The Minahasa House is originally from the North Sulawesi Province of Indonesia. It is recognized in Indonesia as one of the best earthquake resistant home construction suitable for tropical region. The Minahasa house is mostly made of cempaka, lingua and jati (tectona grandis) woods. There are no architects or a software involved to design and construct these traditional wooden houses. In fact, these houses are built by craftsman whose skills are passed on generation to generation by families and each generation tend to improve both materials and construction.
