The Oil Tank House Boat

In the 1939 June issue of Popular Science, there is an amusing piece of engineering and design in which Rene Tatro refurbishes a 20,000 gallon oil tank into a house boat.  It has all the fancy and fantasy of an Aristide Antonas Keg Apartment, even complete with a duck billed canvas overhang. I’m not sure about the health implications of living in a repurposed oil tank, but it sure sounds fun.
