    Default Could you live here?

    I know it not the best pic but could you live here?

    Just driving past it make me shiver. I couldn't even step one foot on in there...

    Mmmm i'd always be worried my house was going to crash. Though I'd rather be in that house than the one under it!

    I hope a lot of money and effort has gone into those footings! Personally I couldn't live in a house like this. I'd be questioning if it could withstand an earthquake, strong winds and heavy rain washing away anything under the footings.

    If it were in LA or Japan or near a fault line, then no, I couldn't , but what a talking piece that house would be!

    It less than a 1 km from the sea in a tropical cyclone area.

    I would be frightened of falling through the floorboards.

    Eeeek! Cyclones are scary at the best of times, let alone when you're house is built like that. I am sure they've built it with cyclones/inclement weather in mind, but .

    Just above from memory. I don't drive up that street very often.
