SeattleAfloat: Floating Homes, Houseboats, More

SeattleAfloat: Floating homes, Houseboats, More:  You can all the latest Seattle houseboats for sale on the corporate real estate site.

Here is a great peek at the North Part of Westlake on the base of Queen Anne (Northlake).  This is West across form Eastlake and South of Wallingford right by the Aurora Bridge and near Fremont.

Westlake floating homes: Westlake has some wonderful shops along the Lake Union (Cheshihud) Loop.  You can also catch a glimpse into some of the cute treatments certain floating homes get from their owners.

This floating back deck for instance is in the moorage where you might usually find a boat, but the savvy owners have decided that adding outdoor space might better serve their life afloat.

(I love little Seattle houseboat details like this)

What kind of details do you have that are unique for your life afloat in Seattle?

Seattle Afloat: It is great seeing all the differences in each floating home: Little peep holes to see if the store is open or liquor hatches in the floats left over from prohibition.  Tiny cubbies fitted with hinges in the stair case to make use of any dead spaces for storage.
