Futuristic Floating HomeAired on Dec 28, 2017
After 30 years living on River Itchen in Southampton, Gerald sets out to design and build an extraordinary new home–a futuristic fiberglass house, made on his “doorstep” at Shamrock Quay Marina, designed and built by his 27 year old son, Aidan. The home is made from scratch by carefully building up layers of fiberglass to create two hollow hull sections. Gerald visits the job site often, adding details to the design and keeping the pressure on his son. From underfloor heating to music speakers in his shower, Gerald wants his new home to be full of luxurious fixtures, causing delays to the build schedule. By winter, Gerald ends up the proud owner of a unique modern home, with stunning interiors and space to entertain, and a very proud father, acknowledging what his son Aidan has achieved.

Lee and Justine want to transform an old steel hull boat into a 2 story floating house on the River Medway near Rochester, England. With only 16 weeks to build, the crew must battle bad weather and the enormous daily tide that lifts and drops the boat, twice a day. To make matters worse, when Justine’s huge diesel powered oven needs to be lifted on board, the weight of the oven causes the house to tilt, threatening it to collapse. The result is an amazing house with sleek modern interiors and upper decks that provide the perfect platform to soak in spectacular views of the river.
