Fact of the Day  


More Information  

Entire neighborhoods of floating housing can aid places with water problems similar to that of the Netherlands, in which they were designed out of necessity. As touched upon in FAQ #16, Small Living Space , the Netherlands is 50% below sea level, among other motivating conditions. Instead of falling when the waters rise, a new New Orleans could float atop the untamable waters when necessary.
The company making these homes is called Ooms Bouwmaatschappij (pronounce at own risk). The base of the construction is concrete covered styrofoam. The walls and roofing are composed of wood and aluminum for a virtually maintenance free home. Some of these houses can be found 300 feet offshore. This technology will eventually lead to floating cities able to be stable anywhere in open water [Findaproperty.com].
