The half-timbered house

The local folk form of the house of northwestern Bohemia in the Ore Mountains. For this mountain house, it is typical to have farming and living spaces under one roof, which are divided by the entrance corridor, which is located in the middle of the house, on the living and farming part.
The house was initially timbered, later built of stone with a half-timbered floor and a high roof, often staying slate or eternity.

The new half-timbered house is built in the village of Lesná in the Ore Mountains. It will be part of the existing museum. He will remind how he lived in the mountains before. Lesná (German Ladung) was a prosperous village that almost disappeared after the displacing of the original German population.
Today is in Lesná, in the replica of the old house, a museum that will grow significantly in next two years.
