Are you into fishing and swimming and everything water especially quite water like lakes and rivers. Does your whole family like to be a part of it too but it is a real hassle loading up the boat every time you want to go out. Maybe you should look at building a houseboat. It may sound like a daunting task but these days, with the easy to use woodworking patterns and plans you will find it an easy and fun project.
Once you have it done you can have it anchored at your favorite waterway just waiting for the next weekend or your next vacation. With a house boat you stay on board all weekend. You sleep on there and eat on there and fish from there and swim from there and generally just have great family fun.
If you check out some plans and patterns you will see just how easy it will be to build. What you need to do now is decide on the size and design that you want. Probably the best way to do that is to hire a houseboat for a weekend and try it out. Take notes of sizes and features and work out how you would do it differently.
There are usually houseboat hire places at many popular water ways. Some of the more popular waterways are inundated with houseboats as people take part in this popular vacation. Some even live on board permanently and row a small boat ashore to go to work leaving a vehicle near by.
Imagine coming home every night to your houseboat and eating on the deck under the stars. Sleeping with the gentle rocking of the water and the sound of the small waves tinkling against the hull. Sort of sleeping on a giant water bed.
The effect would be the same. You could have a rod over the side all the time and catch your meals fresh every day. Sounds like a pretty good life. The authorities will pull up along side regularly to pump out your toilet system so you don’t pollute the waterway.
Once you have the main hull together you will only have the house part to do and it will soon take shape. With the woodworking plans these days it will be a breeze for you. Just do one step at a time as you follow the step by step instructions and you can’t go wrong.
So if you would fancy a houseboat but thought the building of it would be too much have another look. You will be surprised how easy it will be and you will be cruising those waterways in no time at all.
