For those not familiar with the option of a house barge, it is not a houseboat. It has no motor or hull and cannot move itself. It is just like a regular house, only stronger and with full integrity (meaning water tight) but instead of a basement or foundation, it sits atop a hollow barge keeping it afloat on the water. It can be towed by a boat or can be removed from the water and set on the ground with the right machinery. These houses have many bonuses you do not get with regular property. They are durable to heavier weather. Owners do not pay property taxes, and always get more house for their money because they are not buying any land. With a barge there is less work than a boat. Unless moved frequently, the bottom does not need to be cleaned. Day to day living and interaction with your home is the same as on land. The actual motion is minimal and balance isn't an issue in a common storm. This house, in particular, adapted perfectly and life within was unaffected during the harsh storm that came off of a recent hurricane.
If you love the sounds of the dock, this could be the perfect fit with no need to sacrifice on comfort or space!
