Stones and Boats

This old photo of a stable for ponies on one of the Shetland Islands built from an overturned wooden hull is another example of how boats and stones have been successfully used in combination to create dwelling places in much the same way the pre-Viking people who came to Arctic Canada did over a thousand years ago.

Here is another boat roof/stone foundation combination in France Brittany, Douarnenez Port Rhu, using an old upturned double-ender hull to form a roof for a boat shaped stone cottage
