a houseboat ‘town’ in Holland

when i was reading about this the other day, i immediately thought of the movie Waterworld

where they all lived on this awesome floating city

leave it to the Dutch to make lemonade out of the lemons – with land at a premium and uncertain sea levels, a houseboat community makes a LOT of sense!

these houseboats were built in a modular pre-fab style with basic doors, windows and walls that are customized by the owners. docks and interlocking ramps become sidewalks.

considering the effects of climate change on sea levels, are floating ‘neighborhoods’ going to be on the rise?!
