    Is it true? Can you really order a house from Amazon.com and have it delivered?

    It is true. Here's the link from Amazon.com. You're actually buying it from one of Amazon's third-party sellers, but you can make the purchase from Amazon.com.

    I have a copy of a 1908 Sears Catalog. They sold several different styles of houses.

    It might work as a camping home or such but I don't think I could live in anything that small.

    That's amazing! I watch Tiny Home builders on TV and really enjoy watching some of the innovative solutions the come up with. I'm not interested in buying one since I'm perfectly happy with the home I have but it's certainly an attractive option for others.

    I remember reading somewhere, that old timey Sears sold some really nice sized Victorian style home kits for people that could afford to have them shipped by railroad, and then erected on their land. Many times the cost of shipping was more than the cost of the house.

    I’m also a Tiny House viewer. I became fascinated by very compact multifunction spaces when I was a child visiting my uncle’s shrimping vessel. I felt like I was a little girl in a tiny home. :)
