In the age of prefab houses sold online, there’s a style for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a truly tiny cabin, a luxury mini retreat, or basically a stylish hut, your pre-made modular home dreams can be realized for a price. For those who like the utilitarian look of a shipping container, Amazon is selling a portable, prefab container house for $14,999, plus $3,000 shipping.

The house, offered by Amazon seller XIANGXING, measures 5900 x 4880 x 5580mm, which comes out to 19.36 x 16.01 x 18.31 feet. Downstairs, it has two bedrooms, each of which appears to be large enough for a full-size bed, as well as a bathroom and kitchen.

Upstairs, there’s another room shown in the sketches as a dining area, and a roof deck, with stairs that lead down to your yard, wherever you may choose it to be.

The container house is made of steel, with anti-rust paint. Floors are made of plywood and PVC, and the windows have aluminum siding. It is wired for electricity and set up for plumbing as well, and the seller mentions in the Q&A section of the listing that placement of everything is customizable.

So far, both of the house’s reviews are just from prospective buyers, not from verified buyers, so if you choose to buy one, you may be the first guinea pig to leave an informative review.
