The oldest farmstead, ”Gammelgården” (The Old Farmstead), has its various farm buildings from the seventeenth century placed randomly around the yard.
In the eighteenth century farmstead, however, changes have taken place; the yard is now devided by a fence into a farmyard and a smaller garden. Here, the barn is built from frame-sawn timber, in contrast to the seventeenth century farmstead, were everything is made by hand, and the floor is of well-trodden clay.
Whilst, in the eighteenth century farmstead, the floor is made of broad planks, the nineteenth century farmstead (the museum´s latest addition) contains a stone dwelling-house, a copper´s workshop, a brewery and a barn with a hen house.
As late as into the seventeenth century the basic building plan for a dwelling-house was just one room with a gable entrance (as in the old farmstead ”Lunderhagestugan”). Later, the doorway was moved to the facade, leading into a small entrance hall with an adjacent sleeping chamber – ”enkelstuga”.
