Selling the House, Chasing the Dream: The Tiny Wave Journey

Making the Move: From Minnesota to Florida

The Moga family had a dream – to embrace the coastal lifestyle in sunny Florida. They envisioned a tiny home that would seamlessly blend with the coastal environment, and Movable Roots was just the team to bring their dream to life. Leaving behind their standard foundation home in Minnesota, the Mogas embarked on a new adventure, and The Tiny Wave became their coastal sanctuary.

Exterior: Waves of Inspiration

The exterior of The Tiny Wave immediately captures the essence of coastal living. Movable Roots’ design team took the Moga family’s vision and transformed it into reality. The most striking feature is a custom metal-inspired “wave” adorning the exterior, cleverly integrated with coastal-themed cedar shake siding. A retractable 20-foot wide awning offers shade during Florida’s scorching summers, ensuring comfort year-round.

One can’t help but notice the custom-designed storage area for two kayaks, allowing the Mogas to safely stow their watercraft. This thoughtful addition ensures that their outdoor adventures are never far from home.

Interior: Coastal Comfort Meets Clever Design

The interior of The Tiny Wave reflects the coastal theme while prioritizing functionality. Bright coastal colors, large windows, and skylights infuse the space with a relaxed, coastal feel. The kitchen, strategically designed around the Moga’s preference for a large refrigerator, is a testament to Movable Roots’ commitment to customizing every aspect of their tiny homes.

To accommodate their curious feline companions, the cabinetry extends to the ceiling, providing additional storage space and keeping the cats from reaching the top.

The loft area, designed to serve as an office, cleverly integrates a “foot hole” in the floor for comfortable desk seating.

The bathroom, larger than most apartment bathrooms, boasts custom tile work in the shower and a vessel sink that continues the coastal theme. It also houses a stackable washer and dryer, and a well-thought-out litter box placement with a “cat door” and additional vent fan ensures the comfort of the furry family members.

Master Bedroom: Style Meets Functionality

Inspired by Movable Roots’ Lee Model Design closet space, the Moga’s bedroom features a built-in storage queen bed frame with custom cabinetry above it. The not-so-tiny closet space includes six generous drawers for folded clothes, hanging space for various wardrobe options, and a lighted glass door cabinet for showcasing valuables.


Starting at $155,000, The Tiny Wave is an investment in a lifestyle that blends luxury with compact living. The price tag for the pictured model is $185,000, reflecting the extensive customization and attention to detail that Movable Roots brings to each project.
