The Series

In this series, MARK EVANS charts the exploits of individuals, couples and families who aspire to leave landlocked suburbia behind to live in the ultimate waterside dream home – stunning ‘aquatic homes’ that float on water.

Traditional waterfront properties are hard to come by and 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 commissioning a home that floats on water.

Prices range from around £100,000 for a one bed floating flat, all the way up to $2 million for an aquatic mansion. From San Francisco to Seattle, Vancouver to Holland, the Great Lakes to the River Thames in London – sales of waterborne homes are booming.

Mark follows the drama of each house being built, launched, fitted out and furnished. Building a house on water is a huge challenge - completely different to constructing a conventional home on land.
