“Bauhaus is a British build groundbreaking electrically powered cruising houseboat, combining sophisticated insulation with the most up to date, well proven energy producing devices and energy saving appliances.” And now you can read all about it, and even relish in a video of the Bauhaus created by the vessels own creators.
There has been a lot made of this boat/barge/vessel/flat/house — people wanting to know how it was made and how they could make their own.
Well, the vessels creators heard your cry and have provided a massive blog post explaining “Was ist das?”
The boat is fully solar powered using a “1.7kw PV system which provides you in the current setup in central London with enough energy to cruise or live pretty much carbon neutrally throughout the year.”
Apparently the Bauhaus is currently up for sale — originally built in the Netherlands it has since been moved to London. If you want to know anything about the vessel, or in fact, if you want to know everything about the vessel, check out the website.
