Bluefield Houseboats

Pre-fabricated homes first made their way onto the American market thanks to the Sears Catalog. The company allowed families to buy and finance homes and have them delivered in modular units to be assembled on whatever piece of land they wanted. A lot has changed since the early 20th century, but modular homes are still with us, and as Bluefield Houseboats is illustrating – they are versatile enough to be as modern and creative as you’d hope.

Made by a company based in Ireland, these boats are designed to be easily customizable and environmentally friendly. Each houseboat is built around the principle of “passive design”. Instead of fighting against the surrounding environment to create a comfortable living space, each houseboat takes advantage of the surrounding climate to heat, cool, and ventilate the space – reducing energy bills and creating a smaller carbon footprint. Each one of these boats comes with a minimum 50 year life, and can come in 500 or 2,000 square foot configurations in either one or two stories. Prices are available on request. [Purchase]
