Kypiq housing

I have beeing reading in the wiki and I wounder: do Kypiq not carve their homes inside of a tree? Considering how massive these trees are, this would not harm the trees much even if you would carve half a dozen houses in its stamp. This would not only look amazing, but also allow for protection from siege engines and the elements. no storm would devestate a settlement if the houses are part of the trees themselves. I do not see, why it would violate their morals.

I believe the trees are Ironwood, so it is likely that they are very hard to carve.

I think Kypiq structures will be built upon tree branches and possibly around trunks with fallen timber and other non-living plant material. If there are available natural spaces within trunks, perhaps from decay of the internal wood, then those would be used as well. I don't think Kypiqs will make cavities in trees, but they might cut doorways to access pre-existing cavities.

Of course, this is all speculation.

Kypiq homes and buildings are placed upon mushrooms that grow around the tree. This then allows us to have walkways etc in the trees. There is a few pictures showing this.
