This gorgeous tiny off-grid prefab floating home can be assembled in just two days. Called LilliHaus, the self contained home is 3.2m w x 12m long and can be mounted atop a catamaran hull and sailed to a speed of four knots. The Brazillian architects, SysHaus, produce the homes on computer-controlled automatic machines to guarantee low construction waste, traceability of materials and quality of product.
There is also an option to construct the house on land and there are various floor plan configurations so you can use each module individually or combined to form a larger house.
What a fantastic idea to make the home adaptable for land and sea! Tiny homes just keep getting better and better.
