Seattle Floating Homes Association

Welcome to the Seattle Floating Homes Association (FHA). We are a nonprofit organization that serves the interests of the FHA members and its surrounding communities. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors whose mission is to protect, preserve and promote the vitality of Seattle’s historic floating homes community through education, advocacy, environmental stewardship and collaboration.

In response to an unusually large number of notices that the city issued to owners of floating homes late last year and widespread confusion about what work requires an exemption under the shoreline act or a permit we are monitoring Department of Construction and Inspections (DCI formerly DPD). If you have received a Notice of Violation (NoV) either last year or this, it would be helpful if you would fill out the form you will find here. Please note that the FHA cannot provide legal advice to homeowners at this time.
