Couple Living in a Tent on a Self-Built Raft – Floating Off the Grid

Jojo and Norah are on the adventure of a lifetime! They live in a tent on a self-built raft and travel around Sweden’s lakes via the Dalsland Canal. Their raft measures 2.9-meter x 7-meter and it’s built with impregnated wood and 28 x 200 litre barrels. It weighs a total of 1.5 tonnes and is powered by a 6 hp 2-stroke engine.

You can follow Jojo and Norah’s adventures here:

The couple has created a surprisingly cozy little float home on the raft with a bed, a table and chairs, and even a woodstove! For electricity, they have 2x 150-watt solar panels and 3 batteries.

When they visit small towns along their route they carry groceries and gas cans on a homemade handcart.

Their tent is a Sibley 500 Protech tent by Canvas Camp:
