Date of View:
The open-hearth house, or ¿restue, was used as a dwelling house in Setesdal into the 1880s. It had an open gallery in stave construction running along the front, and its furnishing and decoration bore traces of the Middle Ages. The old ¿restue became the summer living quarters or the eldhus for baking, brewing, washing and other heavy tasks. Next to the dwelling was the loft, a storehouse of two or three stories, whose gable faced the farmyard. The loft buildings in Setesdal were built on stone foundations and had galleries of stave construction surrounding the upper story.
