Considering abandoning a house they were building, the Nebozenkos began to think a houseboat might be a better solution, even if only temporarily. They ended up buying one on eBay. They had expected to buy a small but livable vessel, but they took one look at what would become their home -- grand piano and all -- and fell in love.
Unlike most houseboat owners, the Nebozenkos live on theirs full-time along with their dog, Sailor. You can't really blame them, given that it's an extravagantly renovated Mississippi-style paddleboat. What do they like most about their floating home? "If you don't like your neighbors," Apryl says, "you just leave."
