With the change in lifestyles, people are getting attracted towards alternate living. A construction expert, Terry Tracy shared why every architect in Orange County must learn design and configuration of floating homes. Before understanding her thoughts, one should realize what a floating home is. In simple terms, a floating home is a structure which is permanently moored and cannot move under its own power. People often confuse it with a houseboat, a structure that moves easily and can be steered anywhere.
Talking about the most crucial benefit of every architect in Orange County learning design and configuration of floating homes, Tracy said “One of the reasons people prefer floating homes is that it gives them the liberty to easily socialize with their neighbors. No matter how busy they are, most people cherish this connection and want to remain in the good books of their neighbors. So, as an architect, you should focus on creating floating homes that give off the old community like feelings and help people connect easily.”
Sharing another benefit of learning design and configuration of floating homes, Tracy said “You as an architect in Orange County should always keep up with the kind of lives people want to live and where they want to live it. For instance, now the concept of floating homes is getting quite popular because it lets people stay close to nature. More and more people prefer to live in a place where they can breathe fresh air, enjoy chirping of birds and even catch fresh fish from a water body.”
Elaborating on another reason why floating homes are such a rage, Tracy said “Most people also have adventurous souls these days, and this compels them to try new things and do stuff that’s never been done before. So, if as an architect in Orange County you have clientele who want something unique, you should let them choose living on a floating home and design one for them.”
Explaining the economic benefit that can be attained by people who live in a floating home, Tracy said “You as an architect in Orange County should know that in some states owning a floating home doesn’t technically constitute owning a real property so, if your clients own one and they live in such a state, they won’t have to pay any associated property taxes and would save money by paying menial personal property charges only. Hence, if you want your clients to have a house of their dreams that doesn’t cost as much and allows them to save on taxes, a floating home is one of the best choices you have.”
Concluding her thoughts on the matter, Tracy said: “Floating homes are getting popular rapidly and soon a day will come that every architect in Orange County or rather the US would have to design one for many of their clients so that the client can add some adventure to his or her life.”
