28 Ways to Live on Water

Aquatic Residences from Redneck Houseboats to Floating Lofts

— May 2, 2009 — Art & Design
If you've ever wanted to live on water, it's never been more hip than with the aquatic residences seen in this cluster. There is something for all personality types and incomes, from fancy floating lofts to redneck house boats, and floating retirement condos to floating eco communities.

Whatever floats your boat, there's an aquatic residence to help fulfill your dream to live on water.

Implications - With urban areas becoming highly populated due to an abundance of job opportunities, cramped citizens are seeking more comfortable living situations. Consumers are desperate for personal space and seek open-concept architecture or rural homes. Industries can cater to this demographic by offering products or structures that maximize private space.
