photoblog image floating house at Jantzen Beach, Oregon

floating house at Jantzen Beach, Oregon

There are a string of floating houses and condos on the Columbia river at Jantzen Beach in Oregon.  As you can see, the Sheriff offers his services to  these very expensive homes.  (Although, some of them do not look very expensive, as you will see in forthcoming days.)

Kay: Isn't it interesting? Very strange to see a two story house floating in the river, isn't it?

You sit in the bath in one of these houses, just make sure you are pulling the right plug smile

Looks a very nice way to live. Great shot and composition.
Kay: Hi Louis, Very good point grin. If there wasn't a chance of a flood, I'd do this too, but as it is those kind of things have been happening lately. Thank you for comments, as always smile

funny that when you are not accustomed to scenes like this that they look strange! Well, what ever floats your boat! lol, I like the shot though. mal
Kay: Hi Mal,
I thought this looked a little strange too! smile I've never seen a two story house floating in the river before.
Thanks for your comments, always appreciated!

A house on a raft! Interesting place to be, like the boats as well.
Kay: Thank you very much, Les smile

Cool! Although I'd always be afraid of flooding smile
Kay: Hi Deb, I'm with you on that one.
Thanks for your comment smile

Interesting...look forward to seeing more. I like this shot Kay.
Kay: Hi Bridge, thank you! I have a couple more to post. smile Hope you will like them.
Interesting design and idea. I don't mind having such a house to stay.
Kay: It's probably one of the biggest floating houses in this area, Helen. I wonder if it was moved from land...it looks like it was. smile
Looks like a dolls house love it
Kay: Tracy, that's exactly what I thought when I saw this house. It was a little surreal. smile Thanks for commenting smile

I started thinking about all the houseboats on the canals of Amsterdam, Kay. If this house could fit on one of them (only on the Amstel River, I guess), it sure would turn a lot of heads! How fun. I think living on a houseboat would feel pretty cool, though I'm sure they have their issues to deal with.
Kay: Hi Ginnie, it may be fun for a while to live in a house like this one. But I'd miss having a garden and trees around me so it may not last. smile
I'd love to live here !! Like beeing on an island !! Oh, to be Robinson Crusoe....
Kay: Imagine floating down the river in your own house! Aha. However these houses are tethered to poles. They can't go anywhere. smile Thanks for your comment, Florence.
Wow, now there is a home with a difference. Looking forward to the next in the series! (:o)
Kay: Hi Rosalyn, I hope you like them. Posting a couple more...
Thank you for your comment smile
Dear Kay. this is a lovely capture. Once again you have cheered me up. I feel like going aboard
Kay: So glad to lift your spirits, Busola! smile Thank you!
I wonder at the scale of the houses relative to the grassy river bank. The river bank doesn't look like that high, but the height is almost at par with the house, thereby making the house look like a model as opposed to a real house. Wonderful.
Kay: Thank you so much wink
Very interresting ! This house seems as a toy !
Kay: I think so too, Zeb! Thanks!
