Realtor.com has spotlighted this home in a recent article, here are some details from the article on how this home came to be:

In 1949, the boat was going to be scrapped, when a local librarian and her father bought the stern portion of the vessel.

So, they bought this boat for a thousand dollars, and they barged it over to Mercer Island. They cut down some trees, sort of winched it up onto the property, and put it on a foundation," [listing agent Lori] Holden Scott explains.

What was once one-fifth of a boat was then converted into a residence, permanently affixed to dry land. The converted boat is now a 1,390-square-foot home, with three bedrooms, one full bathroom, and two half-bathrooms.
