Spent 7 months building ‘floatable’ house

Sinar Plus reported that the 67-year-old man used 69 plastic barrels and wooden boards under his home to make his home ‘float’ above the water.

He began the project after he was frustrated by the constant flooding in Terengganu and spent the next seven months completing it.

Alhamdulillah, the houseboat was able to float,” he wrote in the caption.

He also showed viewers how his motorcycle was saved from being damaged by floodwater.

He spent around RM47,000 building the ‘floatable’ house, where he was aided by his seven children.
