Potted plants adorn the simple porch and fire pit area, letting the ocean views take the spotlight.
The front door leads into the open concept main living area and kitchen. Planked walls throughout the house add to the cozy cottage style.
The other side of the living room features an open stairway to the bedroom loft. When furniture space is limited, it's nice to have a couple of ottomans available for extra seating when guests are present.
The white cabinets and polished nickel hardware make for a timeless kitchen. Different counter top finishes add an interesting touch. The marble counter top on the island contrasts beautifully with the matte black counter tops in the rest of the kitchen.
White cabinetry continues into the bathroom for a coherent look. Built in storage cabinets make the most out of the small space.
The loft proves that a bedroom does not have to be large to be stunning. The large arched window adds the perfect touch. When it comes to a beachfront property, you can never have too many windows.
When square footage is limited, tall arched ceilings are the perfect solution. It helps what could be a cramped space feel open and roomy.

Both beach and forest views? What a dream!

Welcome to Rookwood Cottage. This lovely tiny house on wheels was conceptualized by the masterminds at Incredible Tiny Homes. It was completely custom-built for its owner, who was quite hands-on during the entire process.
