Meet Tracy Metro and her lush 560 square foot houseboat that she and her husband live in full-time.

She’s the designer on I Live With My Mom and she calls her small houseboat the Metro Retro.

Tracy and her husband bought the boat and it had a challenging layout, so she completely changed it up as you’ll see in the video tour below.

When you walk in there’s a bar and a hangout right in the kitchen area. Go down a couple of steps and you’re in the living room.

The bedroom is interesting because it’s the opposite of what you find in most tiny houses on wheels since you crawl into it instead of climb up into it. It’s located underneath the kitchen.
