Unlike most tiny homes on wheels that can be driven to a new location, this new prefabricated tiny home model is designed to be broken down and reassembled in less than a day.

The free-standing home can be assembled on-site without a foundation. Residents of the KODA home can easily relocate in one day—the house can be assembled in seven hours, and dismantled in as little as four to prepare for transport.
The designers at Kodasema were inspired to create a housing model that answered to the needs of today's homeowners while still bringing a fresh sense of design to a sustainable, healthy, and easy to assemble home.
