The village homes; a data record…

The backside of the village, the side you never see…

This article is simply a data post. I am going to put all the village homes that I can find in a gallery here. Even if they are burned or collapsed, I will try to get a picture of them and post it. It will take me a few days to get them all, but I am going to try, before they all collapse…

Five or six more to be posted, as soon as the weather gets better…

I have to get an image of a couple of last homes. They are the farthest back and most secretive of all the homes. I am not sure if someone is in them or not, but Boza and I will make a trip soon to see…

Last update to this post. I have now recorded all village homes that are more than just a crumbled foundation. Most are not lived in anymore, but many are used just in the summer time. The last three were just added at this update…

Have a nice day…

    Kyle, the shorter additions on the village homes……..are they a mud room or a bathroom? I’d love to have you photograph the insides of some of these village homes if the owners would give you permission. Tell them it’s for someone who is trying to get in touch with their mother’s village roots on how she may have lived in the 1920’s and 30’s. What are the dates on these homes? Lucy

    Lucy, they are what I call a mudroom and 99% of the time they are added on, thus they always look mismatched in most cases.The homes are not that old, but they do look that old. Our place is only 40 years old or so, as most of these places. Though they have been building them this way for a long time. People (including me) in a tiny village like this, the ones who live here most of the time, are not open to visits, except business or helping. Business such as buying milk or eggs and helping such as seeing if they need food or drink when you go to town. Other than that we all stay aloof from each other. I am getting ready to spring clean our village home, so maybe after I am done, I will post images of what ours looks like inside… 🙂

    I promise that it is small and compact…

    Thanks Lucy for stopping by…

    Where I live there are a few mosquitos due to the draining ditches all around here because of our proximity to the river Elbe. I installed mosquito nets in the windows. Grey ones (rather than white) are almost invisible. The problem of mosquitoes in my sleeping room is now totally eliminated. I would be very happy if I lived in your place and owned an old russian motorcycle. Michael

    Michael: Yes, if I had my druthers, I would have a motorcycle with a sidecar and Boza could ride with me to town. 🙂

    I have the only netting I could get and it is blue, kinda cool color I think. It works and the only issue that I have is keeping the little demons out as I come and go all day. I burn a repellent in the entrance, which has a door that seals the rest of the house away from it and just started a new repellent before I answered your comment. Oh, and do not worry, we are not grammar police on Windows to Russia and if you are on the wrong post, I consider that good. That means you are reading the blog…

    It is a wonderful place to live and I think I might live here year around…

    Thanks for stopping by…
