Most tiny houses are shaped roughly like RVs. This isn’t a surprise considering that motorhomes were essentially tiny houses before we had the term “tiny house” in our vocabularies. Naturally they paved the way and offered inspiration for modern tiny house layouts.
So it’s always interesting to me when I see a builder go with the cube shape instead of the long profile. The Cozy Rosie by Carpenter Owl does fit on a trailer, and can easily be hauled from one location to another. But it measures 12’ long by 8.5’ wide by 13.5’ high. So it would look quite unusual parked next to most other tiny abodes.
One person lives in the Cozy Rosie.
The siding is Eastern Cedar, and the trim is Western Cedar.
There is some extra storage underneath the home.
The kitchen is incredibly tiny, but certainly fits the definition of “cozy.”
The wood used for the interior is just gorgeous—exactly what I would expect from any tiny house built by Carpenter Owl.
Underneath the kitchen counter, there is an electric water heater with a 20 gallon capacity. There is also a mini fridge.
Here is a closer look at the beautiful stairs. You also can appreciate the slatted wood used on the right-hand wall as well as the ceiling.
This shot of the stairs is somewhat puzzling, as is the next one. It looks like the stairs lead absolutely nowhere. In actuality, they lead up to the loft. The last “step” is simply a big one.
The loft is sure tiny as well—but the skylight is positioned directly over it, providing a lovely view of the sky and lots of light. If desired, a queen size mattress can fit here.
There is also a window on the wall below.
What you are looking at here is the shower. The walls are galvanized steel, and the basin is fiberglass.
I love how self-contained this little abode is. It goes to show that the best things in life really do show up in tiny packages.
There is a short video you can watch here showing off the exterior of the home:
