Moving might feel like a wasteful activity, materially speaking.

Options and costs of moving to a houseboat or a floating home or in B.C.

In the past, we wrote about preparing to move into a boat or yacht. But did you know that there is another way to live life on the water? And it’s not with ‘real’ boats! Floating homes and houseboats are an option if you like the serenity of the sea, but don’t want the small-space living that comes with moving to a boat. Though, there are things to know about moving into a floating home or houseboat in B.C. We’ll cover those in this article. Know the difference between your floating home or houseboat options, before you move to one Here’s a fun fact: floating homes are not the same as houseboats. They are also not the same as a house barge. As a rule of thumb, when you hear the word “boat” think: motors. Otherwise, expect that the living structure won’t have it’s own way of ‘driving’ to a new marina – at least not without a tugboat or some sort of ‘pull.’ Also, when you’re talking ‘house’ or ‘home’ there may be legalities involved, as you would likely be anchored to something, keeping you in place, and succumbing you to local laws. This can affect construction and habitation rules with your city. If you don’t like those rules, you will need to do research into acceptable construction for your home-on-the-water (that could be a house barge). This is a little bit like owning a tiny home in Vancouver. The mobility of your structure can determine what laws will apply to it. In B.C., there are specific guidelines on the standards that float homes must meet. Here is...
