Sticking out from the white fiberglass hulls that fill the marina, sits the two story 550 sq ft. green house boat affectionately named Sweet Pea. Aside from it’s bright paint color, Sweet Pea is also the first house boat certified by Build Green and features a variety of eco-concious design elements. Inside the L/G washer dryer combo, two-burner induction cooktop, LED lights, and a variety of other modern amenities are powered by roof mounted solar panels.
The Sweet Pea was constructed by Mike Auderer, owner of Olympia Construction, who now lives in the boat after down-sizing from a three story Victorian. He plans to start constructing similarly designed house boats for public sale and believes a turnkey model could be made for anywhere between $100,000 to $150,000.
