MODs International sells these Pre-fabricated Tiny Homes on Amazon for $36,000, plus $754.49 shipping.

Amazon Selling $36,000 House

Friday, October 20, 2017

From Amazon’s potential new headquarters to its latest lineup of smart home devices, the roughly $430 billion company is in the headlines and in our households. The Seattle e-commerce company sells almost everything – including, it seems, a shipping container house.

In an effort to recycle the thousands of surplus containers that sit on docks around the world, shipping containers have been used in urban farms, off-the-grid getaways, and even as all-in-one pools. A fleet of new companies also use the 20- or 40-ft. containers to create prefab tiny homes, all available to order and delivered to your location.

Now, Wisconsin-based MODs International is selling their version on Amazon. The 320 sq. ft. house uses a new sea container as the structural shell – not a recycled one – and includes a rather plain bedroom, shower, toilet, sink, small kitchenette, appliances, and living area. Large double doors open to the outside, and extra windows were added to increase light.

The price for the home of your shipping container dreams on Amazon: $36,000. Of course, the unit isn’t sold from Amazon itself and is available from MODS as a third-party seller under the “See All Buying Options” tab. It also costs $4,500 to ship the 7,500 lb. structure to your location, so don’t expect your normal Prime discount.
