The structure and function of the earth building fully meet the needs of the small-scale peasant economy. The water well, kitchen, storage, bedroom, grain processing room, firewood room, pig and cattle house, toilet and other facilities are all available. The family members enjoy the joy of reunion in the family and family for several generations while they are guaranteed a basic living.
Such as the rise is located in Longyan City, Yongding District, Hukeng Town Hongkeng Tulou Folk Culture Village, a small stream, is the smallest of the many Tulou in the village, built in 1901, high 3 floors, because of the small building, known as "small Tulou."
The host, Lin Gaolin, originally lacked housing, and later got a dream: a round of red sun fell here. He thought it was a good place to build a house, so he did everything possible to raise funds, and it took three years to build the smallest round building by himself. The name "Rushenglou" has a deeper meaning-as the sun rises in the east, it is bright forever
The meaning of the earth building here is quite good. According to today's cost, it costs tens of millions. It is warm in winter and cool in summer. Unfortunately, there is no toilet. I can't see the chimney, and my neighbors are very close to each other.
Rushenglou is affectionately known as the "pocket earth building". It is said in "Big Fish and Begonia": After death, the body will turn into mud and the soul will swim to the northernmost Rushenglou and then turn into a small fish. As the name suggests, the uplift is like the Hakka people’s old rice measuring device "Mi Sheng" made of bamboo tubes. It has a single-circle structure with a ceiling diameter of only 8 meters. From the Fuyu Building on the other side of the river, you can see this unattractive appearance. Pocket building. It is said that the original poster Lin Gaolin lacked housing, but later got a dream: a red sun fell here. He thought it was a good place to build a house, so he did everything possible to raise funds. It took three years to build the smallest round building by himself. The indoor patio is round, the inner edge of the roof tile surface is in the shape of a gossip, and the outer edge is round.
I'm used to seeing all kinds of huge earth buildings, and then seeing the small ones, such as rising buildings, of course I find it particularly interesting. For example, the ascending building is small, as small as a single ring structure. The perimeter of the building is only 56.6 meters and the diameter is 18.2 meters. There is only a circular patio in the middle of the building, and many earth buildings are built in the ancestral hall in the middle of the building. In the back hall on the first floor directly opposite. Therefore, Rushenglou is also called "pocket tulou". But in addition to being small, it also has a three-story design like a general earth building. The ground floor is the kitchen and dining room, the second floor is the warehouse, and the third floor is the bedroom.
