I'm confused by the question. 遮雨 does represent the Taiwanese characters for j(l)ia-hōo.

comment How To *Write* The Northeastern ‘ber lou’?
These characters are almost certainly not in the Kangxi Dictionary! I've checked every component as a radical, and it doesn't seem to exist.

comment What is the relationship between vernacular and literary Chinese?
Before the New Culture Movement of the early twentieth century, no form of Mandarin was used in official written bureaucracy. The Ming and Qing dynasties would have used literary Chinese for that purpose, although the stylistic influence of the local Mandarin may have been present. Bureaucratic style would have thus been very different from the vernacular written Chinese of the novels at the time.
