Mini-Case Study | May 2021

Problem

SAUSALITO, CALIFORNIA — A floating home is a building, ranging from a tiny house to a four-story home, that floats on a body of water. Unlike a houseboat, a floating home is meant to be moved just once, placed on a floating concrete foundation, and permanently connected to public utilities; i.e., floating homes are permanently connected to municipal sewer, water, and electrical.
