In-laws in Town? Amazon Is Selling a DIY Guest House You Can Build in Your Backyard (We’re Serious)
Amazon

Whenever you need to order something in a hurry, where’s the first place you look? If you’re anything like us, Amazon is probably one of your go-tos. But when we heard that Amazon sells a DIY backyard guest house, we had to check it out for ourselves. 

It’s pretty genius. Family visiting? Now they have a place to stay. Need some time away from the kids? Here’s your new wo(man) cave. You can convert it into a pool shed, garden house, outside office or pretty much anything you can think of. 

According to Amazon, the structure ($7,250) is a total of 172 square feet and can actually be assembled in approximately eight hours (!). It's an ideal size compact enough to actually fit in your backyard, but with enough space to be useful and occupy-able.

OK OK, so it’s a little intimidating to look at. How the heck can an average human assemble a mini-house by themselves? Luckily, your purchase comes with in-depth instructions.

One important thing to note is that this guy doesn’t include any inside amenities. So if you’re looking to have electricity or air conditioning, you’re on your own for that one. But if you’re not loving the way it looks in photos, it’s totally customizable—so you can paint or decorate the structure (which is made entirely out of wood) however your DIY heart desires. 

Unfortunately, the popular item is currently sold out on Amazon (we’re not surprised), but keep checking back for when it’s in stock again. Don't wanna wait? Try this even less expensive (albeit smaller) alternative.

We think it’ll look perfect next to your pop-up greenhouse
