Spanish term or phrase: Casa de tres o cuatro brazos
A description of an indigenous house made from penca trees: "una casa de tres o cuatro brazos"
I don't understand "brazos" in this context. Could it refer to rooms? Legs? (the houses are often raised with posts.)
Thanks.

Explanation:
Brazo m. Rama de árbol. DRAE

Brazo is another word for branch. I am not sure there is such a thing as a penca tree. Pencas usually refer to the fronds of a palm tree.
