Program: Create a 2 story cottage with a nautical theme This floating home is located on the east side of Lake Union, directly across from the 'Sleepless in Seattle' movie floating home.

Design: This is a true floating home that rests on it's original 5’ diameter cedar log floats. The 2 story entry features a ‘crow’s nest/lookout’ with views of downtown seattle. This is a great spare bedroom! The interior ship’s ladder leads to a large rooftop deck with 360’ views. The exposed wood beams in the entry align with a pair of french doors that open onto a wrap around deck and boat parking. This 800 s.f. home has 2 bedrooms, 2 sleeping lofts, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen and living room.

This home has a metal roof, and a combination of hardi shingles and lap siding that will stand up the elements. Windows were carefully positioned to maintain privacy but maximize natural light and cross ventilation.
