Homes built on stilts

This is not our home – hope to post pictures of it soon.

INUVIK IS BUILT ON PERMAFROST, WHICH EXTENDS MORE THAN A THOUSAND FEET BELOW THE SURFACE. BECAUSE OF THIS, ALL HOMES AND OFFICES HAVE HAD TO BE BUILT ON STILTS OR PILES, TO PREVENT THE BUILDINGS FROM SINKING OR SLIPPING.
