Stilt Houses — 3 Comments

  1. These types of dwellings have a specific use for areas prone to flooding, but I’m very leery of relying on stilts and piling foundations at any height sufficient enough to provide headroom for work or recreational space underneath. I’d rather just live somewhere that doesn’t flood so much. ;-]

    • Actually, countless houses like this are built in non-flood areas such as this one. Many are built with recycled wood, which is less than concrete. Many people love the homey feel and want to capture the breezes and views. This one is next to a Buddhist temple. The space underneath is used for parking cars and motorcycles, socializing, outdoor cooking, pets, storage, laundry, etc. They’re very practical.
