We’ve written about various architectural triumphs over the element of water over the years. The latest is more homemade than some luxury hotel – this is a cabin floating in the middle of a Maine lake made by Foy and Louisa Brown.
Foy Brown, who in his day job works at the family boat-building business J.O. Brown & Sons Shipyard, originally intended his floating domicile as a rental property. But he eventually decided that being a floating landlord wasn’t for him, and now he and his wife live in the cabin in the spring, summer, and fall.
So, that means you won’t be able to stay in the Browns’ floating cabin, called Chateau Bathtub, any time soon – unless you strike up a friendship with Foy or Louisa Brown (conversation suggestion: “Hey Foy, did you ever think about adding an ‘x’ to your name?”). But you can see some pictures of the cabin in the gallery up top, and read more about the project here.
