Lake Union Float Home. Sunset view from the water.
Floating boat house on Lake Union, in Seattle.
How about a house on the lake?
One of the big challenges of building a floating house is the size constraints. The home is limited by the size of the float and a height restriction, in this case 22 feet. These constraints, along with the industrial history, inspired a boxy design. "It's a storage crate aesthetic," describes Nelson
Nelson. The homeowner calls this place "The Floating Cannery."The owners are also able to pull their Cobalt boat right up to the house, making it easy to hop in and head for the San Juan Islands.

The exterior has a tough industrial look as well, mixing structural steel, Cor-Ten steel panels and glass. Salvaged cedar accents hint at the warmth inside and remind us why this whole house floats in the first place —

Stunning house boat open to Lake Union
Floating boat house on Lake Union, in Seattle.
The idea that the house feels like it is floating on the water, a direct path into the water. The garage door feature is also fun.
The owners of this floating house on Lake Union in Seattle tend to kayak instead of swim up to their home, but these large glass garage doors make it possible to dive from the living
