Floating Teepee by William Woodbridge

By Inthralld on Mar 13, 2013

Surely small residences are the norm for many, but what about floating homes? Or teepee houses? For Australian university student William Woodbridge, all of the above are the norm, thanks to the home that he built for himself—a small, floating teepee house.

Situated on Lake Ginninderra in Australia, this wonderfully designed sits atop a raft that actually floats in the middle of the water. Though it may be a bit unorthodox and seem somewhat unstable, William has noted that the cone-shape structure is solid, and there haven’t been any issues with the weather.

We’re not sure if William is still living in his lake teepee—there was word that he was going to battle a lawsuit, before an elder wrote a reprieve that dictated Woodbridge is "authorised to occupy Lake Ginninderra or any other lake estuary or wetland he may so choose upon to reside as suits his needs in Ngambri Country."
