Houseboat Neighborhood, Lake Union, Seattle. I like the boat parked in between the houses. Photograph by Natasha Lewandrowski.

I never saw a houseboat in person before living in Seattle. I always imagined them as small nomadic buildings, poled along canals in distant foreign cities or rafting between tropical islands. These ones look like cabins or even full-scale houses set on flotation devices. They are cute, but they don’t look very portable. I have never seen one out for a spin. I looked into renting one once, but it wasn’t any cheaper than a land-bound apartment.
