The emergence of e-commerce platforms has truly revolutionized the way we shop. From food and groceries to novelty items and even home decors, you can order pretty much anything online these days. So, it’s not entirely surprising that you can now get a DIY house kit with just a click of a button. Yes, you’ve read that right, Amazon is selling a cabin kit that you can assemble yourself!
The Allwood Avalon cabin kit offers a whopping 540-square-foot ground floor area with a 218-square-foot sleeping loft. You may choose to maximize the ground floor area and construct it with five rooms.

It’s surprisingly spacious enough to accommodate a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a reading nook and a bedroom. On top of that, you can also set up an extra bedroom in the loft. Aside from the spacious interior, you’d also get a porch area that’s perfect for al fresco dining.
As such, this DIY tiny house kit certainly makes an excellent option if you’re looking to downsize your home. Likewise, it’s a more convenient choice than building your guest house, garden cottage or even granny flat from scratch.
As per the product description, this build-it-yourself home may also qualify as an accessory dwelling unit (ADU). However, keep in mind to comply with the regulations applicable to your area to avoid incurring fines or penalties.
Basically, the kit includes everything you’ll need to build your tiny house, except the roof shingles and foundation materials. The kit also comes with an instruction manual to guide you along the way. According to the company’s website, it takes about a week for two adults to finish assembling the house. So, while you have the option to build it all by yourself, we’d suggest asking for help to make the process faster and more efficient.
All wood parts are milled from dense and durable solid Nordic spruce wood, guaranteeing optimal wind and snow load capacities. The kit is also perfectly customizable with optional add-ons and upgrade options for the windows, wall insulation and wall planks. Do note that every kit is made to order, so allow a lead time of 60 to 75 days from the order date to delivery.
