It has folding cat walks on both sides. The cabin is 19 feet long by 10 feet wide, so 190 square feet of indoor living space. He also has a rooftop deck for added living space (and amazing views).via: Exploring Alternatives

Denis built this boat 4 years ago using a welded aluminum frame, cedar wood, tin siding, and other reclaimed materials. He built most of the cabinets and furniture with salvaged wood and metal, and antiques, for a very unique look.


The thatch roof is actually made with plastic from recycled milk cartons. It’s more durable than real thatch, and it’s lighter than using metal or shingles for the roof.The boat is on 4-season pontoons that can freeze into the ice without damaging the boat..read more(Exploring Alternatives).
