The buildings in a tenant farmer’s farmyard were often the same as on a farm: house, cow barn, hay barn and even a storehouse. But poverty and little time for improvements and repairs often left the buildings in poor condition. The farmyard could have the same form as local farms. The house was often built together with the outbuildings as one long structure. This led to a better use of the plot of land and a saving on materials.
The farm has the same square farmyard as elsewhere in Trøndelag. The farmhouse was moved from a tenant farm, Bakarplassen, but in 1914 was considered more as an example of a type of house than of a social setting. It was only when the rest of the little farmyard was raised in the early 1950s that its character became that of a tenant farm.
