Horrible News!!

My client's Floating Home burnt down last night!!!

After I heard the news I called Jim (my client) and he said he was going to call me to tell me "that he wanted to drop the listing price." But I had already heard the news.

My heart goes out to him. His home was crafted entirely by him, it was some of the most beautiful wood work you could imagine.

From the Marin IJ:
"Firefighters with the help of two fire boats were able to contain an explosive two-alarm blaze Thursday afternoon that gutted one houseboat and nearly destroyed another on the Sausalito waterfront.

Fire crews who arrived near the end of Liberty Dock at Waldo Point Harbor at about noon found a big column of smoke rising from a two-story houseboat at 49 Liberty Dock that was fully engulfed in flames. Fire then shot over to the neighboring houseboat at 48 Liberty Dock....

There are more pictures of his home on my listing website:

There is going to be a benefit for Jim, my client. As soon as I know more, I'll post it here!

Oh Liz! Sorry to hear about your friends place. What an awesome home. Look at the wood. What a loss for him. With his talent I hope this doesn't stop him from starting again.
