Reinforced concrete hulls
These floating homes are built on the same basis as most land based houses, its just the foundations can float. The hull is made from concrete which means there is no rusting, and condensation is minimal. In Holland the area inside the hull is usually used for living but with our prototype we have just used it for plant, services and storage.
Where can a reinforced concrete hull be located?
Our first concrete hull has been located on a disused canal in Chichester. Hopefully we can utilise other canals around the country as well. Rivers lakes and gravel pits are also suitable.
