The hut, which was built as a log cabin, provided the charcoal burner with accommodation during his work in the forest, especially when the charcoal pile was burning. The hut was furnished with a modest sleeping platform and an open fire for preparing food and as a source of warmth. The charcoal burner's hut is a further development of the Rindentuck, which was only ever occupied by the woodcutters for short periods of time. Examples of this can be seen opposite the charcoal burner's hut and on the Panaromaweg.
