The original timbered houses, built in the village until the middle of the previous century, form a dense and slightly irregular layout. Since the building lands could not be expanded at the expense of arable land in the past, the residents of Liptovská Teplička tried to use every spare piece of land to build their houses. Therefore, backyards in the oldest part of the village are very narrow, sometimes only wide enough to hold a fully loaded carriage.
However, such densely populated area also presented the risk of uncontrollable spread of fires. To prevent potential fires from destroying all stored crops, the locals built barns on the outskirts of the village; the barns stood separately from the residential buildings. Unfortunately, even these measures did not completely protect the crops and supplies against fire. This is proved by a large empty plot between the barns.
Liptovská Teplička still reports 117 barns at the site of Stodolište. The village uses the barns not only for farming, but also for various exhibitions held together with the cultural events in Liptovská Teplička. Together with the potato cellars, the Škvrkovec Spring, the rocky ridge Turnička, a wooden amphitheatre overlooking the terraced fields and the High Tatras, this area offers an unspeakable aesthetic experience.
