High-Style Houseboats

There's something that seems a little renegade-ish about living on a houseboat. No property taxes, a lawn of water, and a tiny living space aren't typical selling points for a home, but living on the water definitely has a romantic and economic appeal.An average houseboat looks sort of like a floating RV, but several companies and people have proven that houseboats needn't lack style and personality.

If you like the modern look, prefab company MetroShip makes a simple and beautiful houseboat yacht. Or, if you prefer a more custom look, check out this floating house tour and its stylish flea market decor.

For plant lovers, this tour is an inspiring example of a floating garden. And last, but not least, this Copenhagen boat is surprisingly spacious. For a deeper look into each space, click through the links below.
