Space on most houseboats is fairly limited. So the appliances and storage tend to be compact, and some furniture will do "double duty". [[Compact house]]s and [[mobile home]]s have some of the same issues with limited space.

Houseboats can vary quite a bit in size -- from a small boat to a large yacht.

Houseboat in Yangso, China.

Houseboats are one place people live. In some cultures, living on the water is common -- either on stilts or in a houseboat. In other places, a houseboat is a luxury -- a second home. Sometimes people who love to travel, select a houseboat as a way of living that allows them to move around.

Do you like the water? Do you want to live very near it?

Like other home structures, houseboats can be bought or rented.

Space on most houseboats is fairly limited. So the appliances and storage tend to be compact, and some furniture will do "double duty". Compact houses and mobile homes have some of the same issues with limited space.

Houseboats can vary quite a bit in size -- from a small boat to a large yacht.
