Alternative living means finding a home in a place that isn’t considered ‘the norm’.
Many people are attracted by this alternative lifestyle as it allows them to create an original, beautiful, and safe place to live without bankrupting themselves in the process. Some popular alternative living options are buses, boats, vans, and homes built with recycled materials such as pallets and shipping containers.
The uprise of #Vanlife (first used in 2011), is proof of how many people are now leaving behind the traditional lifestyle and opting for something more original and free.
#BoatThings is a YouTube Channel owned by Planet Things with the purpose to showcase a different and alternative kind of living. It follows the journey of a canal boat renovation in London.
