Carpathian Heritage: Wooden Houses

The aim of this album is to gather all wooden architecture (houses but not only) of the Carpathian range which respects the following criterias :
- Built at least before the 70's
- Not a pastoral hut or any other type of sherperd shelter, neither wooden mountain refuge in the hut style.
- Not a religious object (ex: wooden churches)

I hope Eric will split it into 2 (or 3) separate albums: CH:W Houses; CH:W Churches; (CH:WShepherd's Huts). And I'd stick to the older things (virtually no guesthouses, even if they're a wonderful place to stay:))
Surely I'll give it/them a 10 as soon as I can vote on it/'em:)

Sure ! I'll split it into a sherperds hut album too, you're right, the "houses" alone is a too wide theme.
I saw that you added some pics of mine which I even forgot about ! And thanks for removing few post-70's items :)
I'm also thinking about a "carpathian's mountain-refuges" album, grouping only those out of the Tatras and only the nice-lookong ones.
Congratulations for the churches album too :)

album; I gave it the 10/10 anyway, because I'm a history buff!

All the ancestors on my grandmother's mother's side were immigrants from Czechoslovakia. They all came to America at the turn of the century for a new start. My grandmother, however, got married before her high school education was finished. She ended up living in a wooden house, because that was her heritage.

Thanks for bringing back my grandmother's memories!

I'm just glad "KNOT" to notice any butterflies in these pictures! : ))))))))))))) - One final question, are the walls of these houses KNOTTY??? : )))

And ... it's OBVIOUS the reason I gave this 10/10 was
purely for sentimental reasons! ! !!!!

Just added few more items... Tomorrow I definitely must split the "huts" content from the "houses" content... too much.
What do you mean by "knotty" ?
and isn't "Carreau" (I suppose "A" is your first name) more french than czechoslovakian ? ;)

I mean "knotty" like pine wood. Excuse me, I thought I had commented once before. This is 'Larry' from Arizona.

You're right - that is my Father's side of the family - French
Canadian. I am actually a mixture of several different cultures.
(However, I'm not sure if I have a "Cottage Cheese" culture in
me! : ))))))))) - Please, have a great day!)

Au revoir et salut!
