My Floating Home - The Chichester

Floating Homes Limited have completed the build of their first prototype buoyant building designed  by Baca Architects. Inspired by canal living, the ‘Chichester’ model is not a houseboat but a house that floats.

The whole build took four months to complete and has a starting price of £200k plus VAT (no vat payable on residential) which includes the interior fit-out but excludes delivery and mooring fees. The ‘Chichester’ offers an appealing lifestyle in either urban or countryside settings. 

The journey Mark & Holly Junak took to realise their dream of living on the water was featured in episode 1 of My Floating Home on More4 which was broadcast on the 15th September 2016. It now available on catch up once again My Floating Home -Episode 1

Sunamp

Renewable energy has huge potential to become the dominant source of energy in the economy, however the inherent intermittency of most renewable sources represents a huge weakness. It is universally accepted that energy storage is the key to overcoming this. Sunamp designs, produces and sells non-toxic, compact and highly efficient heat batteries that can be used to store heat for a number of applications including many renewable and low carbon technologies. This supplies all the hot water needs for the Chichester.

Built Environment & Vent-Axia

Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery is the sustainable and eco friendly method of heating and cooling homes. Low carbon, energy saving and clean, these systems negate the need for trickle ventilation whilst noise pollution and heat loss is greatly reduced. Not only this but the changing of air through a heat exchanger removes pollution without draughts.

Built Environment Technoolgy offer a specialist installation service, from detailed specifications and drawings through to supply and site support. Not only this, but they offer ongoing service and maintenance after installation.

Vent-Axia have been at the forefront of ventilation for 75 years, and are a British manufacturer of high repute. Of course they fit the Floating Homes ethos!
