The Futuristic Last Resort - Solar Floating House

The Futuristic Last Resort – Solar Floating House

When we think of homes by the sea, we tend to think of relaxation, vacation properties, and of course, we mostly think of them as immovable homes. “Last Resort”, a new floating home design, will make you not only think of science fiction; but from a luxury resort that lives and a nice sweet home. This very futuristic stylish house has a fully functional and very practical design that won the recent competition; which secures designer funds to bring a quick start to making this solar-powered floating home.

Last Resort

They call their home design “Last Resort” and have full hopes to start making these houses before the end of 2019. This is all thanks to the fresh and innovative thinking of RAFFA Architectures & Designs. The competition they won; proposed by the Bauausstellung Internationale in Germany, will allow the funding needed to start building this floating house. They are designed to be fully sustainable and are designed to be 5 meters by 15 meters. These Last Resort houses will soon provide several choices of places to stay by the sea that is very modern, comfortable, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly.

The Last Resort has a simple entrance design to the house, through a covered patio area; from which you can enter directly into the house or go up the stairs to the roof. The roof serves as a relaxing area where you can sit back, sunbathe in the sun, and enjoy the watery views.

Save Money and the Environment With Eco Lunchboxes

Save Money and the Environment With Eco Lunchboxes

Did you know that you can help protect the environment when you are packing your child’s lunch? Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Well, it’s true. Lunch boxes are a great way to reduce dependence on plastic or to eliminate using it altogether.

Packing Your Kid’s Lunch

When you are packing your kid’s lunch, what containers do you use? Do you grab those little plastic sandwich bags and fill them up with stuff? If you do, just think about all the plastic waste that is going into the trash every day. You use a plastic baggie for the sandwich, for the snacks, and perhaps a plastic juice or water bottle – all of which end up in the garbage can at the end of the day.

Well, just imagine if all the other kids are doing the same thing. After a while, all those little baggies, all those water bottles or plastic juice containers, and whatever else end up in the landfill. Now that’s a lot of waste, especially since plastic does not decompose rapidly. It takes a plastic bag anywhere from 20 to 1000 years to decompose. And a plastic water bottle an estimated 100 years or more to decompose. When you look at it that way, every little bit of plastic waste you can prevent from adding to the ever-growing landfills really can make a difference.
