The idea of floating houses is not new, however it stays popular and has again come renewed by a designer Tom Pearce.

I forgot to mention that the Lake is Lake Union, and it is completely surrounded by the city of Seattle.
His floating home concept Crescasa Houseboat is actually a small residence with two bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom.

That said, the real floating homes of this city constitute a unique, vast and variegated water-based subculture well worth exploring.
The image above is a kind of a picture-perfect extreme – a large, two-story, traditional-looking home that has elements of a southern plantation house or rural mansion. I should imagine bad weather is no fun, but the idea of living in this way is so beautiful – I wish I could do it her in Cornwall, UK. Among the goodies of this housing is an extensible rear platform to be used as a solid open space for work, recreation of eco-friendly gardening. From the interior photos one would never know that this home floats.At the other mobility extreme are truly-portable houseboats that not only float in place but can be taken out on trips or moved easily from dock to dock.

Waste can be turned into biofuel and used to run the engine and provide electricity to the boat-house.
Some of these are converted boats or barges while others were built from the ground (or: water) up to be real mobile homes-on-the-water. While none of these residences are cheap to own, some are for rent to those who want to take some time off from land living and experience the curious combination of turbulence and isolation a boat home affords.
