10 Fantastic Floating Homes

If living on land leaves you feeling high and dry, a floating home might be for you. They come in all shapes and sizes, from stationary dwellings to motorized or sailing houseboats.

Floating homes are growing in popularity internationally as the global climate changes, since they can withstand fluctuating water levels and even flooding. And, while live-aboard boats were once the arks for off-the-grid squatters on unregulated shores, they are now part of highly regulated communities all over the world, and many have all the luxury comforts to which land-lubbers are accustomed.

Make some waves (some of these homes do rock gently) or a splash. Most of these homes are built to be unsinkable, and one might even float your boat.

This floating home in Seattle is one of a growing number around the world. While many remain affordable -- down to $59,000 in Norris Lake, Tenn. -- there are luxury models as well, such as this one for $3.5 million.

Seattle has a large floating-home community around the east and west sides of Lake Union dating back to 1905. Near where Tom Hanks' Sleepless in Seattle home was moored on Lake Union is this restored 1978 vintage floating home on Westlake Avenue in the heart of the artsy Fremont district. It is listed for $850,000.

The open living room and dining room look out to a viewing deck, which has windows and beautiful woodwork all around. Two bedrooms have been converted into a single oversized master suite.

The chef's kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite counters, new appliances and a breakfast bar.
