Cool Idea: A Boat Garage

I spotted this photograph, shot by James R. Salomon, of a home on Squaw Lake, NH, and turned green with envy. Not only do these homeowners have a lake as their backyard, but they have a garage for their boats actually attached to their home. Maybe I'm not familiar enough with waterfront homes, but this seems really extraordinary. And if you hold your hand up to block the water, the house looks any other New England home with a garage you might see on land; it's seamlessly integrated. Better yet, the garage roof offers itself up as an expansive deck extending from the interior where the family can look out at the lake. Remind me why I'm living in a small apartment in the city again?
