A Tiny, but Full Home on the Water

January 2017 Feature Colin Peterson Web Exclusive

If you've ever dreamed of being able to leave the asphalt, sidewalks, and lawns behind, check out this houseboat docked near Queens, N.Y.! It's basically a legitimate, all-inclusive house on the water! Built in 2007, it's a 400-square-foot FloLodge (an insulated all-season houseboat) that's now on the market for $59,000, a recent $9,000 decrease. That's very little compared to buying a full apartment in New York City, but of course, an apartment doesn't come with the added challenges of houseboat living (such as weatherproofing or the risk of capsizing).

The wooden finish makes this contraption look more like a customized tiny house than a boat. It has a huge deck and lots of living space; it consists of one bedroom, one bathroom, a den, and a stylish kitchen. The wooden interior gives the houseboat a rural-like appeal. The houseboat is currently docked at Marina 59, but if you want to dock it anywhere other than Queens, there are plenty of other marinas around the city of New York.
