Tutorial to make houseboat - for school projects

The school projects for our kids are really fun to the crafty moms, but it gives lots of stress also sometimes. Normally in schools ask for making either working models or demo models . When my son was in lower classes I used to make the models for exhibition in his schools.Once I had made model depicting deforestation and  model of  houses. Now he is grown up doesn't need my help  :).

I get many emails regarding school projects, inquiring how to make models. Thought in in some of posts if I write about the tutorial to make some school projects and models, it may be helpful to some moms of school going kids.
In this post sharing about steps to make model of house-boat. As this is quite a long procedure, I will be sharing it in two consecutive posts.
