This dreamy tiny home has its own pizza oven inside

What’s cozier than snuggling up in a tiny home? Snuggling up to your very own pizza oven and fireplace in said tiny home.

Rebekah and Robert Sofia, a couple currently based in Summerfield, Florida, dreamed up the bohemian-inspired design and built it themselves in a little less than two years.

“We were inspired by the idea of freedom and the ability to enjoy and live without limits,” Rebekah Sofia told TODAY Home. “I am a designer and Robert is a sculptor and engineer, and we’ve worked together for many years.”

What sets this tiny home apart from others is the unique artistic design. The exterior features tin and reclaimed cedar siding along with a cypress trim on the roof. The square and round windows add even more interest to the property.

Who wouldn't want to crash here?

Inside, you’ll find dreamy decor with flowy curtains, vintage chandeliers and gorgeous, jewel-toned pops of color throughout.

The Sofias paid close attention to the tiniest of details, from the variety of pretty knobs on the kitchen cabinets and drawers to the studs in the wall outside of the bathroom.

Every detail counts!

While the decor is mostly light and airy, dark wood covers the floor and ceiling, giving the interior a rich overall feeling. The tree branch handrail on the stairs keeps with the natural theme and provides a fun and interesting piece to look at.

But one of the best features of the property is the pizza oven-slash-fireplace that’s built into the kitchen. “We’ve had fireplaces in our other homes, and I always loved it for the ambiance and cooking so, my husband, being the engineer, worked it out!” Sofia said. “It's doubly insulated and doesn't heat up the house unless we open the door.”

A pizza oven? In a tiny home? What could be cozier?!

She said the intelligent design allows the oven to get up to 800 degrees and still stay cool on the exterior. “Right now, we are using it about twice a month, but as the weather cools, we will use it a lot more.”
