Floating home on a private pond in New Zeeland

This home would be a little to small for us, but I like the spectacularly beautiful view over the pond. Also, I envy those who are able to build houses without having to think about insulation. In the video, he mentioned that the house has 20-millimeter insulation in the walls. When you are building in Sweden, you typically need 400 millimeter of insulation. You also need an air pump making bubbles in the water during winter if you don’t want to risk a boat or floating home to get crushed by the ice.

I think they made the right choice buying a scenic patch of land to live on and develop it over a long period.

What did you think of this house?

That would make a great vacation rental!

Happy creating!

I’m not sure I would be able to stay away long enough to make renting it out possible. 😀
