The Philippines has the worst typhoons in the world, which means that we’re also prone to flooding that can cost millions of damage costs.

One Filipino architect embraced that reality and installed a floating garage in a Filipino home. The photos you see speaks for itself.

Principal Architect Jason Buensalido said that the special carport was designed like a raft. This will allow the car to float in place instead of drowning and be ruined forever in case of flooding.

This special floating device was installed in the Marikina home of owners Philip and Malee, who shared a photo of their car safe and floating during the recent Typhoon Ulysses.

That’s a pretty clever, and possibly complex way of saving a car from floods. If you want something more practical and jerry-rigged, you can check how this resident from Cainta saved his Mitsubishi Expander from a Typhoon Ulysses flood using a tarp as a floating device.
