It’s amazing that even though on water, Bluefield Houseboats look just like regular homes. Each one is custom made in Ireland and gives its future residents an opportunity to help out with the design.
Besides looking great, these prefabricated floating homes are environmentally friendly. What do we mean by that? Well, firstly, the entire production process is designed to minimize energy consumption. Second, they implemented natural heating, cooling and ventilation. This is both cost-efficient and reduces the energy footprint.
Also, inside the home, there’s a smart automation system. This way, residents can control all appliances that use energy simply with a phone or a tablet. The house uses high-quality materials and features a modern and elegant interior. It’s built first and then shipped for it to be assembled on the site.
“We’ve been developing this concept for years, and we are very proud of what we have created and excited about its possibilities. At Bluefield Houseboats our mission is to create high quality, usable space on the water which is accessible to all and maximizes the use of modern technology to explore sites which have previously been inaccessible.” explained the designers.
Bluefield Houseboats will be available in different sizes. You can choose somewhere between 500 square feet all the way up to 2,000 square feet. Also, there are both one and two-storey versions. It takes around 10 weeks to build it.
