If you’re anything like us, the current state of the world has really made you want to just pack up and move to the middle of nowhere. If you thought isolated farms and cabins in the woods were the best option for post-quarantine living, wait until you see the Arkup Floating House Boats. More livable yacht or moving waterfront villa than traditional house boat, the Arkup is like a stylishly designed, modern Noah’s Ark that you can move anywhere. Arkup has a total of 4,350 sqft of living space divided between indoor and outdoor areas, along with a retractable deck and swim platform, so there’s more than enough room for 8 people to live comfortably. The 100% solar-electric engines give you silent cruising and carbon neutral living, and the rainwater harvesting and purification systems insure self-sustainability. What’s more, it even has four hydraulic pilings to raise it out of the water and turn it into a house. We can’t think of a better way to live off-grid. The first completed Arkup is currently located in Miami and is available for purchase starting at $5.5 million. If that one doesn’t quite meet your needs, Arkup will customize one to your exact specifications, but the price is still going to start at the handful of millions.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
