Houseboating/Floating Home tour/video (The Lake Union Community)

I came across this rather well done video online the other day (from author Howard Droker), and was somewhat surprised to find that it had so few views for being up so long. I guess the overall houseboating, shantyboating, and floating home scene still is very underground in the overall scheme of worldly things- perhaps, its best if kept that way (so, maybe I SHOULDNT post this video.....). Sadly, there are so few good books on the subject- or at least one's I've come across. Naturally, if you have any houseboat, tiny floating home, or shantyboat book recommendations, comment away....

Anyway, check it out...

  1. This is a fantastic video Deek, one of my dreams for my own small house living experiences.

  2. what's really cool is renting a kayak and paddling around and through the avenues of houseboats. you can get really close and look at the structures they sit on- some are in bad disrepair but will be right next to brand new expensive structures. Seattle is so badass that way ;)
