Half-buried houses in Romania

If you were in Romania early 19th century, in Oltenia, one of the regions of the country, you would have seen half-buries houses – „bordeie”. The economical and historical conditions, as well as the climate ones, made this type of house very popular in the area.

At first, it was just a „one room hoots with hight wood in a quadrilateral hole”, but in time it evolved to a three or four holes house. These half-buried houses were present until the first half of the 20th century.

Seen from the outside, these houses look like „mounds of earth covered with weeds”. The inside “walls are made of thick, carved oak beams, raised above the ground with approx. 1 meter.”

To learn more about these “bordeie” please check out the photo below with explanations in both Romanian and English. Click on the photo to view it in a larger size.

    One thing I’d prefer to say is always that before purchasing more computer system memory, look into the machine in which it can be installed. When the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory threshold is 3.25GB. Putting in in excess of this would merely constitute just a waste. Make certain that one’s mother board can handle the actual upgrade amount, as well. Thanks for your blog post.
