We have talked before about the way Brad Pitt has jumped in and helped with rebuilding New Orleans after Katrina but this is worth another mention. This house he has had built now is very cool. Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation showed off the first “permitted” floating house in the United States on Tuesday. Known as the FLOAT House , the structure is built to float as much as 12 feet. It has two masts embedded into the foundation and so the chaise is able to float or rise up and down on those two masts in the event of a flood. The idea is not to make people stay in the threat of another hurricane but to protect their home and belongings so they have something to come back to when it is over.
