The first part of the Buldan rural architecture inventory study was carried out in the vineyards area on the valleys and hills around the urban settlement. In the field study which lasted for eight days, inventory studies were conducted in Akyar, Vakıf, Bulak, Haydar, Kestane Creek and Karadere vineyards. Bag houses located in the hills and valley are located in large areas in these regions which can be reached from the city center on foot. The vineyards in the study are located to the west and south of the city settlement. In this area, region boundaries and bond boundaries cannot be clearly separated from each other; While roads and streams generally form the boundaries of the regions, low walls, streams, embankments or roads define the boundaries of the vineyard in accordance with the natural structure of the land. In the vineyards, which are arranged in sets while preserving the natural slope of the land, there are vineyards covering large areas as well as various fruit trees.

The vineyard houses of the Vakıf area, located in the valley to the northwest of the central settlement of Buldan, were built with simple and not very careful wood and masonry masonry construction techniques and have a view that integrates with the natural environment with the space dimensions, materials and architectural shaping. The vineyard houses in the Haydar, Bulak and Kestane Creek, which cover the valley and hill, resemble other vineyard houses with their materials and construction techniques, but differentiate from the others with their dominant position in the city landscape.

In the Karadere vineyards in the western part of the Buldan entrance road, which is less hilly than the other regions and named after Karadere passing through it, there is a different and elaborate architecture in terms of design, workmanship and materials. While vineyard houses were used during the period between April and October in the past, they are only used during the vineyard period, ie between the end of August and early October. The vineyard houses, which consist of a closed space and a semi-open 'frosty' space in front of it, are planned for their lands and landscapes, if any.
