The sample building
||The virtual model kit included on the CD-ROM contains all the parts
you need to build a small sample building. (See illustration.) Using the
parameters listed on the previous page, we can describe the sample building
This building is the smallest and simplest ting tang allowed - it uses the fewest components - and is given as an example in the Yingzao fashi (juan 31).
The instructions we set out here are only a set of all those in the Yingzao fashi. We give only those that are applicable to our sample building.
For a list of the 19 allowable variations, see Chen (1981, 108-109).
