The Famous FloatHouse on Lake Travis
For currentlake levelsgo here.
Not only does Rick DuRapau's house float on Lake Travis, it's also got its own outdoor playscape. DuRapau turned a radio tower into rope swing.
People come by all the time. On this day, DuRapau greets friend Tom Peiser, left, and builder Curtis Brown.
Rick and Ann DuRapau's 2-story house is anchored with 4 cables. The system allows it to adapt to changing lake levels.
The master bedroom's windows look out onto the deck and the cove below.
Even the upstairs bathroom has a sense of humor in its fishing lure drapes and shower curtain.
33The downstairs game room reflects the fun of the house with a pool table, shuffleboard and eclectic wall hangings.
The barbecue grill hangs off the railing, perfect for keeping the food flowing during a summer party on the lake.
DuRapau's 3-bedroom house can sleep 14 people in beds - some are trundles, and 2 fold down from the wall like this.
