The video began with a wide shot of the house.
The viewer could see the hull and the unusual shape of the structure, which clearly indicated that the house was once a boat.
Off-camera, Kallie said, “Things about my house, which used to be a boat, just make sense.”
The first thing she showed was a ladder that she used instead of stairs to move between floors.
Kallie said: “Instead of a normal staircase there is a ladder to get to the top. We don’t have stairs.”
She continued: “The door is more of a hatch in the floor that you open by pulling the rope.”
She pointed out the hatch on the white wooden floor, which she pulled up with a rope handle to reveal a long ladder underneath.
TheThe shot showed a brass ship’s clock hanging on the wall, followed by a large anchor stationed in the driveway in front of the house.
Kallie said, “We have a lot of ship decor, like the anchor at the end of my driveway.”
The influencer then filmed the front deck of the former boat, which Kallie said overlooked “the upper deck and the captain’s room.” We have many decks.
She demonstrated the “steering wheel” of the ship, known as the rudder or ship’s wheel.
The steering wheel is located in the captain’s former quarters, which is now Kallie’s parents’ bedroom.
The video ended with a wide shot of the entire house.
The former boatwere clearly visible, including the shape of the hull, supported by what looked like a basement built underneath.
The influencer said that it was “very cool” to grow up in such an unusual place and that she “played a lot of pirates and Noah’s Ark” during her childhood.
Kallie revealed the home’s origins in a comment after someone asked how the boat came to shore.
She said: “After the Second World War it was decommissioned and in the 1960s a couple bought it to convert it into a house.”
TikTokers loved Kallie’s video tour and many expressed their support.
One wrote: “This is the coolest house ever, I wish I could live there!”
Another person said: “Imagine running around here with your kids, pretending to be pirates and then having a snack on the terrace.”
