Wooden House Boats
house boats can be very unique. One of the great things about them is
that you can actually feasibly build one yourself. There are plans out
there that you can purchase that pretty much show you how.
When it comes to wooden houseboats, there are plenty of options because you can literally design and construct yourself!
If you want something that can easily be towed, you can—all while
still having the ability to live aboard and use it as a camper too.
couple I know of named Sandi and Lee Freeman actually built their own
houseboat in their own backyard... It sounds crazy but they had the
hull constructed at a local lumberyard, then had it covered in
fiberglass, and did the rest themselves...
They got bombarded with so
many questions that they decided it was best to write a book about the
entire experience. In it they share their entire story, how they
selected the right boat plans, what materials they used and where they
got them, step by step tips, photos, preventing problems, working with
fiberglass, interior design, construction, and so much more.
you're thinking about building your own houseboat, this is a great book
to have. And it's super value at just $13—you'll be happy you got it
because you'll absorb all of Sandi and Lee's experience after reading
and looking through all their pictures.
Order Sandi and Lee's Dream Building book.
