Arkup introduces Self-elevating Luxury floating home concept

Arkup, a Florida-based company has introduced the concept of house floating on water. It’s off-grid, liveable luxury yacht, powered by 30 KW of solar and twin electric thrusters. These high-class ultra modern double decker units are equipped with hydraulic legs that have capability of stabilizing and lifting them out of water.

Arkup floating home

Floating houses are popular ways of living in some parts of the world,” reads the Arkup press release, “in particular the Netherlands, US West Coast cities and South-East Asia.” I can’t say I’ve visited the first two examples, but I’ve spent some time in the latter, and it seems a little tasteless to compare the humble bamboo houseboats of Cambodia to the floating luxury apartments these guys are selling.

the hydraulic system installed in this self-contained, electric, double decker houseboat can put down its legs up to 20 feet down in the water to elevate itself out from the water swells. A liveable yacht that won’t make anyone seasick, and that harvests its own rainwater from a roof that doubles as a 30-kilowatt solar array, feeding up to 1,000 kilowatt-hours worth of lithium batteries onboard.

The luxury self-elevating floating home get its built-in communication suite, with 4G, Satellite TV, Wi-Fi and VHF radio. Its twin 136 HP electric azimuth thrusters can rotate it to 360 degrees to manoeuvre about the place or chug along at a sedate 7 knot top speed. The deck retracts when you’re on the move, there’s a boat lift to get your tender out of the water, and the sun deck can be fully immersed in water to become a protected sea-pool.

Arkup sees it as a future-proof luxury gateway that can be parked at a marina or anchor in a river or lake to enjoy scenic view without fearing from high rise of sea level. Even its ready to withstand the 155 mph winds of a category 4 hurricane as you think something after recent events.

The interior measures 4350 sq ft with sleek  design, modern looking and high end. It can be customized to make a home, a vacation home, an event venue, a restaurant, a gym, a day spa or whatever you can build a business case for.

That might be where this kind of design shines, as a kind of aquatic, self-contained pop-up business. You’d have to charge like a wounded bull to recoup your costs, though, assuming this “liveable yacht” is as expensive as it looks.

Wine Cork Candles Do-it-Yourself (DIY)

Hello fellas, I have come up with yet another interesting DIY idea, which trust me, would lighten up your and yours partner mood. I have wine cork candles idea for you. If you are a wine lover, then it’s time to save the corks of your wine bottles. This is the simplest yet elegant idea to add a romantic and an artistic look.

Wine cork candles only require two basic steps and a few things. It’s time to add a creative and warm look to winters coupled with all those blossomy flowers bouquets.

Things you need for DIY Wine Cork Candles

There are few things that you need at hand to make this exquisitely looking DIY wine cork candles, indeed one of the best DIY ideas I have worked on so far. Here are the things that you would need:

  • Wine Corks (Finish your wine and collect the corks)

 

  • Matchsticks

 

 

  • Small glassed mason jars or small vodka glasses

 

  • Acetone Alcohol

 

 

DIY Wine Cork Candles Method

Once you have collected a bunch of wine corks, it’s time to soak them into acetone alcohol. Make sure to keep them soaked at least for a week. This will help the corks to absorb all the acetone alcohol which will allow them to burn for hours and serves as a candle.

After a week, you are ready to use them wherever and whenever you want. Put these soaked wine corks into the glassed mason jars and lit them up. Spark up the mood of your room’s ambiance or use them in candle light dinners. Happy DIY ideas!

 

I would love to see DIY wine cork candles made by you share the pictures with me, once done!
