Today, we are focusing more and more of our efforts on enhancing the rural living environment. Some rural dwellings in northern Henan Province have problems such as poor ventilation, poor lighting and poor insulation, and the living environment of villagers needs to be improved. In this paper, from the current situation of rural dwellings in northern Henan, through field research and data collection, some problems of rural dwellings, as well as the necessity and urgency of suitable renovation are explained, and the current situation is analysed, and finally suggestions and measures for suitable renovation using building technology are put forward.
