BregHouse.com began as a place for me to share the progress of the Breg House project, over a decade ago. Now it’s a place where I write about this amazing country that I now call home: see my Slovenia blog.
Built of stone and wood, Breg House is a rennovated kašča (pronounced kash-cha) and is over 300 years old. A kašča is a traditional structure, typical to the Koroška region of Slovenia. They were often part of a farm and were used for curing meat and storing produce.
The house was bought by me and my brother in 2007. We had grand plans to renovate it but things didn’t quite go to plan (at least initially). However, over the last decade, the project has evolved considerably.
The upper floor is the living space of the house. Here you’ll find a modern kitchen, and the very heart of the house, the lounge which is the oldest part of the building – the original chunky, hand-sawn wood cabin.
