Details

The floating home offers a large great room, an instant hot water system, a commercial stove, many appliances, some furniture & an inverter & battery pack. It does not come with a generator. The home was once staff quarters for a lodge. There is a formal front door as well as a practical back door that opens into a mudroom/ laundry room. Out back is a shed with a fish cleaning station & storage. The bedrooms are all a similar size with a small bathroom in each. Each bathroom has a shower & a toilet, with a sink in an alcove outside the bathroom. Two bedrooms open to the deck outside the house, while one bedroom opens inside the house. One room can be changed to also open to the inside of the house if desired.

Condition

The home presents nicely but is older and needs some upgrades. Float house living is fun, delightful & a quintessential part of historical Alaskan living, especially in regards to the once mobile logging camps. Today some float houses remain but many have been moved up onto land as the floats do require more floatation & upkeep as time goes on. If you have some practical skills and are looking for a great new way of life, then this could be it!

    House is in good shape, but float is not?
    The condition of the house is only as good as the foundation it sits on.

  • George Bahr

    It seems to me, wherever you park this in some lake in Alaska, the float is going to freeze in place and get damaged each year.
    If its used in an extreme environment like Alaska, it would seem like it would need to be drydocked each winter?
    Is there something I’m missing here?

    The float house is in southeast ak. The waterways don’t freeze over, unless it’s a small waterway that doesn’t get any sun and is very calm.
