David Ballinger, founder of MetroShed, recently emailed us about his latest project: a prefab houseboat.
From the press release (PDF):
The MetroShip represents 7 years of boat design and planning to utilize unique materials for a houseboat application. I wanted to incorporate the manufacturing efficiencies of our pre-fab buildings (MetroShed) into a luxury aluminum hull houseboat product.
.... most houseboats have lots of windows to let light in – but the result is a very poor looking design. We use transulent thermal aluminum walls....

made by sister company, MetroSofa.
