MOS Architects’ Pontoon Prefab

Living life on Lake Huron, this Canadian house wasn’t made on site, but rather built elsewhere then floated to its destination.

The Fennell Residence

Made by notable architect Robert Harvey Oshatz who devised the seashell structure, it incorporates wide windows that provide ample light at all times.

Floating Penthouse

Heading north from Portland to the waterways of Seattle, we find this luxury home that runs into the $3.5 million range.

Blooming Bamboo Home

Costing a scant $2,500 to build and capable of being outfitted with reclaimed oil drums so that when the creek rises, the house goes along with it.
