More often, houses are designed with all sides in line with each other. Seldom would you see a house that has a protruding side that seemingly floats on air. Well, the mere thought of it might look funny but when you get to see houses like this, you will surely be amazed and you might even want to get a house with a design like this. You call these as cantilevered houses. When we say cantilever, it refers to a rigid structure that extends horizontally being supported by a vertical structure. In the case of a house, it would be a floor beam supported by columns. But if the house design is unique, there would be more structural analysis to work on to make sure that the entire structure won’t collapse. Look at the cantilevered house designs below and for sure, you will be amazed at how the designers worked on it with intelligence. Coronet Grove Residence
