KEY WORD :@architecture / folk dwellings

The upper roof erected over storehouses, kura ‘q, of the *dozou “y‘  type. In rural districts where tile was unobtainable, the okiyane provided a weatherproof canopy for the fireproof storehouse. The shallowly pitched lower roof of the storehouse, covered with mud daub *tsuchikabe “y•Ç, and plaster finish *shikkui Ž½‹ò, formed the the base upon which the independent structure of the okiyane was erected. The frame was usually a combination of vertical roof struts koyatsuka ¬‰®‘©, purlins *keta Œ…, and rafters *taruki ‚–Ø. The roofing material was either thatch *kayabuki Š•˜, or shingles *itabuki ”•˜. In this way the vulnerable plaster was protected from rain.
