The housing market is rough for a lot of buyers, and tiny homes have become increasingly popular. They’re often seen as an option for Americans looking for a more affordable home or trying to downsize.

You can build a custom house the way you would any other home — or you can just order one.

That’s what these retailers offer. There are hundreds of options to choose from, and they’ll ship them right to you.

Do a search on Amazon, and you’ll find more than 600 tiny home listings. They aren’t just some tiny sheds, either. One option is 19 feet by 20 feet, foldable, with two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and a small living space.

While that home stays flat on the ground, this A-style home is on wheels and completely portable. It’s 190 square feet with a kitchen and bathroom. Instead of a full bedroom, though, it has a loft.

Home Depot’s collection takes the cake thanks to its variety. Shoppers can search by number of bedrooms, price and space. Some of their options contain three bedrooms and more than 1,000 square feet. You can even get a yurt cabin.

Definitely don’t think of the tiny homes at Home Depot as just some basic backyard sheds (although they can be, if you want). One of their studio structures even features a balcony and steel spiral staircase.

Be aware that most Home Depot products are kits. That means you’ll get the materials but have to assemble the home yourself, or hire someone to do it for you. Be sure to read what’s included in each kit as well. Many are only for the frame, and you’ll have to purchase finish materials separately.

Etsy probably wouldn’t be your first go-to for tiny home shopping, but it’s surprisingly an option. A number of their listings are PDF plans for homes and extravagant fairy tale treehouses — but listings go far beyond that.

One particular home is on wheels and ready to roll. It comes with a finished kitchen, water and electrical connections, a living room and two bedrooms. There’s a more stationary home with similar features as well. And there are also plenty of other options to check out.

Retailers that sell small structures

The following retailers don’t sell tiny homes in the traditional sense. Instead, they sell freestanding studios and small structures that can become tiny houses if you decide to add a kitchen, bathroom, insulation and other home essentials.

Costco’s primary site offers a DIY studio from Studio Shed, but you’ll find more options by shopping through Costco Next. This program provides Costco members with discounts from partnering brands. For sheds with tiny-home potential, check out the other offerings through Studio Shed.

Their smallest models come from the Signature Series and the Portland Series, and each is a one-room studio. Options in the Signature Series are 10 feet by 12 feet. The options in the Portland Series are 12 feet by 16 feet and 16 feet by 16 feet.

There are also more traditional tiny homes available though Studio Shed. The Aspect Series model can be either one bed, one bath or two beds, two baths.

The Summit Series model has several different configurations to choose from. These include a traditional single-room studio, a studio with a bathroom and a home with two full bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchen with up to 1,000 square feet of space.

Home Depot has Lowe’s beat, as do the other retailers who offer built-in kitchens and bathrooms, but Lowe’s still has a generous variety of small structures to choose from. They have a few one-room, 12-by-10-foot options from Studio Shed. Those looking for something larger should look at their collection from Best Barns.

These are cheaper than many of the options we’ve previously listed and similarly sized if not larger. But they’re more bare-bones. They’re large enough to function as tiny homes, though, and can be insulated and interior-finished.

Some are as big as 16 feet by 32 feet. They often include windows as well, and some have garage doors and second-floor spaces. The window and stair placements are even customizable on some models.
