On stilts, maybe. With stilts...sounds like a circus act.

nooo...I'd be afraid the house would fall..

sure, why not? A house isn't built now without a permit. The permit is only obtained if a house is deemed safe to build. Plus, in the north, where there is tundra, houses HAVE to be built on stilts. Reason being that the heat from a house sitting on the ground would cause the surrounding earth to thaw and the house would start to sink. The stilts allow heat to escape through the bottom and not cause any thawing. Which would you prefer? I would go with the stilts.

I would live somewhere where that isn't a problem

You mean that they walked on Stilts when they were building it? Sure!

it would be just my luck that the stilts would break.

I don't think I would unless I absolutely had to.

No, I would prefer not to.
