This Love Shack Tiny House Boat was submitted by Jeff & Sherry – share yours!

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. One time a fire truck was coming back from a fire and one of the fire fighters said, “that is @!#%ing Awesome!” to his fellow fire fighters.

The design of tiny homes owes a lot to the design of boats, and while I’ve spent a lot of time in tiny houses on wheels, I’ve had practically no experience with life on the water. So I decided that staying in a docked, 25-foot sailboat would be a fun counterpoint to my time in tiny homes.

I spent two nights on the “Mother Goose”, which is available on Airbnb as a nightly rental in Port Angeles, Washington. My two nights on the water were a fun experiment in small spaces, and a great opportunity for me to briefly try on boat living.

The Mother Goose

The Mother Goose is probably best for one person or a couple. It has a full bed that narrows considerably at the foot, an eating nook that can convert into a single bed if needed, and a minimal kitchen with an icebox, electric kettle, and sink that drains directly into the water. There are several little storage areas, and no real bathroom, but there were nice centralized facilities a brief walk from the dock.
