San Francisco Houseboat

Anchored in a small canal on Mission Creek in San Francisco, California, lays this beautiful modern contemporary floating home designed by Robert Nebolon Architects. Envisioned by a pair of adventurous first-time homeowners, the 2,100-square-foot floating house was built in a Sausalito boatyard, and then towed across the San Francisco Bay safely to its slip on San Francisco’s Mission Creek where it now proudly resides. Everything has a contemporary touch, starting with the open space living room, soaring windows and natural color palette, the bright kitchen design and finishing with a stunning dining area. The owners say "This is the coolest place to live in San Francisco, you’re practically in the center of the city, but you’re on the water with the seals, fish and birds.” Watch the video below to learn more about the process.
