You Can Now Buy a Shipping Container Home from Amazon

Tiny home lovers, rejoice! You can now buy an entire prefabricated tiny home off of Amazon. The online retail giant known for selling pretty much everything has officially outdone themselves by offering up this quaint $36,000 shipping container home. The 320 square-foot container is completely finished and ready to order.  

So why exactly are people resorting to prefab cabins, refurbished cargo containers, and shipping container houses? You can get a custom home on wheels for traveling, or place one in your backyard as a guest house or home office. Skip hiring a contractor with a complicated home design and order a mini getaway house from home with a ready made floor plan that has plenty of square feet. These are also perfect little homes if you're trying to live off grid.

It's worth noting that this storage container cabin is not Amazon Prime eligible, y'all. Shipping fees for the 40-foot container are in excess of $3,000, but it is a house, so that's to be expected. 

The home is built by MODS International, a modular construction company that creates homes and offices from shipping containers. MODS has been featured on HGTV, and from a look at their website, they're highly versatile.

The prefab home being offered has a combination dining and living room providing plenty of living space. There's also a kitchenette with a sink, microwave and fridge, a bathroom and a bedroom with four bunk beds. There is a ton of opportunity to create a cool modern design with some creative DIY projects.

Loaded with all kitchen appliance essentials and enough room for a tiny dining room, it also has other home necessities. The container home has electrical connections and air conditioning.

The home also features french double patio glass doors, but the entire container can be closed and locked for security purposes when you're away. One reviewer mentioned that the container could be a fantastic hunting cabin if placed in the mountains, where it's difficult to build.

You can also get tiny house kits on Amazon, but this ready-made home is already fully assembled. If this particular tiny home seems a little too tiny for you, MODS will build you one with any square footage you like.

You can find out more about this container home over at Amazon.
