Floating in Seattle!

     You have to love it when you and the people you meet here in the rain, get to take their umbrellas and go do something good together out there in the "real rain"----the real world.

Catching Courtney     I had the distinct pleasure of doing an inspection with Courtney Cooper, of Cooper Jacobs Real Estate Services the other day. 

 

     I met Courtney here on ActiveRain way back when I first started playing here in the rain and we got to know each other as she and I duked it out on our way to the top two spots in Seattle----here on ActiveRain.  In those days it seemed like a daunting feat to get to the top, but now I just enjoy sitting up there with Courtney.

 

     We met for real, the first time, at the first Seattle ReBar camp a couple of years ago and have seen each other at Raincamps to follow----and have always threatened to work together.

 

     As those of you that know Courtney know----and for those of you that don't know her yet----Courtney has carved out for herself a nice little niche in the world of houseboats.  If you want to know anything about houseboats----or floating homes as they are also known----just ask Courtney Cooper

 

     It was great fun doing the inspection with her and having the inspection be a floating home to  boot made it extra special.

Seattle House Boats

     Houseboats are the quintessential definition of Seattle eclectic----and I relish every opportunity to wander the docks.  This is not an easy feat because most of the docks are private-----some even gated.

 

     At this inspection Courtney had brought in a diver to checrawdadck out the "foundation."  I was happy to defer to others everything below the finish floor surface.  This was one crawl swim space I did not mind NOT inspecting-----although it would have been cool checking out 100 year old logs.  The diver brought some trinkets up for us all to check out----like this crawdad----aint't it cute?

 

     It was a beautiful day on Lake Union and the views were worth a million bucks----or two.  Here is one of the views----pretty spectacular don't you think?
