Baba-Nyonya houses, southern Chinese houses

I've been trying to find floor plans of historical Baba-Nyonya houses. I've found a lot of photos of exteriors, and a few of the interiors, but nothing that gives me a good idea of the layout. Can anyone point me to a good resource?

Already tried: all sorts of combinations of "baba-nyonya" "peranakan" "straits chinese" "house" "terrace house" "floor plans" "architecture" and various place names. And a trip to my university's library.

I'm also curious about the layouts of historical houses found in southern China. There's a lot about courtyard houses and tulou houses out there, but not much about other styles. If you know of good resources for those, then that would be appreciated, too.
