Barier Houses

They're shaped like soccer balls! They float if it floods! They come in nearly any size you want, even for doggies!

Barier Houses! Strong With Disasters!!

The sensible structures are made in Japan by World Window, and can be bought either fully assembled or in kit form.

If one were to be attempting to rebuild say, a city demolished by floods (New Orleans, Ao Nang, Tamil Nadu,) this might be a dwelling worth considering. Put it up on stilts above the water line and you're ready for anything.

Smart houses for smart people.
