This is a regular single level house with two important distinctions. First, it is turned 90 degrees, and second, it is attached to a sheer cliff face. All of the furniture is nailed to the floor to prevent it from crashing into the lower wall. Hand and foot holds are conveniently cut into the floor
to climb from room to room. The driveway and parking area are on top of the cliff. Anyone who wishes to "drop in" on this family better have a good aim. As an aside, real estate prices for sheer cliff faces are typically lower than that of the more conventional building sites on flat land.

||Pass the crampons, please...
||The toilets better be horizontal.
||Yep, [Dr], the toilets are horizontal and perched on what appear to be ledges. The showers are vertical, but the drain is against the lower wall. There's a similar setup in the kitchen for those appliances that need to be horizontal. The mountain climbers that will occupy this residence will save a fortune in yard maintenance.
||I think there's a house in New Zealand that comes
close to this idea. It's built from a stack of shipping
containers bolted to a cliff face.
||Alright, [+]. Though I would personally prefer a forty-five

in a non-Euclidean plane?
