Finland's first floating village is under construction in Pori, a small city on the country's west coast. The floating villas are very cool looking, have energy-saving technologies, and were designed to handle the occasionally extreme local weather. Sixteen such houses will be built when the project is complete. After Grist List moves into three of them, that leaves 13 for the rest of you.
