The kitchen and slave house are made of cotton wood and hold the various elements together according to the ancient technique of carving. The roof is tall, the tile is burnt, the screen is carved and the wind is molded. There are curved doors used as a way down to the water. The house features parallel walls along the axis of the streets along the houses of China and the Pining River.

Included in the ancient technique, the carved roofs are tall, the soil tile mosquitoes are decorated with western wood patterns, ranging from the cutting machine to the windscreen, the ventilation channels and the barracks, as well as the assumption that the curved walls under the man have some similarities in common to the contemporary English architecture in the country.

The elements of the building are made of wood from the roots, poles, wall floor, doors, windows, and housing elements. They are combined according to the traditional technique of carving. The appearance of the front of the street is that the Chinese houses are a commercial part. People meet, therefore, the doors are fuzzy. They can be opened all the way to trade and closed at night. There are bars for sale. Most of the floors are lifted from the stairs. The house owners can sit and sleep.

The researcher used the information obtained from the study to create models of all 5 houses in the ratio of 1:125 with details close to the real ones.

2) Based on the analysis of consumer behavior, we have designed a Chinese community logo, one pattern, five fold-up panels, five models of souvenirs.
