  1. I looked at some cheap property in the flood plane once. I thought
    of building something like this on a ferrocement barge. I would
    put strong pilings in so that if could float up as high as necessary.
    You would have to have a fence or something so it wouldn’t settle on
    debris. You would need to use a composting toilet or budget for regular
    sewage pump-outs if the land didn’t perk well.
