The Schwärzer house in Grassemann
In the Fichtelgebirge, single-story timber construction prevailed until the 19th century. The roofs were covered with shingles, the facades covered with boards. In exposed high altitudes, one-starters were mostly built, in which dwelling, stable and barn are arranged side by side under a ridge.
The Schwärzer house in Grassemann is a typical representative of this construction. It was built in 1698 as a block building and, with only two major changes, has been preserved to this day: a black kitchen was installed in 1760; In the middle of the 19th century a second threshing floor was added and a litter shed was built. The tiled stove in the parlor is a back-loader and was stoked from the black kitchen. It not only had a heating but also a cooking function. A short museum guide, which is available here, provides further information, including on the everyday life of the house residents.
