Barn Charm, Siljuberget - Elverum, Norway

The front



The back of the barn.



The house, now


A little fun to see the house again after 12 years.
When I took this picture of a cow that was stuck in the entrance of the old house.
 I've actually been twice with prizes.
As the years have matured quite a bit more.

Beautiful farmyard, and the cow is too funny! Wonder how long it took her to figure out how to get out.

How I love your country! When I visited last year saw more modern farms--fruit orchards, grain fields and my choice today--a fjordlands farm. Nothing like this beautiful old structure. Also very fond of the mustard yellow house paint as in your photo. Thanks for bringing back some great travel memories.

Flotte bilder Ingun!
Jeg liker veldig godt disse gamle tømmerhusa!

Herlig dette siste du viser ; )

Ønsker deg fortsatt god sommer! Fint vær ved Mjøsa i dag ; )

Klem til deg!

It is beautiful. We have wooden barns a bit like this too - but probably nowhere near as old. Do you know how old it is? My husband (history person) was just telling me that it could have been the hall of the lord of the manor hundreds of years ago. BTW I was an art teacher like you. He was a history teacher :) Thanks for visiting too :)

I think this is a barn from the pasture ca1850's.
Thank you for visiting
