Floating Homes

Thanks to all of you who left such kind words on my last blog.  I'm so happy you enjoyed seeing the pictures of the floating homes tour.  Today I'll show pictures of a few of the homes. On yesterday's comments, Judy mentioned the film "Sleepless in Seattle." The floating home in that film was on tour a few years back and we got to tour it. I think it sold for a million plus dollars.  The SBA and I think this might be a great place to go when we are too old for yard work!!

 We saw this house the first year we went on the tour.  It is still my favorite.  It was full of fine quality country antiques, quilts and Shaker things, not what you would expect on a floating home.

 These old logs are floating and supporting most of the older homes.

A lovely master suite!
I'll be back to cross stitch in my next post! Let's all take a bit of time today to remember.


  1. I could so easily live in that teal blue one with the white railing and pots plants! Oh, I can just smell the water of Puget Sound now!

  2. Oh, what a great bunch of homes, Barb! I love the blue one in your third photo... Is there ever a flooding problem with them?

  3. i wonder what it is like to stand on second floor of your house while its bobing up and down - applying eyeliner would be a bit of a problem would'nt it?

  4. Thanks for showing these wonderful houses. I love the blue one with the two balconys.
    Here in Germany we don't have houseboats.
    Have a great stitching day!
    Hugs from Germany

  5. What a neat tour.
    There's all kinds from country to modern.
    A very interesting way to live!
    Thanks for the pics.

  6. I really enjoyed seeing these!
    Thanks Barb!

  7. i would love to live in one of these. i wonder why we don't have these here?

  8. I could totally see myself living in one of these floating houses
    Thanks for sharing

  9. Wow! All those homes are pretty awesome. I always thought it would be cool to live on a floating home. What a cool tour :) Thanks for sharing

  10. So many varieties of home styles! Very cool!

  11. Wouldn't that be fun to live in one of those. I always loved the one in Sleepless in Seattle. Never thought they could be so exotic.
    Thanks for the pictures.

  12. Barb,

    I certainly enjoyed your "houseboat tour"! How much fun!
