This boat house makes me want to move to Norway and buy a ship. Or maybe forget the boat and just move in.
As Remodelista points out, it's both rustic and futuristic at once—the perfect aesthetic combination in my opinion. Norwegian architecture firm Tyin Tegnestue created the dreamy structure in the coastal township of Aure. The architects reused the original materials from a run down 1800s boat house previously in that location to create the new boat dwelling. You can see the 150-year-old paneling and more fantastic photos at Designboom.
It even has a work table for fish gutting—what boat house would be complete without one? The long facade is made of shutters that when opened create a canopy. The shutter panels contain lighting covered by cotton canvas to create a soft glow. The total cost? $45,000. I want to go to there and stay a long, long time. [Remodelista; Images: Pasio Alto]
