I don't imagine the part of "the rest of it ~~~~~by long metal stilts that looked like spider legs..

 

The Baudelaires took a look. At first, the three youngsters saw only a small boxy square with a peeling white door, and it looked as if the house was scarcely bigger than the taxi which had taken them to it. But as they piled out of the car and drew closer, they saw that this small square was the only part of the house that was on top of the hill. "The rest of it-a large pile of boxy squares, all stuck together like ice cubes-hung over the side, attached to the hill by long metal stilts that looked like spider legs." As the three orphans peered down at their new home, it seemed as if the entire house were holding on to the hill for dear life.

I don't imagine the part of "the rest of it ~~~~~by long metal stilts that looked like spider legs.." Can you explain it to me in another way?

    Only one small part of the house rests on the ground on the top of the hill. The remaining part of the house extends out into the air over the side of the hill, and long metal stilts reach from the ground at the lower part of the hill to the base of the part of the house that extends out.
