A Modular Concept that Combines Inexpensive Small Homes with Water Living

Houseboats November 2, 2016

Here is a home where you could have your cake and eat it too! That is, have all your at home comforts without having to stay in one spot! The Tubiq is a unique modular concept that would make living on the water comfortable and fun. Whether you would be a full time or part time resident, this home would give you the freedom to navigate open waters. You could travel and never have to wonder if you forgot something at home since you brought your house with you.

Inside would be a chic modern design that allows for plenty of ocean views. No cramped quarters or bunk beds in this water home! The Tubiq is built to withstand the elements so your interior does not need to be specialized for water living. With the option of a one or two story home, there would be plenty of room for guests or family.

The decks are perfect for sun tanning, fishing, and any other outdoor enjoyment. Since this modular concept is made up interchangeable modules, a customer can customize the number of rooms or size of their own Tubiq. The customer is also given the freedom to upgrade their Tubiq with electric engines and solar panels. The filtration system for water in this home is of the finest quality. With upgrades, the Tubiq would be totally self supporting and allow its inhabitants to enjoy any body of water!

Overall this option of living or vacationing is great! Especially for those of us who would like to enjoy our regular morning coffee, favorite throw blanket, or “fur-family” cuddles all while on the road, or in this case, the water!
