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 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.
