Meet Jay Blackmore (@floatinthekoots) and his incredible DIY Off-Grid Floating Home that he spent four years building in his “spare” time.
Not only did he build it, but he also designed the entire thing and did all the work except the electrical and gas hookups (probably wise!). The home is about 700 square feet and includes an open concept living room and kitchen, and a second floor with two bedrooms. The home is heated in the freezing Canada winters by his pellet stove (or a back-up propane heater) and even some gas lamps!
Make sure to watch the video from Exploring Alternatives to hear Jay explain his incredible closed-loop system for his gray water!

This is Wes’ Secret History Tiny Shanty Boat: A tiny home with a mission!
From Wes, and his website:
This is the Secret History shantyboat that is part of a larger project to float major American Rivers to collect the stories of river communities. I’ve been doing it for three years now and traveled with my shantyboat over 1000 miles and talked to thousands of people about the river….
A Secret History of American River People is a project to build a collection of personal stories of people who live and work on the river from the deck of a recreated 1940s-era shantyboat over a series of epic river voyages. The project explores the issues facing current river communities, the long history of people who have lived on and adjacent to the river, and basic river ecology.
Wow! That’s incredible. He shared some great pictures of his little shanty with us that you can enjoy below. Find out more about how he built the shanty here (that post answers a lot of FAQs, so be sure to check it out).

In this post, I’m going to show you a micro houseboat that you can probably build yourself if you wanted to.
You know, one of my favorite things about tiny houses, micro cabins, and “alternative” structures is that you can be as creative as you want about it. You can build tiny however and wherever you want… On wheels or on the water (like this micro houseboat). Up in the trees or underground.
