Seattle Houseboat -- a Floating Home Renovation

A new acacia wood floor is beautiful. All interior walls are finished with cedar and vertical grain fir details. The homeowner reads and works at home frequently, so this desk space is much used.

The countertop is a particular type of natural stone known as a "schist" stone. Some folks say this stone is hard like granite, with the softer feel of a soapstone. The name of this stone is "pietra del cardosa." Thank you for asking.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A houseboat, with its compact dimensions, is a fantastic place to enjoy a bonsai. Its placement on the breakfast table gives this wood-paneled wall all the interest it needs, while defining a spot that might otherwise be lost in a sea of wood.
