The house of Vladislav Ćertić is located in Kusadak, in hamlet Ćertići. It was built in the mid 19th century and it represents one of the rare authentic examples from this period.

It originated as ground floor house with a porch which was closed afterwards. Spatial plan consists of four parts which were made by splitting the almost square base into two equal parts. On one part sits a hallway and the ”house” shortened for porch width and on the other part sit two rooms. In the central area there is an open fireplace. In the hallway an in the “house” the ceiling is made of “shashovac”, and in two rooms the ceiling is made of “kolenika”. In all areas the floor is made of impregnated soil. There is an entrance on the south side of the house and with the south, west and east wall each having two windows. Dimensions of the house are 10.50 x 5.50 meters, and the house base is made of double oak beams which lay directly on the ground, bounded as “dovetail”. The walls are made in half-timbered construction with a impregnated soil composite, plastered and whitewashed. Four-sloped roof is covered with tile.

With its size and functional organization it represents an original example of the Morava type Šumadija house from mid 19th century.
