The house features a spacious bedroom with sliding glass doors. The model suite, beached on land overlooked a water fountain, which gives it a slight nautical feel.

The house with a green roof made of sedum mats is, no doubt, a matter for us to talk about here! The boat has 18 inches below the water with a steel hull ensuring safety even in stormy weather conditions.

The best part of this houseboat is that it is not motor-driven. There are numerous possibilities to make the venture a ‘green’ one. The floating house opens up vast energy-saving options like solar heating, photo galvanic cladding, wind turbines, waste water treatment.
