What This Guy Did With This Old Boat Will Make You So Jealous. This Is Epic.

I’ve got a real love/hate relationship with anything that deals with property transformations, home improvements or DIY. These are some of the largest time wasters on the internet. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t say this as a bad thing… More of a form of addiction whose narcotic effect is something that really gets my gears turning and throws me into a daydreaming state where I quickly realize I’m drowning in the possibilities of what ‘could be’.

While sifting through the photos I noticed something peculiar that caught my eye. The windows on this house, with a large, open floor plan, didn’t quite seem kosher. The next photo I saw had an extremely odd door, almost like it belonged in a submarine. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that the photos I was looking at were actually a converted barge. Talk about upcycling an old unused piece of machinery.
