Description: People seem inexorably drawn to live near water, but rising prices for waterfront land have made that an impossible dream for most. There is an alternative, though. Water-loving people of modest means have lived aboard houseboats for centuries, and why not? Unlike expensive, cramped, and hard-to-build liveaboard cruising boats, spacious, homey houseboats are easily and economically constructed from commmon lumberyard materials. And unlike those high-priced waterfront cottages, there's no lawn to mow and often no property taxes. And if you don't like the new neighbors, just up anchor and be off. This book tells those who would live afloat how to design and build their own place on the water. There are detailed plans and building instructions for sample houseboats; help with designing a personalized houseboat from scratch; resource-stingy contrivances for easing life afloat, including a solar oven, a windmill-powered washing machine, and innovative power, water, and waste-management systems, and more.
