For evaluating the termite resistance of real scale houses especially housing wall systems and floor framings, a experimental building was prepared. After initial feeding of termite, this house was constructed. In this experimental building, several parts which were built by different wall systems and floor framing. The room temperature of these parts were controlled. Water can be provided in the wall systems. Well termite installed feed log was inserted in each wall system. After 2 weeks, the difference of agregation can be observed. By this experimental building, the termite resistance of housing system can be classified.
