Rogova Village

The Stone house is located in the village of Rogova of Has on the right side of the White Drin.
Stone house was built in the XVI century by Hasan Aga Qeli of Demjan, who built the Rogova mosque in 1580 and Rogova Hammam (which does not exist today). The premise belongs to the type of three-storey Stone houses.
The technique of masonry and structure of building material (stone, mortar, plaster, tiles), is consistent with the Mosque of Hassan Aga in Rogova, which can be assumed to have been built not only at the same time, but also by same builders.
The primary destination of the premise was as residential facility, where the ground floor was used as a cowshed, first floor was intended for residents of the house while the second floor we have a men chamber. It is said that the Stone house for a while served as a mosque, this is proven by the domes found in men chamber and this makes the Stone house unique to the style of construction in Kosovo and beyond.
The stone house of Ymer Poga by all records is considered the oldest Stone house in Kosovo.
The outer walls are of stone material, while the roof cover layer material is lead and slate, which can be often found in this type of premises. Construction within interstitial space is made of wood, medium dimensions, since the dimensions of the Stone house itself are of average size. Interstitial space floors are made of planks, while on the ground floor are from dirt. Vertical communication is done with the inner wooden staircase.
There is a guest chamber in the third floor, with fireplace “voter” within the walls opposite to the entrance, while the pre-entrance we have a sofa, which also has vortex. In 2009 and 2013-2014, partial works were made in the Stone house in order to protect the premise from further damage. Interventions were carried out in rehabilitation of the roof covering, cleaning and injection of external walls and shelter. However, more conservation – restoration works are needed within this stone house, in order to become fully operational.
