Only LOTB vessels can cruise the waterways and are engineered to freeze into the winter ice for your year round enjoyment.
Our vessels are built to allow you direct access to the shore. No dingy or tender required.
Our vessels are certified to meet all of Transport Canada's safety standards and the Construction Standards for vessels up to 24m or 80 ft long.
LOTB on the move !
LOTB has a whole new way for you to see life on the lake.
It floats !
The whole house, and garage and workshop .....
Float across the lake... any lake or river ... or ocean !
We have been living in our prototype for 2 years now. It's 80 feet long and 20 feet wide.
We enjoy all the comforts of a modern home and we can sail away to any where we like.
It is completely self sufficient. We can stay out on the lake for months or years at a time.
Hundreds of interested local home owners, cottagers and boaters have been in for a tour.
We have been INSPECTED BY ALL 3 levels of government.

Check out what our friend Karen did for us !
Colour strikes again !
Cottages are built on land.
Boats roam the bays and rivers.
Our innovation is a house boat vessel with as many floors, and bathrooms and bedrooms as you like and a garage and a workshop and a garden shed ... decks and patios as big as you like..
And it FLOATS !
So it can roam the lakes and bays and rivers !
Our first launch, named the Cagey Vixen, has 1900 square feet of interior living space plus 3588 square feet of exterior living space including 106 ft of 8ft wide dock and an upper deck patio area of 1900 square feet plus and front and back decks.
The whole thing can float to anywhere you like… the middle of a lake, to an island or even to a marina. There are 36,000 crown land islands in Georgian Bay alone.. Any of them welcomes you and your family to stay for a day or 2 or 3 weeks… then when you decide, you can move to another.. or we can do the move for you … or you can just float about in the middle of a bay.
We'd like to share with you in person... see what we've built and talk to us about what your ideal home or cottage houseboat will look like.
Imagine the home or cottage you want.
We'll build it for you ... no limits
We run two refrigerators, A/C, 65" TVs, and every other comfort of a modern home! No Problem!
No services required. You're totally self sufficient.
The best view and it can change every week.
Your heated garage can be right on the trail.
Sit by the fireplace and plan your next winter adventure
We have worked hard to make your WaterHome enjoyable year round.
How do you build a home or cottage on the lake without cutting a single tree?
Without digging up any land?
Without moving a single rock?
Without drilling a well?
Without leaching sewage into the land?
Without disturbing any shoreline at all?
Without hydro poles or underwater cables?
Without disturbing nature at all?
Your dream... Let's make it a plan !
Conventional construction or shipping containers.
No one has ever put all these ideas together ...
so LOTB did.....
