SHANTYBOAT (scratchbuilt)
A shantyboat is a small crude (also called a flatboat, broadhorn, barge, scow, or ark). There is a long forgotten history in America of people living in homemade shantyboats, a reasonable and cost-free solution for displaced people in rural areas and workers in urban areas.

  1. Splendid job, Gökhan!

  2. Very nice, would love to have a vacation home like that!

  3. Nice. A refuge from outside pressure. I like the way you made the water look . a slightly acidified look that back waters tend to do. Great job.

  4. Agree on the previous comment, Gökhan @gokhan_arican
