This "Colorful Front Door of Tibetan Home" image shows the incredible way houses are built and painted in Lhasa, Tibet. These houses are made of soil, stone, and wood in Lhasa, Shigatse, and even Chamdo. These houses are often called "Tibetan Stone Houses." Most houses in Lhasa have two or three layers and are built in the form of an inner court corridor. At one corner of the courtyard, there is a well and a toilet. Around the city, most of the bungalows were built by craftsmen, artists, and farmers who lived there. People who live in rural Shannan like to be outside, so they often set up an open living space on the veranda. This is very typical of the area.

For many rural residents, the design of the living room, kitchen, storage, and garden, as well as the layout of the barn, pigsties, and toilet, make sense in terms of how they work. Some houses made good use of the slope of the land by building the lower level as the cancha and the upper level as a patio or living space. Making sure the animals don't bother people and improves health conditions.
