It’s been almost three decades since Johan Huibers was struck by the inspiration to build an arch. The Dutchman was reading «Noah’s Ark» to his children as a story to fall asleep when he suddenly had the idea to create his own.

After telling his wife about his idea, she didn’t quite agree with his plan. Instead, she made a joke by saying that their family would «go on vacation to the moon» if he crossed it and finished it.

Despite his joke, Huibers continued his plan and, according to Bored Panda, his first version of the ark was built in 2006.

As Euro News reported, part of the reason Huibers thought so long about building the arch is because of a nightmare he had about the major floods that were happening in the Netherlands.

According to Huibers, at the age of 24, he began to dream of these floods. It was then that he chose to embark on a project to build his own arch.

He began with the building patterns according to what is in the Old Testament. But his first version was «only half that of the Bible,» so he decided to go back to the drawing board.
