Based on understanding the current situation of rural houses, we propose a new way of building rural houses which are environment friendly and correspond to modernization and urbanization. The prefabricated house with the functions of renewable energy use, effective energy use, and sustainability can be a solution to problems that the existing rural houses have had in China. For reducing construction waste, the prefabricated house can use recycled materials from construction sites. For using renewable energy, the solar water heater is proposed to be included in the design of the houses. For large temperature variations in seasons, appropriate design of façade, planting on buildings, and sunshades need to be installed with the harmonization of the house design. The development of modern technologies needs to be reflected in the design of new rural houses in various design elements as the proposed prefabricated house. The new design helps farmers improve their quality of living, recognize environmental problems, and finally adopt new measures for saving energy and environmental protection. The new design of rural houses is expected to promote the sustainable development of the rural community.
