Every local area has its own style of building but I wanted a more in depth look at this phenomenon.  For example if you live in a wet marshy area then you will build your houses on stilts but that doesn't mean the rest of the house has to built the same as other people's houses.  But people do make houses look very similar to everyone else's within a local area.



It is imaginable that the local house builders were all apprenticed under the same system of building (in this case the Siheyuan/Hutong style) and depending on the economics of the family the size of the enclosures are just scaled up or down.
