Floating Homes

Floating Homes

Could building floating homes be the answer to sea level rise?  I've always believed that Global warming is going to happen, but that we'd develop technology solutions to combat the effects of the change.  Here's one response to the challenge - a home that can literally float away as the water rises.

I think it's an interesting Image titleconcept, but there are definitely challenges to running a floating home. While this is being developed to be able to operate off-grid, it's probably more practical to have an option to connect to city water/sewer/electric, similar to a mobile home.  Also, while it would be fun to visit a home that is only accessible via boat, after a few days of novelty most people will want to be able to exit the property in more conventional ways.  Therefore it makes sense to make a floating pathway/road to connect these properties. 

These houses definitely look modern, but I think they'd benefit from a slash of color.

Would you be willing to live in a house like this?  Would you rent one for a vacation?
