    Barn and stable from Sandnes, Jølster Anne-Lise Reinsfelt / Norsk Folkemuseum

The hay barn is stave-built with wooden panels set in a framework, an age-old method of building in western Norway.

The middle room was used for threshing grain, and the rooms on either side for storing grain and hay. A log stable is built onto the barn as was usual in Jølster.

Acquired by the museum in 1925 and rebuilt here in 1931/1932
