Here are some houses of wood and straw in a village called Ramet in Transylvania, Romania.
Those are made with the ax, some have over 100 years.For me are very interesting and maybe will be inspirational for someone. If this post will be removed i leave to the administrators of this site so enjoy!

Probably tall for rain and snow runoff. Looks like they didn’t want to go to the Home Depot for shingles. Really interesting, I wonder do people still live there?

I believe the roofs are tall to shed snow and rain.

Bud, are you from Transylvania? The man who delivers my wife’s medical supplies every month was born there.
I’ll ask his last name and the name of his village when he comes this month.

Their height provide good drain of rain.I heard rumors that some old people still lives in them but i am sure they are turned into animal shelters or tools deposits,probably will never know unless we don’t visit them.

If I am not mistaking here, the roofs are tall due to open pit fires inside. It allows the smoke to be directed up and out through the top so as to not accumulate where the people breath. If you notice the sticks poking through the tops as well as in some pics the top will be rectangular in shape and flat looking on top. more of these pics found here

It’s a shame all over the world beautiful old homes and wood crafts are left uncared for.
I guess we need to advance but these views of our past are lovely.

Thanks. I delighted. It is historical exotic. I take off a hat before builders of these houses. And thanks to those who kept it for us and our children. At mine the Grandfather (Ded) and Babushka (Granny), I was similar the hut (is a little bit more modern). The hut was spread covered), a roof – a cane. Till 1982. If it remained, I would redeem it and created the museum….....
