The Cozy Rosie is a saltbox style tiny house design that was built to be a simple, compact design for one person to live comfortably. The tiny house on wheels is 12 feet long by 8.5 feet wide, and 13.5 feet in height. The exterior of the Cozy Rosie uses Easter Cedar with Western Cedar trim. The Cozy Rosie has a passive solar orientation so you can move it depending on the season. The roof has a clear, north facing skylight that runs the width of the home.
The kitchen counter has a hidden tiny fridge and a 20-gallon electric water heater. The shower in this tiny house design was made out of galvanized steel roofing that sheds into a 32 inch by 32-inch fiberglass basin. The pipes are all soldered copper with simple valves. The upstairs loft has room enough for a queen sized mattress and has a sky light that runs its entire length. There is also a second, smaller loft that is located opposite the lofted bed. The staircase in this tiny house design uses seven hardwoods that are native to Indiana to include poplar, walnut, hickory, maple, cherry, red and white oak.
