While in Portland for the Pro Tour stop I saw these luxury floating houses on the Columbia River. Pretty cool to just be able to drive your boat right into the garage!

I'm so jealous, i bet there are grocery and liqour stores right on the water too right?

I wonder is the big wakes cause damage to these homes?

I would love to have one though! Just about 2 feet higher off the water.

No thanks. My boat isn't really set up to hold the garage door opener (no sun visor :-).

Are they really floating or are they on big pillars? I can't imagine what it would take to get that much weight to float! Those are pretty crazy looking!

I love it because mowing the grass is a snap, leaves more time for wakeboarding!

Yeah... but you have to live in Portland.

They actually are floating. They are fastened to tall posts they can move up and down on. The rivers here can vary more than 30 ft in water level in a relativly normal year.
Though our wakeboarding season is too short, Portland is otherwise a great place to live.
