Intimate, hand-crafted two story floating home. Workmanship and custom-built features partially describe this home! The first floor consists of entryway, master bedroom, master bathroom, and stackable washer and dryer. As you walk up the full-sized staircase to the upper level, you will come to the main part of the home, a stunning open area! This spacious, open space allows for easy entertaining, accommodating an overnight guest, half bath and highly functional kitchen.
This upper level has custom made ridge skylights and 14 windows. Strategically placed, these windows maximize light and views, while retaining privacy. The ceiling is a timber frame work of art, using very sophisticated joinery work. The main cross beams are reclaimed Douglas fir salvaged from an old warehouse in Oakland. Timber frame joists were used to create the trusses that open to the ridge skylights.
The kitchen, with its high-end appliances, features a countertop made from solid 2P thick planks of rare African Padauk hardwood.
This upper level has a charming deck that overlooks the interior of the marina. The deck offers privacy as well as view. Great for an evening of relaxation while enjoying the peacefulness of living on the water.
The flooring in both bathrooms is teak and holly vinyl that is used in marine application on yachts. The floors in the rest of the home are engineered Koa wood. Most of the walls are bead board to give the home a cottage feel.
The floating home is uniquely stabilized with 8 large, custom-ordered, air-filled adjustable tanks, secured to the home by rough sawn redwood decking, providing stability and aesthetic value.
In summary, this home could be considered contemporary 'organic' as it sports Natural Wood finishes, organic colors, and reclaimed materials.
