I spent quite a bit of time in and around Seattle's Lake Union. If you aren't familiar with the area, it's full of house boats, one of the biggest communities of the dwellings in the entire world. From the outside, the houses are adorable--many come with wrap-around wood porches complete with potted plants, others have kayaks docked to what are essentially their front yards. I always had a pipe dream of owning a house boat someday, but had dreams of the 1958 Sophia Loren movie, Houseboat, with its leaky ceilings and sprawling unseemliness. Worst of all, I thought that trendy houseboats must cost more money than a house.
Are they are a financial reality?
