If you noticed houses of San Francisco Bay Area you will found that House boats are common.  Inhabitants find this type of residence as a confined one. The Tafoni Floating Home, designed by Joanna Borek-Clement intends to design it in such a way so that it looks both voluminous and compact. The design of the house is motivated by smooth, oval California coastal pebbles, is preferably suited for the houseboat district of Sausalito, and has adequate space for even the most claustrophobic client.

The house has three parts a kitchen, living room, and bedroom area.  Both living room and Bed room has tafoni shaped window. There is difference between common houseboats and the Tafoni house. Tafoni house boats have high ceilings and negligible partitions which gives it roomy look.

There are no special characters of the house that exhibits its sustainability though Borek-Clement stated that, Houseboats, as different to conventional homes, have no basics that lastingly impact the land. It can be float from one dock to another to let the sheltered land below them to recover. As change in climatic condition strikes some coastal areas tough, floating homes gain popularity.
