Model of stilt houses

Description: Stilt houses are raised on stilts over soil or a body of water. These houses in Thailand are made of bamboo with harp angled roofs and wooden floorboards. The ceiling is typically high to provide good ventilation. The mattress would be laid on the floor rather than on a bed. Original houses can be found along the beaches in Thailand, as well as other water sources.
