Amazon Is Selling a DIY Backyard Bar and Hello, Summer

First, it was tiny homes. Then came she sheds followed by the ultra-luxe escape pods. And now, there's a new way to indulge your biggest smallest backyard dreams—a DIY bar that would look perfectly at home in your garden.

Originally billed as a Scandi-style food kiosk, this easy-to-assemble (judging by the instructions and minimal equipment required) miniature house could also function as an outdoor bar. (Three cheers for an outdoor bar that isn't packed with crowds, serves affordable drinks and lets you soak up the sun.)

The inside floor space comes in around 94 square feet and there are plenty of shelves inside for you to rest your beverage on. Dubbed the Amanda, the kiosk is made out of Nordic spruce wood and being sold on Amazon for $3,990.

According to the manufacturer, the assembly should take "mere hours." (Clearly, they've never seen us try to put together an IKEA wardrobe.)

But how big does your backyard space need to be in order to accommodate the Amanda? The miniature shed measures approximately 12 feet by 8 feet, although you definitely want to make sure that you have enough space to open up the windows.

No need for an outdoor bar? For those who have always wanted to have their own food business, this could be a great way to start. Or hey, you could seriously upgrade your kids' lemonade stand. It can even work as a chicken coop, according to the seller.

Whatever your needs, we're sure you could think of some fun way to use this wooden house. (But come on, how cool would a bar be?)
