This genius construction idea will make you regret cutting down trees to build your home

You have desperately wanted to build a porch/verandah outside your house, but that old tree sitting on your spot of interest has been hindering you from having this sophisticated homestead appeal.

  • Unlicensed cutting down of trees is illegal in the country.
  • There is also the issue of space limitation, where a huge tree may be occupying a lot of space in your compound.
  • You don’t want to go back on your environmental police role or intrude into your neighbour’s compound.

Relax: You can still get your desired exterior porch at the exact desired spot.

Building around trees instead of cutting them down is a concept that has for long been a secret of Western architecture. The concept seeks to incorporate components of nature in construction instead of destroying them. It entails bringing up structures at points where trees are rooted such that the trees appear to go right through the structures.

The result is a creative, sophisticated and environmental friendly design which will leave people throwing second glances at your homestead, wondering whether the structure is on top of the tree or whether the tree is actually going through the porch.

The biggest advantage of this design is that it incorporates a little taste of every generation including the traditional, colonial and modern eras.
