避世的小村落 – 秤锤坑
Chengchuikeng – a village escaped from the world
从镜岭十九峰高速口下来，沿着蜿蜒曲折的Y030乡道，依次路过横坞、踏雪、门岩、洞坑村，最终抵达山坳坳的尽头 — 秤锤坑村，这里零散居住着几户农家，日出而作日落而息，僻静而安宁。有一辆小货车定期开进山里，将码得整整齐齐的瓜果蔬菜送给村民选购，其余时间这里便是避世的桃源，群山峻岭，茶园农耕，郁郁葱葱的植被，倾泻而下的瀑布，保留着原生态，不受外界干扰。
From the highway exit of Jingling 19 Peak, driving along the winding Y030 road, pass Hengwu, Taxue, Menyan, Dongkeng village in turn, and finally arrives at the end of the col — Chengchuikeng Village, where a few families live scattered, working at sunrise and resting at sunset, secluded and peaceful. A pickup truck will go into the mountain regularly, bringing the yard of fruits and vegetables for villagers to buy, the rest of the time here is a Xanadu, mountains, tea farming, lush vegetation, cascading waterfalls, retain the original ecology, far away from the outside interference.

踏雪九里 – 展哥心中的理想国
Taxu Jiuli – an Upotia of Mr. Zhan
Mr. Zhan, a native of Jingling, Shaoxing, has always been looking forward to a pure mountain life. In 2015, he met Chengchukeng, an original ecological village, rented immediately but did not start construction. In recent years, as getting older, he hopes to focus his limited time and energy on his inner ideals and the companionship of family. At the beginning of 2021, after six years of repeated thinking and precipitation, Mr. Zhan started to launch the homestay project.

The homestay is named Taxue Jiuli after the natural village called “Taxue” before entering Chengchuikeng village, and from Taxue to Chengchuikeng is just right nine Li（Chinese measurement, 1 Li=500 meter). In the snow flying winter, dusty guests walk along the mountain road, the heat comes out from the mouth condensing into white fog in the air, romantic and beautiful. Mr. Zhan has concentrated all his expectation in Taxue Jiuli. He quit his job after the project started, sold his house in city after the first phase has been completed and moved his family to Taxue. Now, Taxue is their real home.

leave more space to the spiritual pursuit
The Taxue Jiuli project covers an area of about 2,000 square meters and consists of six rammed earth houses of different sizes. In combination with Mr. Zhan’s years of exploring the ideal life, the design does not aim to “maximize the number of rooms”. After the clear need for 8 rooms, more space is left for spiritual demands, such as social public area, book bar, cafe, tea space, outdoor pool, camp, tea garden, orchard, etc., so that guests can not only meet the need for sleep, it is also an experience of rural life style.

Enjoy the cool under the porch
When we go to the country, we like to sit in the yard. In the design, eaves were added above the foyer on the first floor to provide shelter from the wind and rain. On a fine day, it is easy to sit here in a chair, staring into space, reading and chatting with the mountain wind blowing through the porch.

The sparrow may be small but fully-equipped
The first phase of Taxue which is currently opening is small in volume but fully functioned, with 3 guest rooms +1 public activity area, including living room, dining room and book bar. There is also a 6 m x10 m swimming pool outside the door, with water from natural mountain streams. In the center of the hall is the rest area. The fireplace wall made of raw stone is awkward and beautiful, the Noguchi Yomiball ball lamp from across the sea is hanging in the middle, which is matched with the sofa of George Nakajima. Those who understand will understand, and those who love is already loving. In the evening, light the fire, sit into the couch, the world and the mind are so peaceful.

In line with the principle of not destroying the original appearance of the village, the original rammed earth walls and wooden walkways were retained in the reconstruction of the building. In order to make each floor possessing a more comfortable height, we dug down 20 centimeters under the ground for the first floor; For the second floor, on the premise of keeping the height of the top of the original building unchanged, the roof is extended and opened, and the eaves are lifted 60 cm up, thus improves the overall height of the second floor and the increased space under the eaves complements the balcony of each guest room. This operation not only improves the lack of low space of the original house, but also expands the use space of the guest room. At the same time, lighting windows has been added on the raised wall, making the whole room more bright and comfortable.

A corner staircase, passing by an old latticed window, leads up to the second floor, where there are three guest rooms. Each room retains as much as possible the original rammed earth walls of the old house and the wooden beams and columns made in ancient ways, and secretly adds a skylight at the top to increase the light. Time flowing traces distributes in the humble space slowly.

One hero and three gangs – Mr. Hui’s construction group
有了好的业主，好的设计，还需要有好的施工队将其呈现，在此我们必须隆重提及踏雪的施工团队 — 晖哥及其小伙伴们。晖哥，台州临海草宿的民宿主，在自己I期、II期及III期的古村老屋改造中积累了丰富的经验，结合自身多年民宿运营经验，以及对审美、工艺的不懈追求，第一次带着自己的施工团队走出草宿，在踏雪九里毫无保留地分享。每一处细节，每一道工艺，在尽可能追求完美的方向上不断打磨，最终呈现出令业主方、设计方和自己都颇为满意的作品，相互成就。（关于晖哥和草宿）
With a good owner, a good design, a piece of good work also needs a good construction team to present, here we must mention the outstanding construction team of Taxue – Mr. Hui and his partners. Mr. Hui, the resident host of Caoshu in Linhai Taizhou, has accumulated rich experience in the reconstruction of old houses in ancient villages of phase I, II and III. Combined with his years of experience in home stay operation, as well as his unremitting pursuit of aesthetics and craftsmanship, he took his construction team out of Caoshu for the first time and shared it without reservation in Taxue. Every detail and every process is constantly polished in the direction of pursuing perfection as far as possible, and finally presents a work that satisfies the owner, the designer and himself, and achieves mutual achievement. (About Mr. Hui and Caosu)

To a secluded mountain village
Reading books, drinking tea, climbing mountains, staring blankly
Watching the sun rise in the east and set in the west
Watching the twilight descending slowly
There was a bonfire in the fireplace
Go inside, find the heart to settle yourself
You’ll meet Mr. Zhan and his family there
