While few people would consider building a home in a hot air balloon today, sky high living is a speculative idea for future homes and communities. Aerostats are a futuristic concept that combines floating through the skies in a giant balloon with levels for living, working, and growing food. They would travel across the globe on the winds that blow high in the sky, and their residents would enjoy a beautiful view whenever they took the time to look out the window.
It might seem impossible to build an entire community that can float through the air, but the concept today is one that could be realized. Many of the building techniques are already known, so the largest stopping block is finding enough people interested in investing. It would take a large group of people willing to live in an experimental environment to make this dream come true, but at least they would not have to worry about finding a lot for sale on the ground.
