Vernacular Architecture in Norway

I thought I would make a tread about some pieces of historic vernacular architecture that have been preserved in Norway. The most famous exponents of this style is of course our stave churches, but some other buildings have been kept too. Let me show you them.

Helleren in the Jøssing fjord. A small craft that is admittedly more famous for its location than its architecture, which is of the modest variety. The place have been settled since the 16th century, but the current buildings dates from the early 1800s. Three families lived here during 19th century before it got abounded at the turn of the 20th century.

Great thread! The images you have posted remind me of the tv show called "The Vikings" We need more threads regarding vernacular architecture from different corners of Europe!

Knivsflå is the name given to two old farms located about 250m above the surface of the Geiranger fjord, next to the Seven Sisters waterfalls in western Norway. The waterfalls used to be known as Knivsfossane too after the farms. The farms were inhabited since the 1600s at least, but was left vacant in 1898 after it was thought it was in danger of being hit by falling rocks.

Heddal stave church is a stace church located at Notodden in eastern Norway. It was built in first part of the 13th century by five local farmers. It is mentioned in written sources from 1315. It was modified during the 17th century, but these modifications were removed in a restoration in the middle of the 19th century.
