Woodworker Builds The Perfect Tiny House Boat for Life on the Water

A woodworking wizard named Richard built the Koroc – a beautiful floating tiny house RV on aluminum pontoons. It’s unbelievable what a comfortable home he’s created in such a small space. Imagine living in this micro cabin, floating on a river or a lake, and enjoying fresh air on an enormous deck? If you can’t tell already, we’re in love with this boat!

We randomly drove past this houseboat in Montebello, Quebec, Canada on our way to pick up some RV windows so we emailed the owner and asked him if we could take a tour inside and have him put it in the water for us. Luckily he said yes!

We spent a beautiful sunny afternoon on Le Koroc (built by Richard’s company Daigno) admiring his handy work. Everything in this house boat is built by hand, from the beams to the cabinets, the deck, water filter, bathroom, kitchen and more.

Richard has a solar panel for electricity, a Martin propane heater, a propane cooktop, a DIY carbon filter for filtering grey water, a self-contained toilet, two dinettes (one that converts into a double bed), and tons of windows, not to mention the huge deck. It’s off-grid minimalist living paradise!

    I'd like to know, if someone or 2 decided to make this their permanent dwelling & have no land based dwelling, where would you have your mail delivered, especially if you didn't stay in any 1 place long? Say more then a month or 2.

    I take it freshwater lake ? Jump into the water, come out, biodegradable soap up and then jump back into the water. Why the wasted space for the shower?

    I’d probably add a small bookshelf somewhere, but other than that looks great, incredible craftsmanship

    Might be OK for an overnight…

    You don't want to live in that thing. Its an overloaded boat. Unsafe by definition.
