Fascinating video about a mew homes riverside construction.

Floating house. (http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=youtube+grand+design+floating+house&FORM=VIRE1#view=detail&mid=0D2E6C519A7922C224710D2E6C519A7922C22471)

the architects site shows a sump or channel down one side of the pool. I'm guessing it could be flushed or pumped in some way. The technology is Dutch, and they've a lot of experience.

Thanks for that, most interesting, and a nice wooden boat in it too!

I think I have met that homeowner numerous times in my career.

I know nothing of construction costs in that locale, but I don't believe the final conclusion that they came in near their initial budget estimate, even if the original contractor of the capsized ferry walked away completely shafted. In other words, I think the homeowner is lying through his teeth to save face. I've seen it before, and been chiseled myself. My cynicism runs deeper than the Thames at full flood.
