‘The mission was to design a habitable dwelling with the latest marine composite technology, providing creature comforts with low impact on the land and high amazement factor,’ he said.
‘It is waterproof, airtight (but with air to air heat exchanger ventilation) resistant to vermin, mold and insects.
It needs no roofing nor siding.
Kurt applied his thirty years experience as a boat designer to create the property, which as ‘virtually no environmental footprint’.
He said: ‘These off-the-grid outposts will use the latest marine technology to afford a strong, light, and easily maintained the structure.
