The paper reports data on the dwelling №1 of the settlement Lasta VIII at Izhma river (Lasta village, Izhemsky District, Komi Republic). In 2001 T.V. Istomina discovered new materials for the study of the stone industry, pottery production, chronology and housebuilding of Choynovty or Garino culture of the Eneolithic Age. The dwelling was a semi-subterranean wood-frame house with a fireplace. A bifacial knapping was used for the production of flint arrowheads. A typologically uniform ceramics is represented by vessels ornamented with impressions of a comb stamp. Two radiocarbon dates were obtained for the fragments of charcoal that made up the burnt structure (?) of the dwelling – 4130 ± 90 (Le-6204) and 4770 ± 300 BP (Le-6205), of which the first is the most reliable. The dwelling № 1 of the settlement Lasta VIII is one-time assemblage. It allows attributing this site to the reference materials for the study of Choynovty culture as parallel of Garino culture in the northeast of Europe.
