The newest residential buildings in the courtyard were completed in 1818. The street-side main building was originally painted with red ochre and the house had a mansard roof. There was no veranda. The building’s current form stems from the late 19th century. The courtyard building has been used as a sauna, a baking cabin and an apartment. At the other end of the plot there was an outbuilding that housed a stable, a cowhouse, a carriage house and a woodshed, as well as an outhouse. It was demolished in 1905 to make way for a three-storey stone house that currently houses a day care centre.
The kitchen is dominated by a large wood-burning stove lined with copper pots and sieves. The finer porcelain plates are stored in a display rack and more dishes can be found in the cupboard. The churn reminds the viewer of a time when even the city-dwellers kept cows. The furniture in the kitchen is old, consisting of Rococo style and Gustavian items. The wall are covered with dash coated wallpaper.
