Oct 12th, 2018: British Houseboats

Houseboats might be misleading as they dont look like other houseboats most people have seen.
House-barges? Transformed trash shelters? Live in art? Floating hobo navy?



Quote:
Tucked into the estuary of the River Adur in the coastal town of Shoreham-on-Sea in Sussex, England is a row of houseboats in dazzlingly slapdash designs and bustling with the creative energy of its residents. One such person is Hamish McKenzie, an older man with swirls of gray hair shaved into his short beard and a laid-back attitude that comes from spending most of his days living inside of a docked boat. McKenzie owns seven of the uniquely designed vessels that line the riverbank, which include a renovated boat ambulance topped with a black and white checkered public bus and an airplane nose that caps off the bow.


Quote:
McKenzie explains to Great Big Story that he had been searching for a nose cone for quite some time, and finally ran across one in a farmyard down the way from his houseboats. This ingenuity speaks to the freedom McKenzie and the other owners have while crafting their homes, which include microwaves as mailboxes and giant tractor wheels as windows. I can safely say that there is no two identical, explains McKenzie. To a large degree, they exhibit the character of the people who live on them.


I haven't seen any of these featured in any of the package tours of England.

And that, gentle Dwellars, is what happens when you leave Banksy and Damien Hirst in a room together.

Or in a junkyard together.

My great aunt and uncle had a house boat - didn't look anything like that.

Way more Rosie and Jim* than that




* one for the Brits.
