A sweet tiny houseboat that is less than nine feet wide has been built for nature lovers and fishermen looking for a little luxury in the water.
The solar-powered cabin occupies approximately 13 feet of the 26-foot-long pontoon, while the rest is an area of the outer deck to enjoy the sun and the views, or to cast a line.
