Văsar farm, Lăzești farm, Alba sec. the nineteenth

In 1991, it was transferred to the museum from the area of Apuseni Mountains, a traditional household of a cooper master from Lăzești village (commune of Scărișoara, Alba county). The house dates from the second half of the 19th century and it belonged to Mariș Aurel (nicknamed Băb).
The building, with a high foundation in quarried stone, includes at the inferior floor two rooms: the master's workshop and the basement. The superior floor, in fir beams carved in four faces and dovetail-joined has a porch (terrace), and it also includes the living room, and a pantry with separated entries. The roof is high, with four slopes, and the covering is made in tongue and groove shingle. The access at the living floor is made by wooden stairs, with two ramps, protected by a stoop with the same type of shingle.
The household also includes series of appurtenance buildings: larder (pantry), built with a porch and a basement, the summer kitchen (with stone oven), having the roof in two slopes, the stable barn, and the hen house and the pigsty. All the buildings are made in wood, built on stone foundation, with coverings in fir shingle.
The inventory corresponding to the household reminds us about the inhabitants' occupations, among which we find working in the forest (practiced in high areas), and especially the barrel making (pots making), often seen in this area.
The household products, the wool fabrics, and the tools for the processing of wood barrel, and for their assembly in pots of different dimensions and forms, draw one's attention.
