Countries like the Philippines and other countries that are often visited by typhoons that cause flood and other related disasters need to deal with this disadvantage when building their houses. One very effective solution to floods is elevating your house to at least 50 centimeters to a meter or even higher, depending on the height the flood can take. You can elevate your house to a certain degree that still looks pleasing like this house here that we are sharing with you today.
This house is raised 6 steps higher from the ground. If one step is equivalent to 20 centimeters, that would make the house higher for 120 centimeters or 47 inches, about half a meter. This is a good elevation. Just make sure that the flood water does not reach your flooring when it happens.
