Houseboat Living

With the imminent 100 degree temps soon to hit Phoenix, I'm already dreaming of packing it up and heading to the water this summer. Perhaps a 1000 square foot prefab houseboat in California's Richardson Bay would do the trick...

Imagine waking up to the sound of waves every morning and checking outside the living room window for sharks and jelly fish. Falling asleep to the sound of seals and taking the ol' kayak out to run errands. I wonder if there's a Target nearby...not that the kayak could hold all of my loot.

Rooftop patio...very swanky & social.

Just think of the workout you'd get everyday just by leaving the house! I'm not sure I could live in a houseboat full time, but it would certainly be fun to rent one for a week or two. Could you do it?

  1. This is one of the coolest things i've seen in a long time. My family and I have a boat but it is a bit cramped when 5 of us try to sleep/live on it. I would really like having a large house boat to live on for the summer!

  2. thank you so much for the reminder of the houseboats dotted around the bays of san francisco. i am an aussie girl who was fortunate enough to spend four years living in this incredible part of the world and forgot all about the house boat communities. just beautiful.
