This fantastic couple came across a shed-on-the-water and purchased it sight-unseen! It ended up needing a total overhaul inside to make it into the adorable living space they now have.
Their marina payment is under $300/month, making it an affordable place to live. Plus, they’ve noticed that their resting heart rate has lowered since they moved in — something about the peace offered by the water. Enjoy their tour below!

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).

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.
