But a new German company is changing that with the advent of Floating Homes, a prefab dwelling created especially for the water.

    They’re fabulous looking. I’d be interested in how they have withstood wind and wave, say
    of Force 6 and better, though presumably they would always be anchored in sheltered
    places. Still one must confess a degree of skepticism when land-based concepts move
    afloat. There is a difference, as many have discovered. Interested in any comments.

    Would be interested in how these have stood up in wind and wave, say Force 6 or better;
    although one supposes their location would always be protected. The transposition of
    land-based design to the sea can be a rather iffy proposition.

    I enjoy looking at the concept of the floating homes. I would rather see extremely efficient and eco-friendly designs that incorporate solar collection and water collection. The simpler the design the more appealing it is to me. When I see fancy curves and angles I know that the price is usually too high for a comfortable home. Just my opinion. Sincerely Roger Engley

    What is the benefit of these things in comparison to a houseboat.
