Nowadays, there are still some houses that is rebuilt in modern materials but retain the traditional architecture style.
The main house is also known as the sunk house, with every structure but roof below the ground. It is said to keep warm in winter and cool in summer, moreover, the most  important function is to avoid the attack of typhoons. The veranda above ground is not only a place for resting but also functions to shelter the main house from rain and wind.
