Costco Aston Shed

For anyone who is looking for an affordable, modern style frame for a tiny house, ala Cabin Fever, take a look at the Aston Shed by Yardline and Costco. From now until November 11, this shed will be on sale for $1,000 which includes delivery. The shed is 10 feet by 7.5 feet and Costco is selling it as a storage shed or as a small office or living space.

The shed weighs about 1,100 lbs, is 9 feet high at the front peak and contains three transom windows and a 64 inch double door. The front deck shown is not included, but it looks like it might expand the house nicely if you were to build it yourself. Heck, at this price, I would buy two of these sheds and put them next to each other.

The structure comes delivered pre-cut and includes 2×4 construction, a sold wood floor, pre-hung doors with piano hinges and wall vents. There is also a 15 year warranty. The shed will take two people about two days to complete with a hammer, cordless drill and screwdriver. The owner will need to supply their own caulking., interior and exterior paint and roof felt and shingles

Costco and Yardline recommend checking your local building codes before ordering and they don’t deliver this particular shed to Florida at this time.

Costco’s Tiny House

Ambershawn recently brought something interesting to my attention, Costco, the big box store, sells a tiny house. It is called the “HomePlace” guesthouse and is one of their many small structures. Costco builds tiny houses, play houses and garden sheds. Personally, I think the Bungalow Garden building would make a perfect tiny house, it ranges in size from 12ft X 16ft to 12ft X 24ft and the costs for what appears to be a shell range from $4,995 to $7,244.

You can select a paint color, asphalt shingle color or even have wood shingles. According to Costco, the Bungalow provides a great mix of pleasing functionality and aesthetics.

Engineered drawings are available upon request to help you get many of our Garden Buildings/Garages approved for your site. These drawings detail standard features of the unit, and provide information about snow and wind loads. Continue reading
