The "Kringenwet" is a Dutch law from 1814, revised in 1853. The purpose of the law was to keep the field of fire around fortifications free. Demolition, construction, harvesting and planting within the Forbidden Circles was regulated in this law.

This so-called "Kringenwetwoning" from 1914 had to meet certain building requirements because of the "Kringenwet" (1853-1963). Because the house was built within a radius of 500 to 600 meters from Fort Nekkerweg, a stone foundation was allowed to be placed with a wooden structure on top.
