    Modularity
    A romantic gateway for two or a mobile house in the middle of a lake for the entire family or a group of friends, with a fixed width of 6 meters and lengths ranging from 10 to 18 meters, the possibilities are almost endless. Whether you want a cozy studio or a fully furnished three-bedroom house with two bathrooms, the freedom of nature is on your doorstep.
