Hello, there! Today we will talk about elevated house designs and their benefits. If you are living in a flood prone area an elevated house is the best design for you. An elevated house like the one we are featuring today is flood-proof. Raising a house to a considerable height is an old strategy to combat flooding and this is popular throughout the world.
This article states that “elevating or raising the structure above the base flood elevation means the lowest living floor space is above the projected water levels. The base flood elevation (BFE) means that elevation or level has a 1 percent chance of being equal to or exceeded by floodwaters in any year.”
This bungalow is elevated to 8-10 steps higher than the so-called base flood elevation.
The staircase is perhaps the first thing that you can notice upon the sight of this design. They are prominent because they are long and they are installed with attractive banisters. The balcony enclosed with balusters added to this attraction.
It has three bedrooms, two toilets and baths, a spacious living room and dining, a kitchen, a very spacious balcony and a space that can be made into a wash area or a storage.
