“If you are searching for a cabin with a functional floor plan, take a look at Allwood Avalon,” the product description reads. “540-square-foot combined ground floor area with a 218-square-foot sleeping loft (whereof 53 SQF with min. 48″ headroom) allows many room allocation options,” the company writes. “This cabin can be a lake house, guest house, beach or garden cottage, or even a stand-alone retail building.” In addition to this, according to the company, all of the materials are made from high-quality Nordic spruce wood.

While you might imagine a truck towing a new house to your preferred area, the assembling of it is a bit IKEA-like. The tiny cabin comes in the form of a kit, which includes all the needed materials to build the structure. The seller estimates that with two adults working on the house, its assembling should take about one week.

The Allwood Avalon Cabin stands at $33,000 – which is a lot more compared to other company’s houses. However, the price is higher because of the bigger space that it offers. When constructing, you can choose from two possible floorplans for the cabin, with either five or three rooms. In addition to this, there’s also a 218-square-foot second story to use as an additional space.

“Avalon is very energy efficient and well suited even for colder climates,” the company writes. However… the keen eye of people on the internet proves otherwise. “Only access to the bathroom is from the patio. It’s a glorified outhouse. Definitely NOT suited for cold climates!” one person on Amazon writes. And there it is—when you look at the plan, you can clearly see that the door to the bathroom is outside.

Another tiny inconvenience is that while the company does write that only “minimal tools are needed”, they also recommend a forklift or a small crane to use for the installation of the tiny house. All in all, it seems like these are the only disadvantages to this cabin. What do you think? Would you buy such a house?
