Taitung House facades

After spending a few days in Taitung I started to notice some interesting facades on some of the older houses, both in Taitung and surrounding villages. They were all two or three floor houses and I'm guessing they were built in the 1960's or 1970's. Generally the architecture in Taiwan is really ugly, alot of unrendered concrete and bland tiles, sometimes the reinforcing steel is left sticking out the sides. In the past I've only really been impressed by some of the old Japanese era buildings, but it's nice to see that somebody was putting a bit of thought into the external appearance of houses back in the '60's too.

Note the reinforcing steel still protruding from the side of the house! And the later addition of the "tin shed" top floor.
