Shantyboats- more of ’em…(kinda this week’s THEME of sorts…)

Aside from tiny homes and small-house architecture I’m a huge fan of houseboats/floating homes and shantyboats (one of my favorite books EVER is “Shantyboat” by Harlan Hubbard) so, here’s another look (this time a video) at a cool looking little boat.

More to come too, by way of a photo gallery of sorts….

If I’m not mistaken they used these plans http://www.duckworksbbs.com/plans/browne/lisa-b-good/index.htm and made some changed to the house to fit their needs. Oh yes they plans are also very very spendy…. FREE!

If I was going to build this boat I would use new lumber for the hull, unless I found some really good used lumber for the hull. Then what every I could find for the house.
