Amazon is selling a tiny-home kit that can be assembled in just eight hours. The vendor, Allwood, said the structure isn’t supposed to serve as a permanent residence, since there’s no bathroom or kitchen. Instead, the property could function as a yoga studio, pool house, or outdoor grilling area.
The product is part of a growing trend of making tiny homes cheaper and easier to assemble, but it’s geared toward a wealthier clientele.
Tiny homes have emerged as a solution to skyrocketing rents in major cities, but lately they’ve also become a way for wealthy buyers to customize their properties.
Amazon is selling a $7,250 kit for a tiny studio that can be assembled in just eight hours, provided there are two people on hand to put it together.
The studio’s vendor, Allwood, said the structure is intended for backyard use as an extension of a main kitchen, not a permanent residence. It could also function as a yoga studio or pool house. Amazon lists the model as an “ideal home office or guest house.”
The space is divided between a fully enclosed indoor area and an outdoor deck that’s suited for grilling. At 172 square feet, there’s not enough room for a restroom or kitchen, though Allwood makes other models that include these amenities.
