Kokosing: Nantucket-Esque Cottage on Wheels

This post contains affiliate links.

This is the Kokosing, a Nantucket-esque cottage on wheels built by Modern Tiny Living that’s for sale in Ohio.

One of the coolest features of this THOW is the raised living room with comfortable u-shaped seating to create a cozy spot for watching TV or catching up with friends. When the night is done, the space converts to another sleeping area. Storage steps (with space to hang clothing!) lead up to the vast loft bedroom, and the large kitchen means you can cook whatever you’d like (ok, maybe not a turkey) for dinner.

Get the rest of the details, price and contact information for Modern Tiny Living below and enjoy the picture tour!

Kokosing: Nantucket-Esque Cottage on Wheels

Bay window area allows for a super cozy living room.

Looking from the living room to the rest of the house.

The blue of the cabinets is to die for! So classy.

Love having the washer/dryer included.

Excellent deep sink for washing dishes (or maybe hiding them).

Amazing bench seating that actually looks comfortable.

Even more storage! Always a must in a tiny house.

Now you (or your guests) are ready for a good night’s sleep.

Another storage cabinet that could double as seating.

These white counter tops are quite gorgeous.

Looking from the bathroom to the rest of the house.

Four-burner stove top and a convection oven.

Sliding doors are becoming more common in THOWs and it’s great.

A table set for two, right in front of a quaint window.

Those blue stools match the aesthetic perfectly!

Need more space? It folds down against the wall.

Looking down from the loft. Love the built-in shelving.

What would you put on these shelves? Books? Albums? Trinkets?

The shiplap walls and ceilings are so quaint.

Taking a peek into the bathroom at the back of the home.

Nature’s Head composting toilet and tee-tiny sink.

Snug, but what more do you need? Love it.

Spacious shower stall (notice the ventilation! Important!).

Cute white tiling on the floor. I’m a fan.

Better view of the storage inside the staircase.

Room to hang dresses, suits and anything else you’d like.

Loft bedroom with a sturdy safety rail. No falling here!

These side windows are just what every loft needs to feel open.

A spot to put things “upstairs” too.

Just think: This could be your new home sweet home!

Details and price below this picture! Enjoy.

    Where in Ohio? Would sleep downstairs and let hubby have his man “cave”😉 Only thing I would change would be composting toilet! Love the colors and deep sink

    Well I would make some changes to this house. I’ll start with the bathroom. Window should be in back of toilet,Put mirror over sink,hate composting toilet,put in RV slow flush toilet. Next Kitchen. I would remove that large blue cabinet,it is too high up,remove the large refrigerator and put in an apartment size in with a small cabinet above,next take out that cook top and put in a apartment size stove,remove that washer/dryer unit and put in small cabinet. Under staircase put washer /dryer unit. Remove the bench next to washer/dryer unit. Hand rail need to be on other side of stair case. This would then be perfect for me especially at that price that they are asking.

      You should ask them for a custom design 🙂

    Just beautiful….

    lI do not say this often…….but I love this house! Especially the kitchen! And I would make that front area my bedroom! Bath a little larger to have a larger shower. Love the colors! Would bring that range hood further down. Not doing much good, up so high. I think that is a convection/microwave…so may not need a range..but would rather a range. I could ramble on..but until I have that kind of cash…it is just a dream. Will keep it in my files, though!

    And I am sure the builder could come up with something. Now where to find that kind of money!

      Don’t forget to budget in the 50k diesel truck to haul it.

        If you don’t move it often, it would make more sense to rent a truck for a few days.

    Wow! I think this is a fabulous build. The bay window approach on the hitch end is really nice. Love the acacia floors & the blue cabinets. The overall interior design, layout, & colors work so well together. The tile in the kitchen & bath is very nice & doesn’t overpower the surroundings. Tasty! There is next to nothing I would change on this build. Very modern yet still has an amazing homey feel to it.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 8, 2017, 2:20 pm

      Yes and it can be so hard to “homey” and “modern” to mix! The bay window is the best.

    Wow! This is very nice. I love the clean, bright look inside and out. The loft has plenty of windows, and the downstairs seating area is so nicely different from what I’ve seen in too many tiny houses. A lot of versatility and well-planned storage spaces. The built-in book cases give this house a luxurious feel that many of them lack. LOVE the kitchen, especially the big fridge and the “big house” look of the place. Well done!

      So glad you like it 🙂 I agree, the home is really stunning.

    I love this home as it is. Finding a place to park one on private property is my biggest challenge in Michigan.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 9, 2017, 1:26 pm

      It is a big challenge! You should check out tryittiny.net — They connect people who are renting out land to tiny housers.

      I would much rather park it in Michigan (Go Blue!) than Ohio any day! 😘

  • Pam

    What’s not to love? The layout and colors are fabulous! I wouldn’t change anything except the toilet. It needs a regular flush toilet. I’d make sure to be on land with a septic system/hookup.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 12, 2017, 3:38 pm

      I’m sure they’d love to put in a real toilet for you 🙂 Glad you liked it!

    One of the best floor plans I’ve seen.
    I love the colors.
    The only change I would make, if ordering one,would be to move washer-dryer to corner by fridge and shelves over it for laundry soap, towels,etc..

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 12, 2017, 3:38 pm

      That’s a great idea!

    This is one of the best designs, and well thought out tiny houses I’ve seen. Hit pretty much every one of my “must haves”. Beautiful colors, great layout, awesome design. Love it. I’m saving for this one. Hoping there would be an option for solar power as well.

      Re the high “inaccessible” cabinet — it could be changed to a 2′ depth, extended into the loft, and and adding one of the sliding closet rods that opens from the end in the loft. Great hanging space.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 12, 2017, 3:36 pm

      Oh solar power would be great! I’m sure they’d love to work with you on that.

  • Fiona

    This is definitely one of my favorites. I would love to see it with a few less costly features to bring the cost down. My only real complaint on the house is having that heat pump unit on the front of the house. It really takes away from the exterior look. (Of course I would tweak the design to what would work a little better for me.)

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 15, 2017, 11:17 am

      Yes I’m sure a few more basic touches could bring down the price a decent amount!

    I love the concept of tiny houses and this one really makes use of little areas for extra storage. such a shame that housing costs have risen so high in some areas that young families cannot afford even a 1000 sq ft home. but in some areas of the country for 80,000 can buy a 3 br 2 ba in a nice neighborhood.

    Add some built-in cutting boards (which no one seems to be doing anymore) to increase workspace/counter space, and you’d have a nearly perfect place.

    Lovely and well laid out.
