What a house built on permafrost may look like

Alaska Forum - Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
Those who want to know what happens a few years later to some homes built on permafrost would want to read the article below. It was published on the Fairbanks News Miner today, and is quite interesting:

Fairbanks Daily News-Miner - Permafrost’s future in Alaska looks poor but the forecast isn’t all bad

Now, keep in mind that I haven't posted the link to start arguments about "predictions" relating to permafrost, temperature warming predictions, and so forth. The photo shows a home that was built on permafrost, which has nothing to do with global or local warming and such. Years ago, specially in the interior of Alaska, some people bought land and then built their homes without realizing that they had built on permafrost. Nowadays one can have an engineer inspect the land or test the ground, as well as to look at the data available to the public relating to lands which contain layers of permafrost.
