And...I'm home. The Schwimmhaus by German architects Confused-Direction is a green hausboot (oops, house boat) designed to float around or just stay put on the shore. Its modern pre-fab aesthetic sets it aside from most maritime-y houseboats, and a green roof adds freshness and sustainable cred. Still under construction, Schwimmhaus is being built from wood salvaged from an old farm house in addition to other sustainable building materials.
Have you ever daydreamed of selling all of your worldly possessions and buying a boat or had that romanticized notion of living on a houseboat with the water gently rocking you to sleep? After seeing Thesayboat houseboat, I want to make that dream a reality. Designed and owned by Marek Ridky of Flowhouse in the Czech Republic, the houseboat’s design was created as a home with views of the stars.
