12 Tiny House Plans You Can Easily Build By Yourself From a Tiny House Kit

Maybe you would like to build your own tiny house, but what if you don’t have the carpentry skills, or don’t have the time or space to gather “found” materials from scrap heaps and dumps? One solution is to purchase an affordable tiny house kit, and surprisingly, you can find tiny house kits on Amazon.

After researching the tiny house kits available on Amazon, the Allwood brand looks very attractive, versatile, and easy to put together. Below are 12 models that to me, look as if they could be put together by just one, or the bigger models, two people.

tiny house constructionThe key to the Allwood construction are the special, interlocking boards, made of very durable Nordic Spruce; these interlocking planks stack together, similar to the way an old fashioned log cabin was constructed. The wall thickness is generally 1-3/4″, and the dual tongue and groove creates a wind block pattern, so the home stays snug inside. The company says, no interior finish is needed over the beautiful Nordic Spruce. Extra planks are also available, in case you want to raise the roof level. The windows, doors and flooring are all included; the only things not included in the kits are the foundation materials, and the roofing shingles, as well as any plumbing or electrical work. Estimated cost for the foundation and roofing materials is $650 – $1,000, depending on the type of roof, and the type of site.

Foundation Options (not included)

In all cases and especially for large cabins, a concrete slab foundation is ideal. However, any solid foundation which spreads the construction load over a wide area will work.

An Allwood Tiny House Under Construction

According to the manufacturer: “For cabins up to 125 sqf, construction takes one day with two adults. The general rule is two days for cabins up to 200 sqf. with two adults. The type of building site and the foundation may save or add an extra day. Most of our sheds can be assembled by one person, but we recommend two people to assemble all cabin kits.”

So let’s get to the good part, the pics and specs of my 12 Allwood tiny house pics, in alphabetical order!

The Pioneer

Price: $7,495.00 & FREE Shipping

tiny houses for saleThe Allwood Pioneer is scaled to fit on a trailer (trailer base not included). It can also be built on the ground. It has 171 Sq Ft of room. Pioneer is a more traditional cabin style with a ridge roof. Each kit is pre-cut for the door and the small loft window, but there are no cut-outs for standard size windows on the walls. Those windows come with the kit and you can decide where to install them. The cutout for each window can be made while erecting the walls or later. Allwood Tiny Home Kits are intended for customers who want to set up the frame and the roof in a couple of days, and start furnishing the structure right away. This process greatly shortens the usual building time. In addition to the standard hardware (screws, nails, door lock, door/window hinges and handles), our Tiny Home models also come with aproximtely 120 long stainless steel screws. Those will secure each layer of wall planks to the previously added layer. For wall insulation we recommend adding studs and either wall siding or any other material of your choice. Fill the cavity with foam or rockwool. Electrical wiring and plumbing can also be concealed inside the insulation layer grid. The Pioneer Tiny Home features durable, dense grain and slow grown Nordic Spruce Floor, roof construction materials, included Pre-hung and glazed double door and windows, Pre-assembled gables. All nails, screws, fixings, handles and door lock. Special long screws to secure layers of wall planks. Easy to follow instructions.
