I spotted this little Float Home while sailing up the Fraser River near Ladner, British Columbia last year.
It looks like a Hansel and Gretyl House with the weathered shingle siding and little turretted room. It has to be the home of an excentric, hippie, artist type, don't you think?
We were staying at the house right behind this one. In this Floating community you see cats sitting on the docks with ducks, and sea lions come right up to your house. The houses are all staggered to allow the best views, and so you can keep your boat moored next to your house in your "driveway". These houses go up and down 16' with the tide. Trying to navigate your boat in and out of your parking spot, meant 1 man driving and 2 people with poles making sure you don't smack your 18 footer into your neighbors living room.
