I’m so in love with this Khmer traditional wooden house (see picture). A traditional Khmer house is typically built on stilts, about 2-3ms above the ground.

When my husband and I finally decide to settle, our dream house will definitely bear some features of a Khmer house – an external staircase that leads up to the living area, with wooden beams and shutters, and a wrap-around balcony. The ground area serve will also serve as the parking space or a recreation place; it can also serve as a resting area (hang our hammocks and doze off to lala-land!), or, can be a dirty kitchen.
