A tiny house or shed in the backyard can easily be used as a guest house, a fitness studio, a work-from-home space (after all, small home offices are all the rage right now), and so much more. There seems to be an infinite number of ways to design them. And getting started on yours has never been simpler. A few clicks are all it takes to order one. However, keep in mind that each manufacturer's offerings will vary. For example, some house kits come with all of the necessary materials (windows, doors, etc.), while others only include the main frame components, allowing you to customize your home to your specific tastes. We've selected a few of our favorite prefab tiny homes that can be used for a wide range of functions.
