Boat Roofed Shed

December 15, 2013

From Kent Griswold’s excellent Tiny House Blog… a boat becomes a shed, but could become a shantyboat!


The shed roof is made from a clinker built boat that is 14ft long and 7ft wide at its widest point. The boat is an inshore fishing boat made between 1900 – 1910. It was placed on a frame of 4 telegraph poles with cross beams. Once in place the walls were filled in using aluminium windows from a 1940′s caravan and single glazed windows from our 400 year old farm house.
