Keeping Rường house – Keeping the beauty of ancient village culture 

Along with the support of the province, recently, many ruong houses in the province have been repaired and renovated, contributing to maintaining, beautifying and newering Hue ruong houses system.

Today, tenono the trend of urbanization, not many people have the interest of building ruong house. This is partly because of the large budget of building ruong house, and partly it does not meet the needs of the younger generations who like modern houses. The result is that fewer and fewer ruong houses are built in the countryside. However, in many ancient villages such as Phuoc Tich (Phong Dien) or Thuy Bieu, Thuy Xuan ... (Hue city), many families and clans are still keeping ruong house as a cultural beauty of their families and clans and passing it down to their descendants.

Along with the support of the province, recently, many ruong houses in the province have been repaired and renovated, contributing to maintaining, beautifying and renewing Hue ruong houses system. Thanks to that, the ruong house builders have more jobs and stable income, even though this job requires a certain level of skill, mastery and artistry that not everyone can do.

THUA THIEN HUE WEEKLY would like to present the step-by-step process to build a ruong house through a photo report of Nguyen Khoa Huy.
