N.M.Yurov House (late 19th century)
From the village Kriulya, Markushevsky Rural Area, Tarnoga District.
Specialists of the Spetcproectrestavratsia Institute (Moscow) identified the building in 1982 in the course of a field survey of the Tarnoga District. It was transferred to the museum premises in 1993.
The N.M. Yurov House is a house -cattle yard built in one row with a six-wall residential section - "twin rooms" (izba+summer izba) and a cattle yard of the same width.
The residential section consists of the winter izba located on the right-hand side of the façade and the summer izba located on the left-hand side. The summer izba is smaller than the log structure of the winter room. The winter izba initially was chimneyless as shows an opening for a smoke way in the back side.
Window frames of this house are a special feature of this house; they had been restored by the sample of the only inner sash in the corner of the façade of the log structure. Another interesting feature of the façade decoration was a console balcony: the overhanging beams for it had been walled up along with the log structure; however, the owner had never accomplished either the balcony, or the attic.
The house and cattle yard complex has a nailless plank curb roof of special traditional chicken-gutter construction. A one-pole porch with dual-slope locker roof had been restored by the preserved joints adjacent to the side façade.
Dimensions: 11.8 x 18.8 m.
Project author: Architect O.N. Pershina.
The original porch and some missing elements of the cattle yard have been restored based on a whole complex of research studies.
