In a special edition of George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, the architect follows his friend, eco-designer Max McMurdo, as he works on his own project. Having sold his house, he plans to use the £50,000 profit to build a custom-designed floating home in a 40ft shipping container, mooring it in a local marina and beginning a new life on the water. As well as following Max's progress, George gets a taste for the lifestyle, visiting a cutting-edge wraparound glass house near Canary Wharf in London's Docklands and travelling to Denmark, a nation responsible for some of the most ingenious floating homes in Europe.
