If you've been keeping up with all mini casa coverage (as you should be, btw), you're probably wondering, umm, where are all those tiny houses with super cool lofts? And, hey, that's a fair question, especially since it feels like every episode of Tiny House Hunters is essentially a modern version of Pimp My Ride Loft.

So it's time to present to you, dear readers, a tiny house with one of the, err, loft-iest lofts for sale on Amazon: the Allwood Avalon.

Made from light-colored Nordic wood, the Avalon is best described as a modern log cabin that would most likely make Abe Lincoln jealous—seriously, it has a 540-square-foot first floor and 218-square-foot loft. That's a lot of space, especially for a loft, in the wonderful world of tiny homes.

And thanks to all of this square footage, there is so much room to play, err, I mean set up amenities like a kitchen, bathroom, and living space. Still not enough nooks and crannies for you? Go ahead and ask the experts if you can separate your floors into, per the company's website, "room allocations" or different mini rooms (read: to hide from your kids). Each cabin is built per customer order, so dream big—or at least as big as the experts at Allwood allow (yes, the same company that made the wagon-esque wooden abode on wheels).

Available for $33,990 on Amazon, this DIY dwelling is sold as a "cabin kit," meaning you're going to need a whole lot of elbow grease to get it up and running. In fact, assembly will likely take a week and you might even need a forklift or small crane, especially if you buy extra wall planks to further winterize you tiny home. FYI: The thicker the walls, the more insulated and energy efficient the tiny home. This cold weather protection, along with other add-ons like a staircase instead of a ladder, comes at a price—all of which is outlined on the company's site.

But the question remains...
