Amazon’s Selling A Guesthouse ‘Kit’ That You Can Build In Your Backyard In 8 Hours


Do It Yourself projects are very popular lately, especially now since people are stuck indoors due to the quarantine. These projects can vary from beneficial things such as weed killers and disinfecting wipes or decorations. Since Spring is usually the time people renovate their houses and gardens, some of these DIY projects might be useful if you don’t want workers coming into your house or backyard to work. Whether it’s decorating your backyard with glass garden mushrooms or adding a new pergola with swings and fire pit, you can find fascinating DIY projects online. The only thing that you will need is the materials and the time to build these things.

Every household should have a guestroom that can be used either for a friend that comes to visit or for you to read, relax, or work in. If you do not have space in your house to spare a room for such occasions, then you’re in luck. Like most things that you can think of, you can find a DIY kit for a ‘guest house or home office’ on Amazon. If you are unable to find it on Amazon or they’re sold out, make sure you check Allwood since they are the original creators of this garden house kit.

Organizing Garden House

Amazon’s perfect DIY guest house or home office is the ideal addition for your backyard. If you don’t want to use it as either an office or a guest house, you can effortlessly transform it into a studio, pool house, gaming room, or any other idea that comes to mind. If you don’t want to set it up in your garden, you can have the option to place it on your rooftop. This way, even people that live in multi-story buildings can benefit from a garden house.

This Solvalla garden house is made from high quality solid Nordic wood which gives it a feeling as if you’re making a classic log cabin. Additionally, it has an outdoor deck that can serve as a place to sit and read or even grilling some food.

You can make whatever modification you want to this garden house whether it’s painting it or styling any kind of furniture. The only limitation that you can get with this garden house is your imagination.

The Solvalla garden house weighs about 2500 lbs. (or 1125 kg.) and stretches up to 172 ft2 (or 16 m2).

The kit consists of building materials for the entire garden house except for its foundation or rooftop shingles. Additionally, with the kit, you will receive step-by-step instructions for assembling the garden house. You won’t be needing lots of tools to finish the house, however, make sure that you call a friend to help you out. With two adults, this garden house will be finished in about 8 hours.

Before purchasing this addition to your house, make sure that it does not include electricity, HVAC, or plumbing. However, you can purchase any DIY add-on kits such as bathrooms from Allwood. If you want to add HVAC or electricity, it’s up to you to connect them.
