look, it’s a flying house

Let’s prove a house can fly. With engineering and extraordinary lifting power, we have proof of floated and craned houses. Enjoy the possibilities!

Floated Houses:  After Pixar’s Up! movie, we all wanted our little homes to soar and here’s evidence that balloons work. However suspending a home with some wires will need additional study.

Craned Houses: Much more common, prefab homes get delivered by truck and then take short flights. These modules are raised by monster cranes and carefully placed on properties.
