Third floating home arrives at Wards Cove

A third floating home arrived at the Wards Cove dock on Fairview Avenue E. on Friday, July 22. 

The 2,000-square-foot home was built on the Ship Canal and towed from Fremont to join two other houseboats being built on the dock. Owners are Art and Eva Wahl who told KOMO that they sold their home on the land in order to have the adventure of living on a houseboat.


The Wards Cove development is touted as having the last new houseboat slips to be offered on Lake Union. It is located where the Wards Cove Packing Company previously had docks and storage buildings for its Alaska fishing fleet.

According to Joel Blair of Wards Cove, five of the 12 slips on the dock have been sold. According to KOMO, prices for the slips range from $600,000 to $920,000.

    saw the new floating home earlier this week. it looks good.

    one of the things i really like about these new floating homes is that each one has its own distinct style and personality.

    each one is a little architectural gem.

    Sleepless in Seattle, houseboats or floating homes makes it a unique place to live on the lake. What a great experience and style for those who love the water.

    recently view these new additions, looks good on Lake Union.

    Amazing sail boats weekly on the lake as well, what great views for the houseboats. Seattle options for housing.
