L.G. Zhukov House

L.G. Zhukov House (late 18th century)
From the village Kalinino, Kalininsky Rural Area, Totma District.
Specialists of the Spetcproectrestavratsia Institute (Moscow) identified the building in 1979 in the course of a field survey of the Totma and Nyuksenitsa Districts. It was transferred to the museum premises in 1988. It was transferred to the museum in 1988.
The L.G. Zhukov House is a  house - cattle yard complex in one row with a five-wall residential section (izba gornitsa).  The residential part of the house stands on a high ground floor storeroom divided in two parts. Entrance to the storeroom under the izba is through the cellar aside of the stove, while access to the under-the-room storeroom is from the outside, through a low-rise porch under a curb roof.  
The house has a narrow yard and an outside cover porch, constructively joined with the seni and a shed attached to it and the side wall of the cattle yard. Also, the interior of the izba had decorative painting of the window pillars (poorly conserved, they had been identified in the course of disassembling of the house and preserved in the course of the 2004 restoration).   
A traditional plank nailless curb roof of special traditional chicken-gutter construction above the major part of the house is higher than that above the cattle yard: the level difference amounts to 1.15m.
Dimensions: 23.2 x 10.8m (the yard is 7.8m wide).
Project author: Architect A.L. Smyshlyaev.
The restoration project includes restoration of the cattle yard, both porches, shed, and interior elements in the residential part of the house.  In the 2000s, the Scientific and Restoration Council of the Vologda State Museum Reserve decided to reinstate the traditional Totma painting on the replicated of the new materials paneled partition.
