MetroShip – The Original Modern Houseboat.

I got an email today from David Ballinger of MetroShip asking me to check out his gorgeously-designed houseboat. Wow. I now have a new dreamhouse.

I wanted it to be like an updated Frank Lloyd Wright home but with an open New York Loft condo style mixed with a mid century Eichler home post and beam style. Using structurally sound lightweight aluminum panels was important. Using a single piece roof was important. Using the very best doors and windows available was important. Design, as they say, is in the details.

Thank you, David!
