Bomba-House in Karelia in Finland

The original  Bomba-House was constructed by the Karelian farmer Jegor Bombin for his son from natural round wood without iron fittings and he constructed it really big: 25 meters long, 10 meters wide and three floors high. There were 24 people under the roof with their cattle. When the son died, the house was divided into its individual parts. The five stacks were shared among the five sons. A normal blockhouse could be built from each stack. In the middle of the last century, the house including a Karelian village was reconstructed here. Almost every window is different.
