It looked high on the drawings but in real life it's a tower! The block slopes about 2 metres across a 50 metre depth, which isn't too sharp, but still enough that at the end of the 22 metre house the upper floor looks enormously high.
The bottom half of the house was cut out to reduce floor space to keep the building within budget. It saved about $27K. Later down the track, when I have the funds, I would like to reinstate that so there's some additional living space downstairs.
