I am trying to read this unidentified Kanji

unidentified Kanji

It is some kind of house part, found on this map, as marked: http://i.imgur.com/hsSC9kH.png

It's from an older book from Nagano-ken, so it is possibly an older / now unused Kanji.

Please, if anyone can help me identify it, it is the last piece of the puzzle I am missing. Maybe it's a very simple Kanji, I don't know, right now I am at my wit's end.


Looks like 「[竈]{かまど}」 to me. It means a "cooking stove" -- the kind where you burn wood.

Another reading is 「へっつい」 for the same meaning, but 「かまど」 is far more common.
