Have you ever considered living right on the water? This piece will describe some of the benefits and features, as well as the hazards involved in doing it.
Houseboats are water craft, where you could unleash from the dock and move. Floating homes do just that. They’re built on the water, and have permanent attachments so they can’t be moved.
Check this piece out to see this type of living. It may provide you with ideas for some future adventure!
- Floating homes and Houseboats are not the same thing. Floating homes are permanently connected to one place, while house boats are mobile.
- Taxes on a floating home are the same as buying any property. Houseboats require sales tax.
- For home inspections, a diver is required to dive beneath a home or house boat.
“Floating homes must meet standard building codes; houseboats have a little more leeway with unusual staircases or door and window sizing.”
