The less expensive alternative is to buy several aluminum pontoon fishing boats and weld those together (the pontoons only) but all that are available within a reasonable distance seem to be only 24" in diameter. Location: North Texas Thanks Ike I posted here because most of the folks on the other forum seem to prefer ready builts. I would suggest that if you want to retire on a houseboat that you look for a maintenance free construction as far as possible. If you weld these end to end there will be an area that is difficult to get to and maintain and I would think they would rust out eventually. We only have steel tanks here so if yours are aluminium forget what I said if you haven't already done so. If they are steel like ours may I suggest that you devise a way of strapping them on to the underside of your pontoon and that way you can release them for inspection or replacement. Also if you don't know, sorry if I am insulting your intelligence if you do, try and learn something about flotation so you will know what volume of cylinder will support what weight. Have a look at some houseboats and see if you can find one you want to build and take the measurements. Location: Maryland If you look around, you may find a variety of commercial used barges and similar items that might work for you. Barges or floats like this are also one of the areas where ferrocement makes sense, since you could build a mold that would turn out a bunch of similar parts.
The green one in the first photo is 16.5' x 40' and has a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom.
Location: Lakeland Fl USA CDBarry has a practical solution with his barge suggestion.

Like the guys said I to would go for a barge as a base, makes more sense both from a stability point of view and one of maintainance! Of course you can build it out of propane cylinders, blow yourself up to if you don't 'gas free' the bloody things but hell that's a lot of hard work! Location: Eagle, Alaska Propane cylinders are heavy wall steel and they would be dangerous to start cutting and welding on, just as old gas barrels are, which is why you chisel a lid off and not go to torching or cutting with an abrasive wheel. Location: finland should work - you had a comma in your link text and con instead of com in the actual url address. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.

I was hoping someone with design experience or hands-on building experience on this designers forum could offer advice.
Augustine, FL, USA For the Flagler Floating Homes we built plywood barges and covered them with fiberglass. You could probably buy 2 24foot aluminum pontoon boats on Ebay for less than 5k each, or get the barge from Ted655, but propane cylinders would not be wise and require a ton of work. This great boat has a slender 14' beam and is lighter than the larger high-end models, perfect for exploring the lake. We endeavor to be as accurate as possible, but make sure you confirm pricing with your customer service agent before booking any trip. Six years in the Navy and five years roaming Mexico have pretty well cured this country boy of long distance wanderlust. Further than that, if you want to get uninvolved with some demanding local woman you can steal away in the dark of night. 1 sleeping area with 2 double beds bunked, 1 stateroom with 2 double beds bunked, large front deck with table, chairs, and gas grill, catwalk. I have seen sizeable barges moved by a modest sized Yamaha 4 stroke outboard that swings a humongous wheel.
We found a really good deal & the wife didn't want to take time (I work slow) for me to build the topsides.
