Not only are tiny homes trending because of the design and organizational inspo they provide, but also the mobility and freedom that nomad wannabes have only dreamed of. And now, with large companies like Amazon selling tiny home kits that allow tiny home lovers to build one themselves, it seems to be easier than ever to jump on the craze.
Over the past year, Amazon has changed the real estate game by making tiny house kits available for online purchase. A deconstructed house gets delivered straight to your door, containing all the essential items necessary for building your dream micro home.
Now you might be asking, why would someone buy the tools to build a tiny house when they can just buy one already made? For one, it costs a lot less to build your own rather than paying a company to construct one for you, according to Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. Secondly, it's a great learning experience that many aspiring tiny home owners want to take part in. Tiny house kits provide the freedom to build it the precise way the owner prefers, so it's truly a way to finally build that dream tiny home you've always desired.
And it's not just a one-size-fits-all deal. With Amazon's multiple tiny house kits options to choose from, future home owners have the flexibility to select the one that's right for them.
