Houseboat – the best offers from Sparks Life

August 26, 2021

Many people dream of living near the water so that you can see the sea, lake or river from the villa window. What about settling right over the water?Houseboat is a symbiosis of a residential building and a yacht. Translated from English, the word “houseboat” denotes a floating house. It is built on a special foundation and equipped with absolutely everything that is necessary for a comfortable life. Individual variations of floating houses allow their own owners to go to them on water journeys.

Let`s have little history

In Holland of the early 20 century, people had a catastrophic lack of housing. This prompted local residents to convert old barges into houses. Subsequently, this innovative idea for those times was adopted by other countries. For example, in the United States of America, by 30 years of the last century, the number of floating houses had reached 2,000. This industry has developed, shops, hotels and even banks on the water have begun to appear. To this day, houseboats have not lost their own popularity. In addition, many States have specialized parking spaces for them. The most famous countries in which entire communities of floating houses are present are the Netherlands, Canada, the United States of America, Great Britain, Germany, India, Australia and New Zealand.

Kinds of floating houses

There are many different variations of houseboats: for living all year round and seasonal, on piles, ship base or floods. The most common models of floating housing are mobile, equipped with engines and non-movable meals, bridges for connection to the shore. Varieties of water houses without a motor stand moored to the coastal line. They are not only fixed in a certain place, but also connected to them communications: electricity, water supply. Mobile modifications of houses are equipped with modern boat engines and an independent power supply system. As a result, they are able to carry out prolonged sea or river ties.

The design of the interior of floating cottages is diverse. They can accommodate 2 to 6 rooms, be single-level or with two “floors” equipped with an open terrace and deck, right on the roof of the building. Life in houseboats is no less comfortable than in ordinary cottages on land. Floating houses can be arranged in such a way as to live there permanently on a permanent basis. In addition, each owner of such a villa will be able to give it a unique interior of all rooms and a unique, exclusive external design.

Life on the water – where to start?

So you decided to buy a house on the water, but you don’t know where to start. Here are some tips, from our company.

  1. The first stage is you call the specialists of “Sparks Life.”
  2. The next step is to view the demo. As a famous saying says: “You need to see once!.”
  3. Then you, at least approximately, explain to our specialists what you want to get as a result.

The third stage is necessary in view of the fact that the construction of houseboatsis carried out under the order. We need to understand the purpose of your future cottage: giving on water for time with family and friends, ship for cruises, bath or house fisherman, or a full villa for life. It is on this basis that the subsequent design, equipment and, naturally, the cost of the floating house is formed.

It will also be necessary to discuss at least approximately the list of rooms and their approximate quadrature. This is necessary because everyone has their own ideas about comfort: someone is excited about spacious premises, and anyone is cozy only in small rooms. Some customers want a sauna on the territory of a floating house, while others need a terrace and so on. Finally, we will discuss with you the desired budget of the future building.

For what purposes do you need houseboats?

This floating structure has many purposes. First, it may be the second or only housing. In addition to being a fully functional home, the owner of the houseboat is able to optimize his own time and emotional resources. For example, living in a noisy, gas-filled metropolis 5 or 6 days a week,it is so pleasant to get out for the weekend to a comfortable house on the river. Especially since it is not necessary to collect things, to worry that you can forget anything in a hurry. There is everything you need on board your cottage on the water. All you have to do is relax and enjoy your rest. In addition, only you decide what the view from your window will be today. At the same time, it is not necessary to leave the limits of housing.

In addition to the entire above, houseboat is a full-fledged ship for long-term cruises with a home out. Everything here is always at hand. You will be able to change the environment, enjoy the beauty of nature and picturesque water landscapes, staying in comfort.

Fans of fishing and hunting will also appreciate floating houses. Such accommodation can be equipped according to its own needs and spend a lot of exciting days, weeks or months a year.

An office on the water is another creative solution that will certainly be appreciated by your customers. Originality in a complex with mobility and picturesque landscapes will certainly not leave them indifferent. In addition, if there is a need to move, it is possible to do it easily in-service.

With Houseboat from Sparks Life, your life is bound to be filled with new dating, positive emotions, independence and a mass of travel.
