Zuwu: Home of generations
By Ding Qian

Zuwu, an old house rebuilt in 1819, is located in Songpan County, Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, SW China's Sichuan Province. The county is 2,850 meters above sea level. Ten people of three generations live in the house. It's the only surviving wood-structured dwelling in the Ming and Qing dynasties' style in Songpan County. 

Let's take a took at this beautiful old house with Mai Tianyin, a member of the seventh generation of the family.
