description  
Based on traditional raised bayou cottages and fishing camps, the ‘Lift House’ is developed as a model for elevated houses for Gulf Coast recovery. The design makes use of simple construction practices and can be built with extensive volunteer, non-professional support. After construction on the ground level, the house is raised onto pilings. The Lift House is a key part of the broader SIGUS program ‘Sustainable Housing on the Bayous’.
