Ships get a second life on land, becoming a home.

When the ships and boats are unsuitable for sea travel, it does not necessarily mean that they are doomed to rot somewhere in the cemetery of old ships. Some of them get a second life on land, becoming a home. And sometimes vice versa - the houses are built like ships.




House-ship Benson Ford, Lake Erie, Ohio



This ship was built and launched in 1924. It belonged to the Ford Motor Company and was used for the transportation of iron ore and other materials on the Great Lakes (on the border of the United States and Canada). In December 1981, a ship bought Frank Sullivan, who, five years later, it has separated the bow and made him a four-story old house with total area of ​​650 square meters.




Some rooms are designed personally by Henry Ford.
