Amazon may have started as a bookstore, but the e-commerce giant is now all over our households and in the headlines. From smart home devices to the perennial favorite Instant Pot, Amazon sells almost everything—including houses.

Of course, we’re not talking about large houses. But an increasing number of tiny homes can be ordered on Amazon. They come in different shapes and sizes—think shipping containers, backyard sheds, and cabins—and each unit requires a unique amount of sweat equity.

We’ve rounded up five different options below.

Details: The 320-square-foot 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.
