Tiny House Precariously Perched On A Rock Withstands Severe Flooding

This tiny house was built in 1968 by a group of boys who wanted a spot to sunbathe, and instead of settling for the bedrock they decided to build on top of it. The result is this study little structure which, despite appearances, has withstood severe flooding of the Drina River, Serbia, for decades.



Constructed from reclaimed pieces of wood from a nearby shed, the boys had to carry the wood over by kayak, or as with the heavier, taken upstream and allowed to float downstream where they were siphoned off.


In the past 45 years the little retreat had fallen into disarray, until recently when it was brought back into good repair by the locals.

  1. What a unique and interesting house. I’d love to wake up there in the morning and drink a cup of coffee on the porch. I wonder if it’s open for visitors….
