Photographer's Note

Are you tired of red farm houses? Well, most but not all of them are red...

This scene may look like from a museum but it isn't, this is real life but I admit the old houses for storing food over winter (stabbur) hardly are in use anymore..!

Both storage houses are in a log construction that is typical for a "stabbur" but you may notice one of them is stripped for the original turf roof, most likely because of a leakage.

Another typical detail is the bell on top of the roof! This bell is called a food bell/meal bell (matklokke), and was used to summon farmhands working in the fields to the meals. But that was back then and not now...
