Floating home

Floating homes are often pretty dull, the expedient way to park your living space at a marina and save on property taxes. They are rarely as gorgeous as these prefab floating homes from Germany.

Sometimes you need to ask yourself if that lifestyle is for you. These days, you can get almost all the comfort you have at home plus the added bonus of letting the worries float away
