House-nail - a neologism that came from the Chinese language. House nails as a mass phenomenon appeared in China during the chaotic building large cities.
Usually, home-nails were once part of the quarter, which was demolished. Sometimes in the construction of new buildings, roads and even runways hosts some fundamentally refuse to leave their homes, and as a result their houses are preserved, sometimes for several years, but strongly stamped on the background of the surrounding architecture.
Meanwhile, the nails at home has become a symbol of a powerful resistance to the fastest growing economy in the world.
The phenomenon of home-nail, we have hard to find. Yet in China, there is an incredible respect for property.
For example, home-nail in Anhui Province, China (picture dated February 2, 2010). The owner would like to receive more compensation before agreeing to the demolition of their buildings.
This owner even refused to sell a piece of land to builders, as a result of the excavation dug around and found himself the owner of the building on its own island. Chongqing, China, March 22, 2007.
