WOW! Walmart is Selling a Barn-Style Tiny Home for $9,270

You gotta love it when a discounter tries to convince their customers that they sell tiny houses under $10,000, only for the customer to find out after purchasing that they can’t live in it without tens of thousands of dollars more to make it even minimally livable. 

The retail chain said the stylish timber house will be delivered to your door in just seven days.
