New post: Why I decided to buy a houseboat


"I was never cut out for the truly nomadic life that I thought Id love; I travel for a living and assumed Id drift from place to place, rent free, my possessions in one bag, having adventures.

What actually happened was an exercise in stress and suitcase-dragging.

Hello Spectacled Raven, delighted to welcome such a fine member of the corvid family to the board!

Aw, glad you liked the article. Faith has written two more - one about the details of decorating for a small houseboat space and one about companionship and community and living solo and how that can all work on a boat. We're publishing them weekly so I can keep you posted x

Raven, this one is for you. Part 2 of the series!

Faith's houseboat decorating tips for small spaces

Faith's tastes run towards 'enchanted grotto' not minimalism. She offers all kinds of practical tips for thinking about making the most of houseboat space, including storage and greenery and even having tiny foldaway shrines :)

Thanks for letting me know Magda. I love how she has decorated the place - the challenge with small spaces is how to make the space multifunctional as well as full of character and she has totally nailed it.

The tree trunks on the walls were fab :)
