Lower Your Carbon Footprint with an Eco Floating Home

Lower Your Carbon Footprint with an Eco Floating Home

The Eco Floating Home's ethos is "to construct healthy, ethical homes that enhance the countryside and deliver maximum comfort with minimum energy bills and a small carbon footprint." These homes utilize energy efficiently by harnessing natural light, incorporate solar heating, photo galvanic cladding, waste and water treatment, and passive energy control systems like green roofs.

They also boast sustainable building practices which reduce the amount of timber and labour used for each product. I know that houseboats are generally not the most eco-friendly structures, but I wonder how these ones would stand up against the rest!
