Fennell Ultimate House Boat Video Link

Great video from the Ultimate House program, an interview with the architect and homeowners that includes walk-throughs of this organic house boat. Waking up to a dramatic view, whether from the banks of a lake, ocean, river, or even a tiny brook, always seems to have a soothing effect on the soul. One way to amp up the romance is to take the dwelling off the shore and put it right onto the water, as Portland, Oregon-based architect Robert Oshatz did for his clients. The professional couple, who spend most of their time in downtown Portland, had purchased a mooring on the east side of the Willamette River, an active commercial and recreational body of water. They turned to Oshatz, known for his curvaceous, swooping architecture, to create a floating house as their weekend and summer retreat.
