A.I. Ulanov House

A.I. Ulanov House (late 19th  – the early 20th  cent.)
From the village Zarechye, Nizhne-Uftugsky Rural Area, Nyuksenitsa District.
Specialists of the Spetcproectrestavratsia Institute (Moscow) identified the building in 1981 in the course of a field survey of the Nyuksenitsa District. It was transferred to the museum premises in 1991. 
    The A.I. Ulanov House is a  house - cattle yard built in one row with a four-wall residential section with expanded cattle yard and attached to it slightly setback small winter room. Attached to it low-rise porch under a shed roof leads to the bridge between the two izbas.  Log structures of the summer and winter izbas are planked with batten.
The house has a richly decorated console balcony at the level of the attic.
The roof above the complex has composite configuration: the izba and the complex of the summer izba with a cattle yard have separate roofs with two parallel ridges on tops (“of two ridge bridges”).
At the time of identification of the house in the village of Zarechye, the roof over the izba was perpendicular to the roof of the main space of the house; however, according to the house owner, it had been reconstructed this way because of frequent leaks in the late 1940s. The original scheme of roofing was restored at the museum in the course of repair and restoration work. 
The well-developed space and planning composition is a special feature of the Ulanov House. It is distinct by its spacious summer izba with four windows along the main façade (usually, the main façades had three window apertures). This house demonstrably illustrates the progress in forms of rural residencies by the early 20th century.

The restoration project includes reconstruction of the original layout of the memorial and missing elements of the cattle yard and interiors.  The original painted partition has been restored in the interiors of the summer izba.
