MiYiSuo 202: Seaweed House in Rongcheng, Weihai City, Shandong, China
董欣儿/ DONG Xiner
Seaweed house is a kind of original ecological seafood folk house in Jiaodong Peninsula.
It looks brown and earthy. It has stone walls and roof made of dried seaweed.
It is very solid and durable, warm in winter and cool in summer.
The skill of making seaweed houses has been listed in the provincial "intangible cultural heritage" list.
There are still many fairy-tale like seaweed houses on Jiming island.
It's worth staying there one night when you go check the island.
There are rows of seaweed cottage villages in offshore fishing villages,
with piles as sharp as piles, light brown covered with sea green color.
Houses here are simple and filled with the thick smell of sea water.
Enjoying a seafood hotpot with friends,
or walking along the wet road and furry house is definitely a good way
to live comfortably by this clean coast just like local people do.
