The house is built on a plot of agricultural origin with expansive clay, so the foundations are pulled back under a cantilevered slab of 1.5 meters to protect them. A system of pillars of laminated wood with a width of 56 x 13 cm is placed onto the reinforced concrete slab, arranged in opposite directions, braces and supports the large laminated wood beams of 1 meter high and 30 meters long.
