The idea of nomadic living is something that has been done for thousands of years throughout history, this way of life in which people that do not settle down and move periodically. Unlike that of migration, nomadic living involves a total change of habitat and often when adopting the nomadic lifestyle, it calls for having a limited amount to own and carry as the more stuff means less space in a fixed vessel. Amphibious living refers to the idea of having a house or structure that rests on the ground but has the ability to rise in the case of flooding. This thesis is the meshing of nomadic and amphibious living, the idea of having a completely versatile and portable home that can travel by land and water while still providing adequate space and the potential to go just about anywhere.
