What designer could pass on the opportunity to buy a floating home like the one featured in the movie Sleepless in Seattle? Well, not this one! When I purchased this floating home from my aunt and uncle, I undertook a huge out-of-state remodel. Up for the challenge, I grabbed my water wings, sketchpad, & measuring tape. It was sink or swim for Patricia Lockwood to finish before the end of 2014. The big reveal for the finished houseboat on Sauvie Island will be in the summer of 2015 - so stay tuned.

AFTER: The old carpeting has been replaced with black floor tiles that are ideal for wet feet coming in from the river. The wood-paneled walls have been painted white. Lockwood custom-designed a media cabinet on the back side of the kitchen island. The media cabinet is built out of the same butcher block that tops the kitchen counter. “With the new dining area, it wasn’t necessary to have an island with stools,” Lockwood says. “This layout is more functional and makes the space feel more contemporary.”
