The owner of the house on Drugety street assures that everything is preserved and will be restored
It seems that the situation with the house at Drugety st., 60 is not as bad as it seemed at first glance, and the cornice will be restored. Here is the statement of the house owner, journalist Oleg Dyba:
"...Everyhting is fine. The problem was blown out of proportion, due to ignorance and force majeure.
10 years ago I bought this house with a completely destroyed facade. I restored it reproducing the lost elements, which were partially preserved on the other part of the facade, having them cast in Lviv (because in Uzhgorod nobody could do it) according to old techniques.
The authentic wooden frames were preserved, although they do not keep the heat well, etc.
The stucco of the cornice was also cast, however, it could not be installed because it was dangerous - it would not have withstand excessive load and would have collapsed.
What happened today is that while replacing the elements of the roof, it turned out that the cornice is literally falling off. That is, there was a real danger of the destruction of the building and causing injuries to pedestrians below, on the sidewalk. Therefore, an urgent decision was made to quickly fence the sidewalk and dismantle the dangerous part of the facade preserving all its elements.
It was impossible to agree this situation with the architecture service due to urgency and it being weekend.
Everything is preserved and will be restored...", - the group Save Uzhhorod informs.
