These days it seems like you can buy anything online. Groceries, clothes, you name it you can buy it. But did you know you can purchase small homes, aka a tiny house. Blame it on the American TV show Tiny House Nation, or millennials looking to downsizing their digs to join a tiny house community. Ready and waiting for your order, with the simple click of a button you can be the proud new homeowner of a tiny home.
Now when I say the click of a button, I really do mean the click of a button. This isn't like scrolling through a tiny company website like the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company or New Frontier, where you'll find a small space home you like and contact the dealer. I mean you can add these tiny houses to your online shopping cart and proceed directly to checkout. Sounds crazy I know, but these houses exist and we've got the top six to prove it. Be forewarned, you may be tempted to go off-grid and become a complete minimalist of the tiny house living.

Like a tiny house hotel on wheels, this beautiful handmade home in the USA constructed out of charred red cedar comes fully stocked and ready for you to hit the road. The tiny home builders really had the traveler type in mind. Some amenities you will enjoy are a full-size deep kitchen sink, a rain barrel shower, RV hookups for RV parks, and a built in sleeping loft to maximize space. As a bonus, the interior features shou sugi ban siding which is a Japanese wood charring technique that not only looks stunning but makes the wood more fire and rot resistant.

3. Colonial Pinehurst
Size: Up to 288 square feet
You can have your own cottage style tiny home with this DIY shed kit. It comes with everything you need to have a fancy Colonial-themed house minus the enormous real estate cost. While it does come in several sizes, I recommend maxing out making it a 288 square foot home. You could even go smaller and use it as a quaint guest house.

Missing that weekend cabin getaway? Make it a permanent vacation with the Allwood Cabin kit. The lofted interior floor plan maximizes sleeping space while the downstairs has a living room and two separate rooms you can make to your liking. I have a feeling the kids are going to love living the tiny life in this one.
5. Garden House

Cozy contemporary sums up this small slice of tiny living heaven. The large windows allow natural light to shine in, creating a more roomy feel. Imagine plopping this down on a piece of property with a nice oceanic or breathtaking forested panoramic view.

If you spend most your time outdoors and interior square footage is not a matter, then take a look at this.

Set up a grill on the deck, make a cozy patio seating, or turn it into an outdoor movie theater. Any way you do it up, this will be a fun place to entertain friends in a beautiful outdoor setting.
Tiny life calling your name? Take a look at the Parkitecture. The inside comes fully finished so if you're not particularly handy you won't have to worry about things like insulation or building loft stairs that double as your storage.

So if you're chomping at the bit to move into a pre-fab ready tiny home, pack up your stuff and get cozy inside this.
