The next time you’re filling up your Amazon shopping cart with a smart watch, cookware, or an iRobot vacuum, just add a DIY tiny wood cottage.
The 16’x20’ Timber Frame Post and Beam Vermont Cottage with Loft Pre-Cut Kit is equipped with every piece you need to assemble your very own wood cabin, ready to ship to your front door.
The kit is stocked with pre-cut lumber, corrugated metal roofing, barn sash windows with screens and a pine door with window. The cabin design itself is simple but timeless, featuring a front porch, loft and loft ladder.
To ease you into your new life as a builder extraordinaire the wood is organized with color coded stickers that correspond to step-by-step assembly directions that streamline the building process as much as possible.
Manufacturer Jamaica Cottage Shop, Inc. estimates that it should take two people roughly 40 hours to complete the project, but there’s also a toll-free tech support line you can call if you’re stumped at any point along the way (not that you’d need it you architect-in-training).
Building a cabin with your own two hands might have seemed like an impossible fantasy but now that rustic tiny house, artist’s retreat, hunting cabin or flat-out backyard man cave is firmly within reach.
And if even the DIY kit feels a little daunting in satisfying your mountain cabin dreams (hey, no judgment here) you know Amazon’s still got you covered. Just check out one of their already-assembled tiny homes.
