What is a Cantilevered Home?
This overhanging effect for a second story is an architectural feature that lets houses appear to defy gravity
A home that is cantilevered means that it overhangs the portion of the structure that supports it. The projection is supported at one end only.
This home has two elements that are cantilevered: the eave over the balcony and the balcony itself.
Cantilevered structures seem to hover, defying gravity.
The part of this home that extends beyond its support is the cantilevered portion.
