while i was watching the discovery channel the other day, they had a segment on the dykes and levees used in your country. however, they showed some housing developments that are being built...on the water.

these new homes are built on a large platform of styrofoam, then the actual house is built....right on the water. they are allowed to rise and lower with tides or storm waters, and are guided by two large poles.

do these really work?

are they expensive to build?

do people like living in them?

i thought that was a rather unique idea and a brilliant one to solve a problem.

Hi Mga,

I havend seen this program, allthough i watch discovery a lot...
But it is really true, they are building on water, what the costs are,
well, i dont know but i quess you can get information on a website,
here in Holland.
I can lookup a site for you, and yes it's a really great idea,
aspecially for the country's who have to do with rising water levels,
as is in our country, normal in the time of februari.

I found this...

It's nice to see that people like you, are interested in our country.
As much as i am in yours...
I wish i had alot of money so i could come to your country for a while.

If you want to write to me, to chit chat, lol ...you can also write to my emailadres...

Sandra.
