Life on the Water


Houseboats in Amsterdam ... you see them in all shapes, sizes, and styles. An interesting way to live, to say the least.

It is interesting. The picture is very nice too. I like the idea of sod on the roof. That is great. Does the local governments get to charge them any kind of annual taxes for their living in the houseboats?

Looks like the Prinsengracht! Very nice.

You will, of course, have to tell what the grass on the top of the boat on the left is all about.

What a beautiful photo. I understand that houseboats are not cheap, so what makes people prefer them to an apartment/house?

I didn't see houseboats with eco roofs when I visited a couple of years ago. Interesting!
