Article By:

A DIY hybrid floating home is being developed in Europe.

It is still in early stages, but the idea is that if you use readily available basic cheap diy materials and avoid fancy-priced sea-going marine fittings It is possible to build a simple solar powered floating home with electric drive and basic home utilities, suitable for use on inland lakes and canals.

The design is modular, so that a small home can be dis-assembled and transported in a standard Ford transit van. You will probably find it by searching for ayb houseboat.

It employs some modern materials and techniques unseen elsewhere on boats.

There is currently a DIY manual and various Kits and components to supplement your local supplier.

Top of the range built and delivered is under £15000 while a complete kit is less than £5000.
