If you checked out Water House from the GRC, you could see that there are various ways to keep your water house afloat.  The seemingly cheapest way is to build your home on a concrete pontoon, instead of drilling foundations underwater.  Solent Marine is a manufacturer that does modular systems, but has also done specialist work for homes.  Apparently they have just developed a pontoon system that glows in the dark, so you never lose you footing.  Aquabase Construction, a UK-based design and manufacturing company, has done a lot of work for floating homes, using concrete pontoons and floating ferro-cement structures.  One of their larger structures is a five-bedroom home on the River Thames.
