…Houseboating just isn’t what it used to be?

Houseboat

This really gives new meaning to the term “houseboating”. This 220-ton home was moved via barge across Florida’s Tamp Bay after the land it sat on since 1910 was purchased for a waterfront revitalization plan. It took George Corbett, the owner of the Queen Anne-style home over a year to work out the details on how to move his house the 25 miles to its new location, and I can only hope that his hard work paid off. Sadly, part of me does wish we could have seen a YouTube video of this thing sinking to the depths of the bay, but only because I love the thought of ironic humor like a sinking “houseboat”.
