Bamboo sheds is unique to Guangdong Province. According to Wikipedia, bamboo sheds has been in Hong Kong since 1920. The characteristics are: fast, light and cheap. In the 1970s and 1980s, when Hong Kong’s economic development took off, bamboo sheds contributed to Hong Kong’s efforts. The bamboo shed masters carried out repairs and maintenance and building demolition work in a dangerous place for the future merger of Hong Kong. Steel pipes are used to replace bamboos. I believe that in the near future there will be no use of bamboo to build sheds.
