I have been living tiny now, floating, in fact, off and on when not teaching internationally. I have a 35 foot by 12.5 foot 2006 Aqualodge houseboat I am now selling in Miami, Florida. It just came out of the shipyard with a freshly painted bottom and sterling survey. It’s tied up at a marina in Miami Florida where the buyer could probably continue to live aboard as long as they call themselves ” year round cruisers.” It’s a wonderful way to live.
I am sadly selling it for $52,000 as I am moving to California. I have owned it for 3+years.

After dreaming and reading tiny house blogs and live aboard blogs for a few years we have made the move aboard. My wife and I live on a 1984 Catalina 36ft sailboat in Boston Harbor.
She and I sold or donated much of our furniture, clothes, and other items we no longer used. We made the move last October after being married in September of 2012. Hence the boat name, “Just Married.”
Thanks for the great inspiration to make BIG tiny decisions.
Inspiration for Boathouse Comes from Tiny House Movement
by Karen Jenkins
I’d like to tell you that my family and I are fully immersed in the tiny house movement… that we sold our four-bedroom home in the suburbs and have downsized to keep only the necessities to live in a tiny house full-time. But, alas, that is not the case. And so as not to mislead all of you incredibly brave early-adopters of this fascinating movement, I thought I’d be upfront about that right off the bat.
What we have done, however, is to purchase what would be considered a tiny-home that was in major disrepair, and we then relied heavily on the stories, photos and advice from the Tiny-Home Blog for our inspiration. And for that, I thank you. I don’t think anyone (especially my husband) would have thought we could turn a floating 10×22 boathouse into a place that our family of five could actually live comfortably, but with your help we did. I thought I’d share some of our journey. Continue Reading »

My “trailer on a toon” project came to fruition one evening while sitting in my backyard with my wife discussing some of the more memorable vacations we had. We both agreed that our recently purchased Chalet hard sided folding trailer was a great deal of fun, but that the lack of privacy at camp grounds was always an issue with us. We also agreed that time spent on or near the water was a high priority, and that Lake Powell was one of our favorite spots. We considered a speed boat purchase, but we both felt it would probably only see the water a few days a year. Quite simply, I blurted out, “Why not put the Chalet on top of a pontoon boat?”
The response from her was that I probably had one too many adult beverages and that it was time for bed. The idea lingered in the back of my head for a couple of months until I got the tape measure out, measured the Chalet and started making chalk marks on the driveway. Then it was serious.
