We propose in this paper BlockHouse, a decentralized/P2P storage system fully based on private blockchains. Each participant can rent his unused storage in order to host data of other members. This system uses a dual Smart Contract and Proof of Retrievability system to automatically check at a fixed frequency if the file is still hosted. In addition to transparency, the blockchain allows a better integration with all payments associated to this type of system (regular payments, sequestration to ensure good behaviors of users, ...). Except the data transferred between the client and the server, all the actions go through a smart contract in the blockchain in order to log, pay and secure the entire storage process.
