Okay, so most people don't think of ships as buildings.  But they are constructed, and people live on them for long periods of time.  Some served on rivers, some on the oceans, some in peace and some in war.  Travel by water has been crucial to the development of our economy and our ties to each other and the world.  If you know of some ships we missed, let us know, please, and we'll add them.
