For people who have been priced out of the traditional housing market, don’t need a ton of space or prefer creating a smaller carbon footprint, some have found tiny homes a suitable alternative to larger, pricier houses.

A tiny house isn’t just a home that’s smaller than usual. While definitions vary by state, county, city or other jurisdiction, the International Residential Code — which many communities base their building codes upon — classifies a tiny home as “a dwelling that is 400 square feet or less in floor area, excluding lofts.” 

It’s not uncommon for people to have tiny homes custom-built on the site of their choice, but that’s not the only option. There are tiny homes for sale online that can be delivered to their new owners. Most often, these tiny homes arrive as kits that have to be built, and many don’t include everything required to move in, such as plumbing or electrical components. Others are not sold as tiny homes but instead as cabins or sheds that could become unique living quarters with some elbow grease and creativity.

From cabins to shipping containers, there are a range of options (and price variations) out there. These tiny houses can be a big step toward homeownership for someone handy (or with skillful friends) who can invest a little time and cash. 

Allwood Summerlight Cabin Kit

This little cabin could be transformed into a distinctive tiny house. Two adults can assemble it in about three days with only minimal tools. The kit includes all construction materials for walls, floor and roof, and pre-hung and glazed double doors and windows. Although the plexiglass on the roof has moderate load-bearing strength, it does not have a snow load rating. The Summerlight is available through Amazon from the Allwood Outlet.
