This eclectic float home on Seattle’s Lake Union has been dubbed the Hobbit Houseboat. No, it’s not covered in earth and there isn’t a single circular door or window to be seen. But I suppose if hobbits overcame their fear of water and decided that other window shapes were acceptable, then possibly they would build something like this.
The cedar-clad home has a whimsical appearance with multiple different roof forms giving the impression that it was built without a plan or added on to at various times. Entering the float home from the dockside entrance, you pass between a small bedroom on the left and the bathroom on the right. The bathroom features a stone floor and a bathtub carved from a 200-year-old cedar log.
