The importance of Rural Housing and values of historical villages in new constructions has caused the issue of designing residential patterns in rural areas in recent years. Consequently, many studies conducted in the field of rural housing to create design patterns. Pathology reports after running patterns show non-performance or changes of those patterns. Studies indicate that the low efficiency of patterns is because of mass-pointer interference, lack of comprehensive and reliable scientific research on rural housing. In some cases, precise review reposts show that the studies include an array of raw data that has been used in the design stage with no analysis. In each study, the validity of data collection, analysis and conclusions is dependent on appropriate application of scientific method. In research and design of rural housing, using appropriate research method can also ensure the integrity and accuracy of data collection and reliability of analysis and conclusions. In this article the “Survey Research Method” is used regarding design patterns of rural housing in 8 villages of Isfahan province. Therefore the data collection method, field studies, preparation method of research tools (questionnaires), data analysis, validity of data and conclusions are stated.
