A wooden house from the late 19th century, located in homestead no. 5 in Zofiówka, is a building with regional value. The house has a log wooden structure and is an example of rural residential architecture included in a milling homestead from the late 19th century.

History The house was built by Stanisław Pachniak for a multi-generational family. His son, Stanisław - a miller and farmer, with his wife Melania, was a subsequent owner. Later, the house was taken over by a current owner, Danuta Sobolska, granddaughter of Stanisław and Melania. The building’s roof tiles were renovated three times. Currently, it is covered with Eternit. In the middle of the building a tile oven was installed. It functioned as a cooker. Formerly, the house had a wide front, but the porch at the front door from the side of the road rotted, so the entrance has been located in the end wall ever since.


The building is located at the side road of Zofiówka village, located between Iłża and Lipsko on the Krępianka river. The house is aligned with the road with its longitudinal wall, facing west, while its front faces north and the farmyard. Behind the feature, there is a water reservoir surrounded by trees. The entire holding is situated on the edge of a small wood. The road at which the house stands is perpendicular to the main road leading to Lipsko. The building’s foundations are made of a stone wall bound with clay, cemented. The ground plate is made of oak wood in the form of chipped bales, logs joined by saddle notch, walls made of pine wood, planked bales, log structure reinforced by studs, weatherboarded, corners joined by saddle notch.
