What is a floating Home ?

Floating houses are similar in concept and can be defined those houses which are constructed on water in a way that the load of the structure is equal or less than the uplift force of the water which helps in floating the house on water.

How much do they cost ? And are they safe ?

Space on the water is cheaper than on land. Experts estimate the cost to build a 1,200-square-foot (110 m2), three-bedroom, floating house starting at about $120,000 or 110.000 Euro

Paradoxically, floating homes may also be safer during smaller storms than houses built on land.
Think of a floating home like a condo, but rather than a unit in a building, it’s a unit on the water with HOA dues paid to maintain the dock and slip. Floating homes are permanently connected to sewer, water and electrical, built and moved into place just once.
One of the biggest advantages to buying a floating home should be obvious: unlike houseboats, they don’t need a motor or method of self-propulsion. … In some states, owning a floating home does not technically constitute owning “real property,” and as such, there may be no property taxes associated

Non-cruising houseboats

Houseboats are domiciles on the water, much like floating homes. They can be moved, and are self-propelled. … These are different than other types of homes on land in that they require maintenance, and often more than just the mechanical sort of maintenance.

Non-cruising houseboats are similar to houses on land in this respect — they’re simply hooked up to a direct source of water and sewage treatment. Known as a „water hookup,“ an external hose brings in „city water,“ or water from any fresh-water system, directly onto the boat.

Wellenkraftwerke | Wave Power Technology

Wellenkraftwerke sind eine Form kleinerer Wasserkraftwerke. Sie nutzen die Energie der Meereswellen zum Gewinnen elektrischen Stroms und zählen zu den erneuerbaren Energien. Bisher realisierte Anlagen sind Prototypen und dienen verschiedenen Versuchen und Erprobungen. Wikipedia

Wave power is the capture of energy of wind waves to do useful work – for example, electricity generation, water desalination, or pumping water. A machine that exploits wave power is a wave energy converter (WEC)
