This series follows the extraordinary adventures of families and couples who aspire to leave their landlocked suburbia to start a new life in stunning ‘aquatic homes’ that float.
Traditional waterfront properties are hard to come by and often expensive. So families who have dreamt for decades of waking up to an un-spoilt river view or watching the sunset over a seascape are now taking the ultimate plunge and putting all their money into a waterborne home.
From barge conversions and the smallest of canal cruisers to the largest of floating mansions we explore the cunning design and clever engineering behind these waterborne dream houses.
Constructing the floating foundations and designing their ingenious interiors are rarely plain sailing and we will unpack the tricks of the trade from saving space and downsizing to ensuring each house floats evenly as our pioneers overcome the many challenges they face along the way.
