Blacksmith hut: the most unusual house in the Sverdlovsk Region
In Kunar village in the Sverdlovsk region flaunts incredible marvel of architecture - House blacksmith Sergei Ivanovich Kirillov. About half a century he was involved in the construction and decoration of their house, while being self-taught master. Unfortunately, Vavilov's gone, but now lives in his house wife Lydia Haritonovna, which received offers to buy the house for great money every day, but it certainly does not agree.
Every waking moment Sergey Ivanovich spent in the workshop, he constantly something was making and building, and no matter it was a normal day, New Year or birthday. In the end, he built a magnificent house in the painted folk style, with a large terrace and patio. Cottage itself is located on the highway road, so any a passing motorist may not take his eyes off this art. Perhaps precisely because of its strategic location, the house became so popular in the neighborhood. Many people are traveling in Kunar specially admire the house.
Many tourists say that the house is like a delicious colorful gingerbread with filling that no one has yet dared to eat because of its beauty. And some argue that the house is like a temple which is strange gods, with incomprehensible inscriptions and slogans. Of course, everyone sees what he wants to see, but one thing is clear, the house makes a lasting impression on everyone. The coat of arms of the Soviet Union, some birds, church domes, the bride and groom and children, wrought iron flowers, knights, beautiful curls ... One gets the feeling that this house specifically built and decorated for children. Blacksmith building is a miracle, I looked at the world quite different eyes, and all that is seen in the world - is displayed on their housing.
There is no longer a blacksmith, he died about four years ago. But all who remember him, in one voice say that the soul of the blacksmith was the same as the house he built. Now this house lived master's wife - Lydia Haritonovna. She is a very open person and never closes its doors by visitors. Instead, on the gate there is a special button that opens the door, and everyone can come and enjoy this wonderful masterpiece of art and architecture. Though a lot of visitors, and the house is near a busy highway, but no one had never robbed a house and had not done anything wrong.
blacksmith's wife says that when they were married, Sergei Ivanovich, you are living in the house of his father. Over time, the house began to sink and in need of repair. That's just from this moment began to occur all the metamorphoses of their housing. First Sergey only corrected the house and began to install new shutters. Then he made the frames and put the carved gates, and then could not stop. That's all my life and worked hard to improve her home.
And to the question: Where is the husband learned this craft? - Lydia Haritonovna replies that he has mastered everything. Education, he had only three classes, and in the race there was no one of such masterful that taught him. My father went to war but never returned. Sergei grew up without a father's care, and so they had to learn everything myself. Over time, his mother died and he had to take care of younger brothers and sisters. You should have somewhere to earn money for food, so he went to the blacksmith apprentice-Hammerstrike. So all his life and was the only blacksmith in Kunar.
Then Sergei worked on the farm and the house he built himself his own workshop. When he came home from work tired, but still always went into the back room and worked there until 12 at night, and get up and go back to work at 4 am. Never anything he did not refuse to friends, fellow villagers - always helped. It happens that in the village there were fires. Neighbor's house Pohorje, and blacksmith house always remained unscathed.
When in 1996, held the election campaign, the blacksmith's house noticed in the department of one of the parties. Deputies have placed the image of the house in many booklets of his party. Lydia Haritonovna showed reporters a certificate, which states that the party will help home owners and their descendants. But how do you think they could at least buy a cheap mattress for my grandmother? So you think properly.
When Sergei died, the house had begun to deteriorate. Lydia Haritonovna 78 years, and she is no longer able to update the house, and to repair it. Not help asking who - most of the villagers have already elderly, who also can not help grandmother. This continued up until about this house did not become known in Ekaterinburg Museum of icons and antiquities. Museum staff sent workers to the house, which helped the old woman. They renovated and converted house, and at the same time, the hostess left a contact telephone number, in case you need help again. In gratitude, the owner of an unusual house gave employees warm wool socks, related by herself.
At the cemetery, the grave of Sergei Ivanovich stands at the entrance to a large pine tree. He himself forged the tombstone during his lifetime. People who look at his monument, it is not sad. Monument - a huge variety of flowers, forged from metal. On the ground, people are born, who were to be flowers. If Sergei was a flower, he would have grown up to the heavens.
