A team of designers from the University of Coimbra in Portugal recently produced a prefabricated home that can be shipped to almost anywhere in the world. In recent years, prefabricated homes have become increasingly popular because they are inexpensive to build and easy to assemble. These floating prefab houses demonstrates that these kind of shelters are perfect for land and sea.

The 'Floatwing' homes are designed to allow customers to live on some of the world's most remote bodies of water. The custom homes can be built in a wide variety of sizes depending on the needs of the customer. Once all the prefabricated pieces have been manufactured, the home can be shipped to nearly anywhere in the world. The homes are self-sustaining, meaning customers can live on the water without disrupting the natural environment.

The floating homes demonstrate a viable option for living on remote waterways.
