    I love the wood finishes and the windows look like they heavy duty and as if they are energy efficient. I would like to find out the square footage and energy efficiency rating of the house boat.

    The other thing that goes through my mind is the lighthouse covered with ice on Lake Michigan.

    Interesting question. I'd contact the architect, linked.
