can place your tiny house.

1. Off-Grid Luxury

Get away from the hubbub of city life in this luxurious little space, which costs $44,000. At 16-feet long, this updated trailer is definitely tiny, but the interiors feel expansive. Wake up to chirping birds and sun shining through trees, thanks to the wide windows surrounding the wall-to-wall queen-sized memory foam bed. The itsy-bitsy kitchen features blonde wood and modern brass fittings, and even a wee stove for warming up tea.

This tiny home operates entirely independently and off-grid. Five hundred watts of solar are installed on the roof, and battery backup keeps you warm on cloudy days (the excess of insulation and propane heater help, too). Even the toilet plays its part; the composting model is convenient for small spaces.

2. Rustic Glamour

Step into this beautiful, $22,000 tiny home and breathe easy: You don't need to do a lick of work to get this place in order. White walls and wooden beams don't just feel contemporary—they help the small, 124-square-foot space feel oversized.

The home is packed with tiny luxuries, like cozy heated floors; a full-size kitchen sink; and charred, glossed, and oiled cedar planks. You won't even feel squished in the sizable bathroom. New tires and professional plumbing and electric means this baby is ready to support you for years to come, no work needed.

3. Flat-Pack Finery

Order this $8,000 112-square-foot tiny home and you'll receive a flat-packed truckload of modern homey goodness. To construct the home, you'll need two people, four hours, and an 11mm wrench. But to get electricity and other amenities, you'll need at least another couple thousand dollars.

Despite the teeny tiny footprint, the interiors still feel roomy. A loft upstairs is spacious enough for a queen-sized mattress, with enormous windows to let in light. And the shower-slash-bathroom nook has removable walls, so if you just want to set the home up as extra sleeping space in your backyard, that's okay.

4. Tiny, Bespoke Joy

These wheeled creations start at $6,000 for a 4' by 8' space and run up to $15,000 for an almost-too-big-to-be-tiny 12' by 12' home. The listing states, "When you buy this item, your initial payment acts as a non-refundable deposit to ensure your commission, which covers the cost of basic materials and labor for your tiny home."

Fully outfitted, these homes will go with you wherever you want. Kolobrik can help you set up solar, accessories, water, and power—as well as built-in microphone stands and guitar hooks, in case you want to jam on the road.

5. Geometric Garden

Set up this funky geometric-inspired "Tripod Garden Room" in your backyard to create a unique retreat, or drag it to the middle of the woods for some seriously stylish glamping. This blonde wood escape costs just a hair under $34,000, and you'll have to wait for shipping from Canterbury, United Kingdom.

Six triangular pieces bolt together to create this dome-like tiny home. The interior features an amazingly open floor plan, with high ceilings, plenty of storage and plywood accents that extend the home's playful wooden color scheme. There's even enough room for a table for four, perfect for hosting friends.

6. Shoot'n Shack

If you're looking for a tiny home with seriously rustic appeal, this quirky, $10,000 Shoot'n Shack would look equally at home in the Wild West or deep in the woods. Outfit the 8' by 12' interior with your favorite woodsy accents.

Want to build a tiny Western-style town in your backyard? The home designers, Tiny Town Studios, have you covered: grab a rustic treehouse or a two-story cedar palace to complete the country look.
