Floating Home IV
A boatyard serves as the backyard for this community of nine boat houses in Horning, Norfolk,
England. LSI Architects used metal cladding and cedar shingles on the exteriors to mirror the
site's industrial heritage. Living spaces sit on the upper level to capture the surrounding views.
Each home has its own mooring—all aboard!
Yellowknife Floating Home
If you’re not sure your sea legs could stand up to life on the water, a vacation at the
Yellowknife Floating Home in Canada might help you decide. An exercise in living off the grid,
this boathouse boasts a solar generator–powered battery bank that limits the use of electricity
on board. The house sits like an island in Great Slave Lake; guests are ferried between the
mainland and the home by boat.
