There are about 12 of these in False Creek moored to Granville Island docks.
They reflect the spirit of their owners. The majority of people who gravitate to float home living are curious, adventurous and free spirited individuals who can think and live outside the box. The history of floating homes is a colourful history of people, a hard working yet relaxed group who share a desire to live life to its fullest, a respect for Mother Nature and a passion for the water. Living afloat is a new option of having it all, a form of modest cost living in urban environments. Today, living aboard a float home is a clear lifestyle choice made by people in all walks of life
