Barn Charm , Hverven gård in Norway



This building is fantastic!
There is talk of building from the Middle Ages.
Hverven, large farm in Stange, Hedmark, Ottestad at the station. 
The farm was first mentioned 1225.


Denne bygningen  er fantastisk! 
Her er det snakk om bygg fra middelalderen.
Hverven, storgård i Stange kommune, Hedmark, ved Ottestad stasjon. 
Gården er første gang nevnt 1225.


Restored and maintained with iron beams.
Imagine if more people could take care of the old houses.
Want to read more about the farm, it says here: Hverven


Restaurert og holdes oppe med jernbjelker.
Tenk om flere kunne ta vare på de gamle husene.

Absolutely amazing that anything built by common people would still be standing after hundreds of years. I suppose those beams are keeping the stones from falling.
