Geocache Description:


Casa Típica de São Jorge

 A casa redonda representa um modelo de casa em madeira, este circunscrito à zona de
São Jorge, paredes meias com o concelho de Santana.
Estas casas são compostas por um sótão, onde se guardavam produtos agrícolas (por
exemplo as sementes), e um piso térreo, geralmente área habitacional, que se
encontrava dividido em duas partes separadas por um frontal. Dependendo do declive
do terreno, algumas casas têm também uma cave, vulgarmente designada de loja. Este
compartimento tanto podia servir de arrecadação, como de quartos de dormir.


 A área habitacional servia essencialmente de dormitório, o quarto do casal e o quarto
dos filhos. Por vezes, o quarto dos filhos era dividido com uma cortina de pano, de
forma a separar os rapazes das raparigas. O acesso ao sótão pode ser feito tanto por dentro, como por fora (pela porta do sótão) com o auxílio de uma
escada.
 A cozinha era uma construção à parte, também com cobertura de colmo, onde para
além de se confecionar a comida, se realizavam também outras tarefas, como bordar,
coser roupa, fiar, e outros trabalhos ligados à agricultura e às lides domésticas. Tal
como nas cozinhas das casas de Santana, não existe chaminé, o fumo concentrava-se
no desvão da cobertura, enegrecendo a armação e a palha, embora por vezes
encontrasse uma fuga, ocasional ou forçada temporariamente, escapando para o
exterior em novelos densos, provocados pela abertura da porta da rua, o que daria a
sensação de a casa estar a arder.

 

 

 

 

 

Typical São Jorge's house


 The round house represents a model of house in wood, this restricted to the zone of São
Jorge, half walls with the county of Santana.
These houses are made up of an attic, where agricultural products (eg seeds) were
kept, and a ground floor, usually a housing area, which was divided into two parts
separated by a frontal. Depending on the slope of the land, some houses also have a
basement, commonly called a store. This room could be used as a storage room or as a
bedroom.


  The housing area served essentially as a dormitory, the bedroom of the couple and the
children's bedroom. Sometimes the children's room was divided with a cloth curtain so
as to separate the boys from the girls. Access to the attic can be done both inside
(through a trap door) and outside (through the attic door) with the help of a ladder.
 The kitchen was a separate building, also with thatched roof, where in addition to the
food preparation, other tasks were also carried out, such as embroidering, sewing,
spinning, and other work related to agriculture and domestic work. As in the kitchens of
Santana's houses, there is no chimney, smoke was concentrated in the basement of the
roof, blackening the frame and straw, although sometimes it found an escape,
occasionally or temporarily forced, escaping to the outside in dense webs, caused by
the opening of the street door, which would give the feeling that the house is burning.
