I dreamed of living in a houseboat on Lake Powell, AZ at one point and thought I’d throw this out as an interesting housing option even though Lake Powell probably isn’t the most practical place to live because of its remote, desert location. Check out the links below for other alternatives. You may be able to buy a used houseboat at a good price due to the recession. You could rent a houseboat first to see if you like the lifestyle. Lots more houseboat videos at YouTube.
