Floating Barge Home and Workshop Built by Teens and Dad


Watch this video from Kirsten Dirksen as she interviews Eddie Ebel and his teen sons who are constructing their floating barge home.

Floating Barge Home and Workshop

Teens and Dad start a mission to construct a floating barge and workshop to house their family of 12 in an effort to travel between Oregon and Alaska teaching communities how to become more self-reliant and to live sustainable.  They want to help people fix things and learn to fix things. Their barge is the beginning of a “Live-aboard” community that they call the Pacific Iceberg.  Using floats, they invented a construction technique that allows their barge to act as a floating dock that can be expanded in order to grow.
