Tiny Floating Home is a Whimsical House Boat

Houseboat Tiny Houses

Tiny floating home is a whimsical house boat in Seattle so happy and bright it leaves you smiling and wanting more.  It’s resting in the waters of Eastlake, Seattle, WA and hard to resist.  I am excited to show you this delightful tiny home referred to me by Sarah on House Crazy who knows how much I love floating homes and houseboats.

The tiny floating home measures in at 790 square feet.  For outside living, the house boat has a small porch and sitting area in the front, and a nice little upper deck with table and chairs.  The roof-top can handle some chairs to watch the boat traffic go by and enjoy sunsets.  As I gaze at the front it looks like teeny tiny steps leading to the roof from the upper deck or is it just my imagination?

All the other rooms in this tiny floating home with a colorful artistic touch look like they have space to spare.  It is such a joyful, happy, place to live.

Estately listing for this 740 square foot floating home is $450,000.  Built in 1997 with one bedroom and 3/4 baths.  As of this date, with only being on the market for a short time, somebody keeled over for this quaint float as it is now pending.

Seattle WA tenas chuck communityThe neighborhood where this fun home sits is the historic Tenas Chuck community where the mailboxes seen below are as “unique as the houseboat it belongs to.”

Tenas Chuck community MailboxesI love the fanciful mailboxes and wonder which box belongs to this house.  Goodness gracious I want to paint my mailbox now.  I like the daisy, the green and white striped, and turquoise cloud with the red X.  The houseboat and mailboxes make me want to know this place and the people who live here.

Hope this lively place brightened your day.

Thank again to Sarah for finding this tiny goldmine floating home.
