    Beautiful….yes! But, upon seeing this and thinking of the potential buyer, I am reminded of Eli Wallach’s comment in the Magnificent Seven, to wit: “if God did not intend for them to be sheared, He would not have made them sheep”.

    I wonder can it be moved? what are the fees for docking it where it is? How much snow do they get in this area? etc.

      Yes, house boats can be moved… They don’t have motors but the floating platform they are on can be towed by another boat, preferably something like a tug boat…

      Though, they are not designed to be moved often or through rough waters. Just slow and steady from one port to the next.

      Typically, the builders will build one at or near their facility and then have it towed to the owner’s dock, where it gets anchored and attached to utilities.

      Dock and slip fees vary per area, but they basically carry over from what they charge for boats, which are generally based on the length of your boat/house, multiplied by a fixed fee for full service dockage (ex: water, electricity), or a reduced fixed fee for limited or minimal dock services (ex: no water, no electricity).

      These fees can range from $1,000-10,000 a year depending on the marina location, available marina services, and the overall vessel length or house dimensions.

      Some marinas will include other services in their “dock fees” like haul-outs, winter storage, or regular maintenance items.

      While available dock and slip sizes will vary per marinas and some impose a height restriction as well… So depending on the size of the house boat it may limit where you can take it…

      No chinking, weathering, etc. So looks more like a plastic log exterior…

        Oops, ignore that last sentence…

  • Tom Osterdock February 14, 2018, 10:01 pm

    James I would not take it anywhere. It does not have wheels.

    • James D. February 15, 2018, 5:51 pm

      Reminds me of that movie quote…

      “Roads? Where we’re going, we won’t need roads.”

      -Doc Brown from the movie Back to the Future ;-p

      Though, there are people thinking of building a house into an Airship for go anywhere in the world type home…

        Oh Ok take it to Lake Tahoe for me.
