Looking to Downsize? You Can Buy a 5-Room DIY Cabin on Amazon for Less Than $33,000

Five rooms of one's own.
Five rooms of one's own.
Allwood/Amazon

If you’ve already mastered DIY houses for birds and dogs, maybe it’s time you built one for yourself.

As Simplemost reports, there are a number of house kits that you can order on Amazon, and the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit is one of the quaintest—and, at $32,990, most affordable—options. The 540-square-foot structure has enough space for a kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a sitting room—and there’s an additional 218-square-foot loft with the potential to be the coziest reading nook of all time.

You can opt for three larger rooms if you're willing to skip the kitchen and bathroom.Allwood/Amazon

The construction process might not be a great idea for someone who’s never picked up a hammer, but you don’t need an architectural degree to tackle it. Step-by-step instructions and all materials are included, so it’s a little like a high-level IKEA project. According to the Amazon listing, it takes two adults about a week to complete. Since the Nordic wood walls are reinforced with steel rods, the house can withstand winds up to 120 mph, and you can pay an extra $1000 to upgrade from double-glass windows and doors to triple-glass for added fortification.

Sadly, the cool ceiling lamp is not included.Allwood/Amazon

Though everything you need for the shell of the house comes in the kit, you will need to purchase whatever goes inside it: toilet, shower, sink, stove, insulation, and all other furnishings. You can also customize the blueprint to fit your own plans for the space; maybe, for example, you’re going to use the house as a small event venue, and you’d rather have two or three large, airy rooms and no kitchen or bedroom.

Turn Your Laptop Into a Multi-Monitor Hub With This Lightweight Accessory

Mobile Pixels
Mobile Pixels

If your dining room table has been doubling as your work-from-home station over the past few months, you’re probably missing the extra space, supportive chair, and the dual-monitor setup at your old office. The Mobile Pixels Trio, a portable triple-screen laptop monitor accessory, is designed to give you the space that multiple monitors provide without needing to be hardwired in a cubicle.

The Mobile Pixels brand offers an innovative multi-screen laptop accessory that's easy to use. Once you fit the magnetized accessory to the back of your laptop and plug it in, you simply slide the extra screens out and start working. The product began on Indiegogo with a single monitor attachment, but the new Trio model comes with an additional monitor, bringing the total number of screens at your disposal to three.

The lightweight tool comes in two sizes, Trio (12.6 inches across) and Trio Max (14 inches), and is compatible with any Mac, Linux, Chrome, or Android device with a USB connection. The Mobile Pixels Trio and Trio Max can be configured however you want, so if you need one monitor to be in portrait mode for design and coding work, you just need to turn the screen and you're good to go.

Right now, both sizes are discounted, with the smaller screen going for $214.99 and the larger one for $269.99.

Price subject to change.
