KEY WORD :@architecture / folk dwellings

A method of construction that employed long substantial beams called *chounabari çá—À to support the main transverse beams *jouyabari ã‰®—À, without the main frame posts *jouyabashira ã‰®’Œ. The chounabari are straight at one end and sharply curved at the other. The beam style derives its name from the beam's resemblance to an adze *chouna çá. This construction system is particularly associated with thatched vernacular houses *minka –¯‰Æ, in the Hida ”ò‘Ë district of Gifu prefecture and in Toyama prefecture, and with steep A-frame *gasshou-zukuri ‡¶‘¢ houses. It became increasing popular in the latter half of the Edo period.
