Anodising Aluminium for a Strong Houseboat and Gratifying Canal Living
Great Britain’s network of canals and waterways is home to at least 15,000 people. Owing to housing shortages and soaring prices in recent years, canal living has become an increasingly popular alternative to inland housing. In fact, a Self-build.co.uk article published a few years back says the continuous demand for floating homes has led British Waterways (the government body previously tasked to care for rivers and canals in Great Britain) to forecast the need for 11,000 more moorings until 2018. In England, the city of Birmingham, with its share of canals and rivers, is a favourite spot for houseboats.
