With a darling little garden area by the dockside, the Portland Minnows is always cheerful and welcoming.
Swivel around to the back to make the most of a charming deck area.
As we savor the serene landscapes, the deck brings us some of the best alfresco dining amenities - including a grill and a dining table with chairs.
Vibrant reds line the interior as well as the exterior. The open-plan living area will delight all visitors with its retro furnishings.
Decor is simple but effective in this room. Wall art adds a subtle hint of elegance that nicely complements its neighboring antique fittings.
For a healthy dose of privacy, the bathroom is discreetly tucked away between the living area and kitchen.
As one expects in a floating tiny house, the Minnows brings us a very efficient kitchen. Wooden shelves ensure eating and cooking utensils are always handy.
Wondering about that ladder that keeps making a special appearance in the open-plan living area and kitchen? Climb on up to discover where this royal-blue sleeping loft resides. Once you've reached the top, a double bed will comfortably envelop you as you settle into a serene slumber.

Not quite a houseboat, but definitely a remarkable floating home. The Portland Oregon Minnows took everything one expects in a traditional tiny house - from the staple sleeping loft, to a myriad of efficiently composed living facilities - and used it to craft an idyllic lakeside dwelling. Indeed, this is a little red house with a big difference.

Known as a water villa, this unconventional floating home includes a lovely garden, a waterfront patio, and an ecofriendly design that includes the use of solar power.
