Utrecht



The interior design of this barge is very simple but I love it.  The wooden flooring looks beautiful and I really, really like the purple sofa.

It is nice, Fran. Is this one you are looking at as a prospect Have you found your dream barge yet? I keep on looking even though I've been living on my own barge for nine years now. it's quite small though, and sometimes I long for space like the pics you've shown here. Correction. My daughter's living on my barge at the moment but I shall have it back soon. I am shacking up on my man's barge till she moves off.

Hi Vally, We already have our barge. We have stripped her out completely and are in the process of refitting her out (a long process as you know!) I been posting updates of our progress, but I also add pictures of ideas and inspirations, along with other bits and pieces. There are only so many pictures one can show of hatches being made or hulls being painted!!!

What I love about this one - apart from the things your already mentioned - is all that light coming in. I wonder how those top window areas behave in bad weather? I agree that the simplicity is a top feature, and I hope to find some old flooring to recycle for our barge. Some friends in a home around the corner went to get their flooring from demolished homes in the mountains - it is so full of character.

Keep posting these by the way... I am not much into hatches yet!

ps. Would love to see more of that barge. Where did you find the pics?

Hi Janys, the word 'leak' springs to mind!! But I agree the light is lovely. Here is the site, but when I went back I couldn't find the actual barge, but then I only had a quick look. Some wonderful barges on the site!
