View Slideshow

Whether you’re looking for a place to get away for the weekend or house for your whole family, Friday gives you that… and then some. Their Floating House is a modular design that lets you choose a cozy studio or a fully-furnished three-bedroom house, all of which float. Living in a cool, modern house would be pretty great, but imagine taking that house and placing it in the water so you can have your very own lakefront property with 360 degree views.

It comes with two small outboard motors that give your floating house the flexibility of moving it to a new place every day. It’s even built so that it can easily be stored in two standard containers and shipped to you anywhere in the world.
