    The Storehouse, "Loft", from Rolstad. Xylography from 1888.
This storehouse was used as sleeping quarters. It is built of thinner logs notched by a special method called findalslaft. Stave-built galleries cover three sides of the upper floor, with a three-holed privy furthest back. An outer stair leads to the gallery where tiny arcades in the Romanesque arches slip in light.
