Modernism takes to the seas with this beautiful wood-wrapped houseboat by German architects Rost Niderehe.
The 110 square-meter home is located on the Eilbek-canal in Hamburg next to a few great looking neighbors.

The boat is aptly named due to the fact that it only goes 3-4 miles per hour at a pedaling rate of 50rpm. 91-year-old naval architect Phil Thiel, born in Brooklyn, now in Seattle has created human-powered boats since his teenage years. Sailors tend to want headroom, as it keeps from being bashed about in rough seas and saves one from an aching back. To Daniel, I love pedal boating because it is generally easier, safer and softer on the body than walking the same distance. Wow, I admire him because in his early teenage years he created this human-powered boat through pedaling.
I would probably make it pop up like earlier mentioned (either light weight materials in the pop up or heavy canvas), and might steal the idea of an extra solar panel or two and an electric motor (at least for use in slightly faster water, as most American waters get seasonally quick). The Schwimmhaus by German architects Confused-Direction is a green hausboot (oops, house boat) designed to float around or just stay put on the shore. Based in Oldenburg, just a boat’s float up the Hunte River to the North Sea, Confused-Direction is a young design co-op founded by Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann. I've often thought it would be cool to live in a floating home and recently tried a short stint in an old sailboat. In the United States most local governments make it difficult or even impossible to have a floating home.

In response to "Logdog's" question concerning where he might get a permit for a floating home in NW Washington. I live in the Netherlands, and a lot of dutch people would disagree with your definition of a house boat. Cuando una pareja adquiriA? uno de esos amarres se puso en contacto con el arquitecto Robert Oshazt para que diseA±ara una estructura adecuada.
El amarre estA? encajonado entre dos pontones separados por menos de tres metros, y el encargo de Oshazt era construir una casa que pudiera flotar y al mismo tiempo gozara de privacidad, pese a la gran proximidad de las viviendas vecinas. La planta baja consta de un estudio, el dormitorio de invitados y la cocina, asA­ como de una sala de estar y un comedor conectados con la amplia terraza.
Seafaring homes have proven their viability through the years, and entire neighborhoods of coastal cities have sprouted up. The architects endeavored to make a comfortable home with all the amenities that does not have the land needs of a typical building.
This boat is not that efficient today but this is a great creation or invention history for me. Its modern pre-fab aesthetic sets it aside from most maritime-y houseboats, and a green roof adds freshness and sustainable cred. Does anyone know who an individual would contact in order to explore the permitting process? The Schwimmhaus is, by accepted definition, a "Floating Home" not a "houseboat." Houseboats are recreational, self-propelled vessels. Finalizada en 2.004, esta extraordinaria casa flotante captura artA­sticamente las curvas y giros del rA­o. Una vez a salvo sobre el amarre en cuestiA?n, es una vivienda que estA? en paz consigo misma y con su entorno.

This compact modern home combines prefab construction with an adaptable design to showcase the great potential of floating housing. Thiel’s Friend Ship might be more suitable as a live aboard, although I believe it is designed for motor, rather than pedal, power. Still under construction, Schwimmhaus is being built from wood salvaged from an old farm house in addition to other sustainable building materials. I realize it may not be an easy undertaking but feel confident if I could obtain the permits I could manage the rest of the factors. However, there is not likely to be much of a market, and certainly not any waiting list in Portland or Seattle, or any other city in the US. Build Wood Boats Build Wood Boats is dedicated to provinding amazing information on anything pertaining to boat building. The problem is that all US waters that can accommodate floating homes are governmentally-owned and essentially every possible berth that might be available is already owned and occupied.
NO more berths are being created, and in fact, in most jurisdictions, governmental agencies want living on the water in a permanent dwelling to be abated. The view is that living on the water should not be allowed, because the waters belong to ALL the people, and when people live on them, they are restricting their use for recreation by the general public.
