So, we led the maximum package from the decided law, and inserted the volume like a large tree in that. In this house, people live while climbing up and down the large tree on inside , come and go in the places like the cave in the trunk and like the terrace that extends to surroundings of the trunk. That is just like that small animals in the forest live while freely coming and going in the lair in the trunk and the surroundings.

The lifestyle is not a past lifestyle only moving from the room to the room by the necessity but suitable for animals instinct of human beings because the family can pick out comfortable whereabouts and the sense of distance according to the act , the bystander person, the season and time.
