Raising the house is a permanent solution rather than a technological solution, but it alters the entirety of parcel one (the original property owned by Dr. Farnsworth) since a tremendous amount of dirt would be added to create a natural slope. While the distance between the house and the river would not change, the house would be higher and the viewer would look down towards the river rather than being at the same level as the water. Almost all of the trees would be lost in this scheme.
