Fans of Chip and Joanna Gaines and the HGTV show Fixer Upper will tell you they've heard a lot about shiplap. Perhaps too much. But here's one spin on the shiplap fad that brings things full circle. A shiplap-walled home that's actually a ship.
Okay, not a ship, per se. But it's a floating home, so, close enough. The two-bedroom, 1,100 square-foot floater in Eastlake just listed for $925K (plus $398/month in HOA dues) and you have to see what they've done with the place.
Originally built in 1925, this home is located within the coveted Flo Villa CoOp and offers some great views of the skyline and surrounding Seattle area from it's rooftop deck. The interior can best be described as warm and comfortable. The living room looks like any quality land-locked living room you'd see out there and it's sizable so no worries about squeezing everyone aboard.
The kitchen is straight out of an urban farmhouse thanks to the abundant space, wood built-ins, gas range, and the aforementioned shiplap ceiling. That motif continues into the adjoining spaces where shiplap lines the walls, including the sleeping nook (with sliding doors and a window into the kitchen), office cove, and right on into the main bedroom.
There's a skinny deck that opens out from the living room and wraps around the home. The aforementioned rooftop deck is where you'll be hosting your dinner parties. Altogether, it's simple luxury on Lake Union with shiplap. All your bases are covered.
