– Today we’re gonna be looking at five tiny manufactured homes on Amazon.
And as a bonus we’regonna be taking a look at this one right here.
So get your Internet ready ’cause it’s time to doa little Prime shopping.
Let’s get started.
(soft electronic music) Before we jump online, did you know that tiny housesstarted in the mid ’80s, but they really didn’t grow in popularity until the millennium, and of course, then itbecame quite a craze.
But most of the reasonthat most people like tiny homes is because of the price.
Just like this one on Amazon.
Okay, so this is goingto be one of our tiniest tiny homes that we look at.
It’s called the Allwood Escape Cabin and it’s $5, 350 of coursewith the free shipping.
And it’s only 113 square feet.
Remember, these do not have installation.
And the weight of thiscabin is 2, 300 pounds.
Let’s take a look on the inside which is adorable ’cause I love this natural wood look.
They have some really nicepictures of the inside that are provided by other people that have gotten them off of Airbnb.
But it is a very, very tiny cabin.
I can’t imagine spendinga long period of time living in one of these.
I know lots of people do it, but not as many as peopleprobably really think.
Here’s a full floorplan that they give you of this particular tiny home.
So, the next tiny home we’re looking at is probably the most modernlooking of all of them that we’re gonna be looking at today.
This one they’re callinga Studio Garden House.
So let’s take a look at it.
It’s $9, 990 and of courseit has the free shipping.
The description of thisparticular home says, it’s an ideal home office, it’s a contemporary urban styling.
Large windows allowabundance of natural light, suitable for environments where the classic cabinstyle does not fit.
It has two ratings, so let’s go ahead and click on those.
It said it was a great value.
“I would definitely changethings up a bit for bath and “small kitchen for guestsand possibly stretch ceiling “to eight feet.
” Oops, this one’s a bad review.
“I sold my 300K house justto try out something new “and this wasn’t worth it.
“Now I need to buy my own house.
” Why would you sell a $300, 000house to live in a tiny house that doesn’t have installation? That wasn’t proper prior planning.
And it’s literally 200 square feet.
Who helped them to make the decision? Okay, anyways, let’s move one.
(laughs) Alright, here’s an interesting question that somebody asked, “Are they hurricane proof?” Meaning, are the kits hurricane proof.
I don’t even know of a housethat is hurricane proof, but here’s how they answered it.
“While these structures areresistant to wind speeds, “technically they do not meetthe latest coastal Florida “wind and hurricane codes.
” So, that’s something to know if you live on the Florida coastline, that it does not meet the hurricane codes.
The roof pitch is two degrees and it supposedly is easy to assemble.
And if you’re anything like me and if you’ve ever been in IKEA, nothing is easy to assemble.
(laughs) Another main reason whypeople decide on tiny homes is they want to downsize their stuff.
– That’s all your house is, your house is just a place for your stuff.
If you didn’t have so much goddamn stuff, you wouldn’t need a house.
(audience laughing) you could just walk around all the time.
That’s all your house is is a pile of stuff with a cover on it.
It seems that we all have aa little bit too much stuff.
So maybe this tiny home onAmazon might work for you and less stuff.
Okay, the next one we’regonna be looking at is one that is under40, 000 but it doesn’t have the free shipping.
But it’s still on Amazon.
It’s called the Jackson Tiny Home.
This house is a four bedroom tiny home.
So it’s 275 square feetwith a 119 square feet for the front porch.
The weight of it is 6, 693 pounds, and that makes the shippingcost for this $3, 350 which is pretty high.
But of course that keepsit under the $40, 000, but if you’re expecting a free shipping, not on this one.
But I wanted to show it, because it was super cute.
Let me show you thefloor plan really quick.
But it does have four full rooms and I did like the factthat it had a little porch.
That would be really cute for someone that’s looking for thattiny home life style.
This is the loft, this is where people sleep.
Did you know that there’sestimated 10, 000 tiny homes throughout the United States.
I thought that the numberwas going to be higher.
But year after year there’sabout 700 tiny homes that are built by commercial builders.
And there’s another 700 thatare built by private residents that are trying to build them themselves.
I thought it was an interesting fact.
If you’re thinking aboutbuilding one yourself you might be interestedin this one on Amazon.
This is how much room it gives me.
Next tiny manufactured homewe’re gonna be looking at on Amazon is a a little bitpricier than the couple of the other ones that we’ve looked at.
It’s called the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit and it’s 540 square feet.
It does have four ratings, which gives it a four and a half stars.
It doesn’t have a floor plan here, it does seems that youcould live in this space a lot easier than you canin some of these smaller tiny homes that we looked at.
Here’s a full blueprint of the house, it does look really nice and big.
Each of the bedrooms looks like it has about 120 square feet.
The living square footagein the living room area is about 215 square feet.
The kitchen is about 45 square feet.
The bathroom’s 40 square feet.
And then the front porchthey’re giving you about 176 square feet.
This home does have a loft to it.
They say you can put two beds in there, but I don’t know about you, I hope you don’t wanna bearound people that snore.
‘Cause I certainly don’t and I can’t imagine sharing a room, a tiny room with another two people.
Unless it’s my kids, I can handle that.
When they snore, they’re cute.
It’s nice that theyprovide some extra pictures that are not just cartoon pictures, drawing pictures.
And it is adorable.
I love the high ceilings on this.
This is something I could live in for a long period of time.
I don’t know if I couldlive my whole entire life in one of those things, but definitely this feelsmuch more like a home than a cramped space that you can only spend a few hours in.
I think I’m just too claustrophobic.
But that bathroom’s adorable.
Please note, ’cause I’veread some of these questions, the shower and the plumbing, and the electrical doesn’tcome with this house.
But it does come with free shipping.
Still all these housescome with the free shipping except for a couple.
So, that the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit, 540 square feet.
You know, I’m thinkingthis particular tiny home would make a perfectYouTube studio for myself.
I bet you’re wondering howmuch this particular one is.
We’re gonna find out in just a little bit, ’cause we have two more tinyhomes from Amazon to look at.
Like this one.
Alright, the next onewe’re gonna be looking at is the Allwood Timberline.
This house is 483 square feet and it’s considered a cabin kit.
It’s $34, 900 but it doesinclude the free shipping.
I know I keep telling you that, but it is something to know.
The inside floor area is 354 square feet, a loft is 129 square feet.
It does have a snow load capacity which is something wedon’t have to worry about here in Louisiana, but if you are worried about it, it says 40 pounds.
The wind load capacity isup to 120 miles per hour, and you can add factoryprotection against termites, which is something thatwe have a major problem here in Louisiana.
They say there’re two typesof homes in Louisiana, ones that have termites and ones that are gonna get them.
That’s what downstairs would look like and this is what theupstairs with a loft in it looks like you can fittwo regular twin beds.
Here’s a full blueprint.
This is the part I foundreally interesting.
“This model comes withsteel storm rods for “all four corners.
“The rods hold planks ofeach wall tightly together.
“This can also be anchored to the ground.
” So, that’s really good forpeople that are thinking about definitely keeping these intact.
All of these tiny homesthat we’re looking at today are not ones that canbe rolled down the road.
They are ones thatintended to stay in place.
Ooh, one of the othermain reasons why people decide to live in a tiny home is because they’re wanting to leave a smaller carbon footprint.
And they’re wanting to live off the grid.
So let’s go take a lookat this particular house on Amazon and see if we can put some solar panels on the roof.
So I think this particulartiny home will be perfect because of the slope of the roof and it’ll be perfect for solar panels.
This house is listed, not even listed.
See, I’m talking like a real estate agent.
This house is for sale, not even for sale.
This is how much it costs, $19, 990 and it’s 259 square feet.
It’s called the Allwood Ranger Cabin Kit.
And the main area is 259 square feet.
It’s milled from slow grown Nordic spruce.
The roof area is 451square feet and it says, oh look, it even says, ideal for solar panels.
Just like I thought.
And it says that they’regonna need about 45 days.
So I want you to lookat the amount of time that it takes them to ship it.
So if we were to order this today, according to Amazon it would come in on January 13the through the 29th.
So, you probably have like two months so if you decided to do this now it’s gonna be a project for the future, don’t expect it to showup at your door next day, like most Amazon orders do.
This one takes a little extra time.
This part cracks me up.
They have this little rendering here, and I wanna know where they found this weird looking family.
Like the woman looks likeshe’s wearing a slip, the woman they drew on there.
This is the weirdestrendering I’ve ever seen.
So this is inside floorplan of the Allwood Ranger, it’s 259 square feet on one side, the loft is 168 square feet.
So that gives enough space to put in a, maybe even, a double bed, if it’s pretty tight.
This model does havethat tongue and groove with the steel rods thatgives it that extra security to hold into the ground.
These are all the things thatit comes with in assembly, I hope it comes with reallyawesome instructions.
And again it has thesepictures that show you how you can go ahead andhave the hose plumbed.
Okay, so that’s the Allwood Ranger Cabin that’s 255 square feet on Amazon.
It’s also perfect for solar panels and you can have itdelivered to your house in about a couple of months for you to put together by yourself.
Remember, it doesn’t come assembled.
Okay, so that’s all fivetiny manufactured homes that you can get from Amazonfor less than $50, 000.
But now that you’ve waited all this time you’re probably wonderinghow much this one is.
If you remember a while back I did a video about the five mythsabout manufactured homes and we met with Gary Millet.
Well, he went ahead and let me show you this particular tiny home and it is $39, 900, that’s with setup and air conditioning.
So sometimes Amazon doesn’thave the best deals.
