Welcome to the Floating Homes Association
We are an Association of people who live on or own floating homes in Seattle, Washington, USA.
A floating home is a house on a raft semi-permanently moored to a dock. It is always attached to city utilities, including the sewer. These features, and a slug of government regulations, distinguish floating homes from live-aboards and other kinds of boats.
History has squeezed our range down to just Portage Bay and Lake Union within the boundaries of Seattle. There are about 500 legal floating home moorages left from a high of several thousand after World War II.
We've mounted this web site to give the world a peek at us and to help us talk among ourselves.
