The purpose is to create a house  for 2-4 people when visiting this mountains.The house was used lightweight materials such as steel box, wood, glass, lightweight concrete, clay stone, ... Forest house has tried to reduce the load of the house, thereby reducing the structure of the foundation. Not too much natural impact.
