Woodcutter’s hut from Mixnitz


Built: 18th century (1845/1922)
Year of translocation: 1968

This one-roomed log cabin is a typical example of the kind of simple hut which woodcutters built when they were working away from home. The hut has a vaulted ceiling made of round logs and a steep shingle-covered saddle roof which is open at the gable-ends. There was an open raised hearth in the centre of the room which was used by the woodcutters for preparing simple yet nourishing meals. The smoke escaped through hatches in the gable walls just below the ceiling. Alongside the walls are bunk beds. Dry leaves, branches or ferns were used for bedding.
