Haixi floating house on the sea
A whole house is floating in the sea. A Chinese entrepreneur has built such a floating house off the coast of China’s Fujian province. This 600 square feet house named Haixi cost only 4 lakh yuan to build. The house was built by young entrepreneur Coastline. Coastline, who grew up in a coastal area, chatted with his friend Dong Jinming one night in 2018 and asked what it would be like to build a floating house in the sea. One could enjoy fishing and feasting all day long. That night they decided to build a floating house. Coastline wanted to use as much glass as possible in the structure of the building for aesthetic reasons. But to make it strong and durable, he had to leave aside the external beauty and use steel. The house is tied to 16 metal anchors. If the house is ever to be moved, the anchor must be lifted and towed to the new location by a powerboat.

House floating on the river
Just outside the town of Bajina Basta in western Serbia, a strange house sits on a rocky hill on the Drina river. For more than 50 years, this nameless house has stood on a rock in the middle of the river. The house was first built with the idea that it would be great to live on. Even if the water level rises, the house is protected. In the once uninhabited area, human settlement gradually developed around the river. Even the houses were started to be built on the river. There are several stone pillars on the river. Tourists want to spend time in a house that floats on the river.
