Land Is Expensive. Buy This Floating House Instead.

You like waterfront property? We'll do you one better.

Waterfront property: everyone wants it, few can afford it. Why? There's a limited supply.

But what about watertop property? Last time we checked, two-thirds of the earth is covered with water, and very little of that is habitable as is.

That all changes, though, with the WaterNest 100, a floating domicile featuring recycled laminated timber, amorphous solar panels, recycled aluminium hull and an eco-friendly water filtering system.

Made from sustainable materials that make it 98% recyclable, the 1,076-square-foot WaterNest is light enough to float on oceans, rivers or the pond behind your parent’s house, and can function as a home, restaurant, office, bar, studio space or the grooviest Airbnb on the planet.

In addition to its unique design and focus on green living, the WaterNest 100 — which was designed by Giancarlo Zema for EcoFloLife — sports luxury flourishes throughout, including multiple balconies, skylights, teak flooring, smart home control tech and a micro-ventilated air conditioning system. But the party doesn’t end there, as the buoyant abode also can be outfitted with its own line of funky furniture (chairs, tables, lamps, etc.) inspired by the layers of the Grand Canyon.
