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.

If you're looking to start a career as a financial analyst and need to prep for the CFA Level 1 exam, you can take advantage of this nine-course bundle that will teach you what you need to know about the major topics on the test, including portfolio management and ethical standards. And right now, the whole bundle is available for just $39.99.

Your first step in the All-In-One CFA Level 1 Exam Certification Prep Bundle is a course on ethics, where you’ll learn the structure of the CFA Institute Professional Conduct Program and GIPS standards that regulate the investment industry. You’ll even get 144 practice questions to ensure you master these important standards before you move on to the next course.

Once you’ve got ethics down, you’ll get a crash course in Quantitative Methods, with topics covering important formulations and calculations, like probability theory and the time value of money. This section makes up 10 percent of the overall exam, and you'll get a bonus 95-question practice test to get you ready for it.

The next courses in Economics, Financial Reporting and Analysis, Corporate Finance, and Equity Investments include 12 hours of lessons for the exam. Then, you’ll round out your prep with an additional three courses in portfolio investments. Learn everything about alternative assets in a well-diversified institutional portfolio, investment goals through portfolio management, and fixed income strategies.

Right now, the entire bundle is discounted by 97 percent, totaling just $39.99.

Price subject to change.
