The Floating Home is resting in a temporary location in Port Townsend’s Point Hudson Marina. You can follow the story of the launch through the stories that appeared in the Peninsula Daily news and Port Townsend Leader. Anticipation built as we prepared to launch. The process halted overnight and resumed the next afternoon. It arrived at Point Hudson early in the morning of February 9th. Click one of the links to read the article and browse the Lake Union Floating Home page to see a photographic timeline of the construction including new photos.
The home will remain at Point Hudson for approximately another week as some interior work is completed including painting and built in furniture. Once the work is complete, and the weather cooperates, the home will be transported to Lake Union in Seattle. Once on site utilities will be connected and the home will be balanced.
Jeff Chew from the Peninsula Daily News produced this video about the launch of the home.

Alex Little was featured in the 2010 Home Improvement insert in the Port Townsend Leader. The Article It’s Not Easy Going ‘Green’ is a good introduction to sustainable building practices, but the concept to take away is not about green, it is about good choices. Alex explains that a well thought out home and a green home are essentially the same thing. Those building or remodeling a home should consider the costs over the life of the home, not just the initial upgrade cost.

We recently had a visitor to our office in Port Townsend. Nicholas Johnson, reporter and photographer for the Port Townsend Leader, sat with us for an hour to discuss business. The Port Townsend Leader is going to do stories on local businesses and we were featured in the paper on October 26, 2011. Nicholas asked many questions about the boom and bust that we have experienced the past few years. We also discussed the floating home that we are building in the Port of Port Townsend Shipyard. Nicholas showed a genuine interest in Little & Little Construction and the Port Townsend and East Jefferson County Communities. You can read his story Down, But Not Out here.
