While every house in Slovenia has a civic address, many houses also carry a household name. These names are how other people typically referred to that family. This house originally carried the name of Hušičevi. This household name is derived from the surname of the matriarch of this family who was from Sečje Selo 8.
This house is the second of 9 documented houses in church documents to be considered a “new” house in Sečje Selo. The best estimate for the construction of these series of houses is after 1840.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Johan Bauer b. 1821. He married Marija Hušič (Kavonerova) b. 1815. Together, they had at least 3 children, including:
1A. Johan Bauer b. 1844, m. 1868 to Barbara Gašparič (Gašparičeva from Hrast) — they remained at this house.

Before the death of their first son, the Bauer family left to live in the United States. After returning from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Matija Zatovšek (Lukinov from Podklanec) moved in with his two children and wife Katarina Bubaš (Gornja Bubašova from Učakovci).
