This week’s tiny house is situated in the land of multi-million dollar homes.

Its owner, Fiver Brown, has found a life hack to live frugally in this area.

How? A floating home. It’s a former World War II lifeboat that was converted into a 481 square foot house in 1967.

The boat is 13′ x 37′ with fantastic views of the bay. Fiver says he sees stingrays, seals, fish and birds from his kitchen and loft windows.

His little house is paid off so all he has to worry about is the boat slip rental at Galilee Harbor Co-op which is located in central Sausalito, California.

FYI: Sausalito is just north of San Francisco if you used the Golden Gate Bridge to get there. The community is composed of:

  • Artists
  • Marine workers
  • Creative writers
  • Painters
  • Photographers
  • Boat-builders
