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.

Real estate has always been a solid investment strategy, but it can be a little daunting to get started. The five-course Fundamentals of Real Estate Investment Bundle is built to guide you through the process, from classes in pre-investment to ones that help you identify the right partners. And you can get the whole bundle at a 97 percent discount today.

Before you spend a penny, you’re going to want to fully understand the key concepts of real estate investing. The Pre-Investing course will walk you through the evaluation of residential and commercial opportunities for investment, teach you how to mitigate risks, and explain other essential skills over a five-hour series of lectures. Once you’re feeling secure in your skills, you’ll be ready for the Fundamentals of Real Estate Investment Analysis series, where six hours of professional investment analysis techniques will provide a practical approach to attaining rental income properties and other investment opportunities.

You may be more familiar with residential real estate, but it's also important to learn about the commercial side of things. In the Introduction to Commercial Real Estate Analysis class, you'll be guided through case studies of real-world commercial deals for a hands-on approach to learning how professionals evaluate commercial opportunities.

Real estate is a massive investment that requires some big starting capital, and bringing in partners can be a great strategy to mitigate some of that risk. This bundle’s How To Invest with Partners class will help you learn to identify the right partners for your venture by using the Waterfall Distribution Framework. Learn what that is and how to apply it over the quick hour-long course.

The course bundle wraps up with a final hour-long class that covers techniques professionals use to evaluate wholesale deals and features a custom-built calculator to help you speed up the process.

Start your real estate portfolio on the right foot with a strong foundation of education with The Fundamentals of Real Estate Investment Bundle. Right now, you can get it at a 97 percent discount, totaling just $25.

Price subject to change.
