If you are living in a place that is often visited by typhoons and is flood prone, the best house for you to build is a house that is elevated 50 centimeters higher than the ground or even higher like one meter above ground level.
This is the remedy that is being done by engineers and architects to places that are flood prone. You can do many things to design your home so that it would still look pleasing despite its elevation. Depending on the height of the floor water, you can elevate your house a little higher than it can reach.
Here is a house that is elevated five steps higher than the ground. The elevation looks proportional with the width and height of the house.
The front area of the house is very spacious. The balcony is spacious enough to accommodate guests and family gatherings. The garage is roomy and it can be used as a dining hall as well.
The wall and post cladding with bricks give the house a classic appeal. The rustic paint and bricks glow with the white accent painted on its trimmings and window frames.
