The Love Shack Tiny House Boat

He purchased this and is in the process of wanting to fix this up to a comfy Love Shack. To be honest when he first bought it I was like, “what the heck! Is that an ice shack?” Then I saw the passion that he had for wanting to fix it up… That is when I had to change it up to the Love Shack and after the first time we took it out on the water, people seem to really Love it – even just driving behind it as the back up person I had my window open and peoples comments were so fun to hear.

The River Den - A Cozy Houseboat Set on the Gatineau River in Quebec

Berthed along the Gatineau River, the houseboat is available to rent through AirBnB. The getaway has been dubbed The River Den, or La Tannière in French. It’s been built by Bonnie (see the video below) who, at the time, was investigating alternative living solutions that were more affordable than the status quo. The result is a fully insulated, functional small home. Bonnie and her co-creator Mat are no stranger to alternative dwellings – they previously converted a van for full-time living. The boat is heated by an old antique wood stove, is fully insulated and features double-glazed windows to minimize heat loss (some of which were custom built for the project). The interior is kitted out with an array of different furniture pieces and curiosities. Bluefield Houseboats - A Contemporary Home Kitted Out with Smart Technology.

Baca Architects and Floating Homes Create a Contemporary Houseboat

Working alongside the British company Floating Homes, they’ve produced a small but luxurious prototype home. The design won an ideas competition that was based on alternative dwellings that would help alleviate London’s housing crisis. It’s set in the Chichester Canal of southern England, and has been simply titled Chichester. The architects took inspiration from canal boats, but increased the scale of the vessel to accommodate larger living areas. Plenty of windows were included to create bright rooms, and to allow occupants to soak up the surrounding views. The interior features an open plan layout between the living room, dining area, and kitchen. Living on a 4 Season Houseboat - Beautiful Floating Tiny House!

Complemented by 150 hectares of “bluefield” space in the docklands and marinas, this conceptual design aims to bring 7,500 affordable homes to the British capital.

The entry, named “Buoyant Starts” aims to provide high-quality, prefab floating homes at an affordable price and engage the underused water spaces of the capital.

The second concept called Innovation Licence focuses on providing one-off building permits for projects that don’t comply with London’s current planning policy.
