Pre-fabricated houses first reached the American industry through the Sears Catalog. The business enabled families to purchase and finance modular homes and get them shipped in modular units to be put together to whatever chunk of land they owned. There are so many changes and developments in home designs and styles in few decades, but modular homes are still used like the Bluefield Houseboats. As the name suggests, its not your typical modular home, it is a floating house! They are adaptable enough to be as contemporary and innovative as you would imagine.
Created by a company established in Ireland, these boats are made to be easily personalized and eco-friendly. Each houseboat is made around the concept of “passive design”. Rather than fighting against the environment to produce a very comfortable living area, each houseboat makes use of the encircling weather conditions to cool, heat, and ventilate the room–minimizing energy bills and producing a smaller carbon footprint. These boats features a minimum 50 year lifespan, and are available in 500 or 2,000 square foot designs in either 1 or 2 stories.
