This cog-joint hut from Lærdal is unique. It is a small guardsmen’s hut which originally was located on top of the mountain of Vetanosi between Lærdalsøyri and Fodnes, about 11oo meters above sea level.
The hut has a door in one of the end walls and big peepholes with a view in three directions. Along the walls there are fixed dirt benches.
This stately high official’s residence was built at Grov in Vik in the mid-18th century and served as a vicarage until 1930. It is 24 meters long and the base of the house measures close to 188 square meters. It is a timber structure built on one floor with a loft.
The vicarage has a tiled roof and exterior paneling. It was probably built in 1764-67. The house actually consists of two separate building joined together. One was the “Herrekammeret” (the gentleman’s lodgings) which was the residence of the vicar and could accommodate the bishop and other guests. The other building was “Borgstova”, a house for servants and farm workers.
