William Atkins' Retreat

The idea of a floating shed is a very appealing one. Here's a design which is shedlike rather than deliberately sheddish, the Retreat by William Atkins. Here's how the site describes it:
"There is an entrance each end. The forward, or main cabin, is fitted with a coal burning yacht's range, sink, and ice box one side; comfortable upholstered seat, drop leaf table, shelves and lockers the other side. There will be an additional shelf over the sink and ample room under the forward deck for stowage as well as room for a good sized water tank. The sleeping cabin is fitted with single berth; chest of drawers; lockers; hanging locker; and W. C. located beneath the seat which forms a step at the after entrance."
There are lots more simple but attemptable small boat designs to browse around on the site.
