Float Homes

This post was created months ago but at the time I figured I'd just about worn out the tour of Granville Island. But without the luxury of oodles of images to choose from I'm using it now.


I don't know much about float homes. There are a few different communities around Metro Vancouver. I do feel comfortable in speculating that it isn't cheap to live at this one at Granville Island.

It's quite a nice looking place. It looks like it was designed by an architect.

A great shot of these most appealing homes. The idea is quite romantic, but I'm not sure it's for everyone.
