Beach Hut Tuesday - Lucas Kuys' Ark

The Ark is abstract artist Lucas Kuys' floating beach hut (put on the market last month for £60,000) at Burnham Overy Staithe, near King's Lynn, Norfolk. It's 16ft 5in x by 6ft (1.8m) and built on a raft using driftwood, reclaimed wood and the roof of a grocery van. It's been in situ, anchored so that it doesn't float away, for around 50 years since it was built by a local doctor.Via The Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph where there is lots more detail.

  3. Fond memories on the Ark, sharing laughter with my best friend Nicole, Lyn & Lucas' daughter. Such a fabulous place to spend beautiful sunny days.
