Have you ever wanted to live on the water with your family? If so, then you are not the only ones! Today we are going to present you a barge designed and decorated to meet the needs of a Dutch family passionate about life on the water.

In addition to the desire to live on the water, the family also wanted the barge to be arranged in such a way that no one could see inside, but at the same time offer from inside a view of the water. park opposite. Different levels have been created on the boat some of which are above while others below the water. Access to the boat is possible thanks to a small footbridge. Inside, one is greeted by a skylight through which are seen treetops.

Inside the boat is clear and airy. A touch of wood with the dining table "breaks" the interior all in white. In the sitting area, the wooden floor creates heat, just like the fireplace. A small closet offers storage space for books and televisions, followed by a nice reading corner. The horizontal layout of the kitchen benefits from the length of the houseboat. The staircase leads to the bedroom, the bathroom which includes the washing machine and the dryer. Outside, a small wooden terrace allows you to enjoy the beautiful view.
