What is it like to have wet feet everyday? In the overpopulated deltas of the Philippines, people live in areas where they experiene daily flooding. Floods are worsenign rapidly due to land subsidence and sea level rise. The demand for safe and dry housing is immense, yet available dry land is scarce. We recently built the first floating home, so people can live safe and comfortably with the water instead of in the water. This first pilot home is now being tested by a Filipino family.
