This tiny home has been through so much but it's still standing!

The house was built back in 1968 by a group of boys who wanted a spot to sunbathe while at the river. Rather than settling on the comfort of raw bedrock, they took to constructing a building from wood boards reclaimed from a nearby shed that had been destroyed. Getting the materials onto the rock was no easy task — the wood was brought over by boat or kayak , and heftier pieces were taken upstream and left to float downstream where they were caught by the boys on the rock. In addition to a sun-bathing deck, the home boasts a small room. While several severe storms and floods have wreaked havoc on the construction over the last 45 years, the home has always been brought back to good repair.
