It's possible to live very comfortably on the water. In the Netherlands you have lovely canalboat houses such as this one. Living above water level and sleeping below water level gives you all the space you need. And when executed this well you end up with an amazing living space, loads of light, ducks swimming by and a constant feeling of holiday.
This boat can be found on the river Amstel and is photographed by Margriet Hoekstra.
