Amazon seems to have an endless amount of DIY projects to choose from, but whether you consider yourself an expert carpenter like Ron Swanson or a world-class IKEA furniture master, this build-your-own cabin kit will put your skills to the test.

The Allwood Claudia Cabin Kit measures in at 209 square feet and is estimated to take about three to five days for two adults to assemble. In terms of materials, the $10,990 cabin (or shed, if you prefer) is made of Nordic spruce wood planks and comes with wind braces and rubber silicone seals around the door and windows for added protection.

In every kit, you'll get a book of numbered photo directions, so you (hopefully) won't get too lost along the way. It also includes all the nails, screws, steel rods, handles, and double-glazed doors and windows you'll need. Floor and roof insulation is standard in each shipment, though you might need to add more for colder climates. Fortunately, the 2020 model has a sturdy roof that can hold 90 pounds per square foot of snow. As this cabin kit is just to build the structure, you'll get to personalize the inside with paint, wallpaper, decor, and appliances once you're finished.
