George Clarke's amazing spaces


Recommended Posts

Just watching tonight's episode.


A couple are making a floating home by casting a concrete hull around the bottom of a shipping container.


They have just launched it and it floats, but boy oh boy, with nothing actually fitted in the container yet, the freeboard is minute.


Why do i get the feeling once it is fitted out, it will have almost no freeboard and be incredibly vulnerable to getting swamped and sinking?

I think when they were casting the "hull" they had problems with the shuttering bursting so may not have poured the concrete as high as originally planned.


but even George commented on the water level being very close to the doorway.
