Oh, wow. This cabin floats and is solar-powered!

Limmared, Sweden-based prefab builder Kenjo offers up small prefab cabins designed for those needing more space than can be used as a guest house, relaxation space, office, studio or even a floating house. One of the firm’s more recent projects was a floating cabin for the Sandell family in Muskö. The project consists of a modern, one-room cabin with a simple interior and flexible furnishings. Located on a floating platform with access to the water, the cabin serves as extra living space right on the water. The roof features a solar photovoltaic system to provide energy for the cabin and make it off-grid for the LED lighting and the stereo system.
