A floating house along Danube river

The Romanian Naval Authority took the opportunity and created a floating house also known as Pontoon Bedroom.
They got their inspiration from a vacation house that was located in the Danube Delta, residing closer to water and carrying the advantage of being mobile. Due to this advantage of mobility, it can be shifted to different locations depending upon the season and needs of tourists.
The advantages consist in:
  • No maintenance costs
  • Stability at much higher weight, even under the influence of waves and wind pressure
  • Ability to check the inside of the float and react immediately in case of any problem

Also extremely economical LED lamps provide lightning that are powered by 12 V batteries. The batteries are loaded by wind turbines and solar panels. There is also a heat engine generator for powering the batteries if they do not get enough power. Solar panels and instant gas also provide hot water.
