The House that Ron Loge Built: The Stabbur

October 31, 2020

The centerpiece of every farm in Norway was always the storehouse, or stabbur. The food stored during summer and fall in this humble log and stave building was what got people through the long, cold winters every year.  They were built so well, many are still standing 300 years later. Join us as we l hear the story from a man who built his own version in the mountains of Montana, and learned to carve the portals just like the stave churches of old.  We also hear a song played by the Nordahl Grieg Spelemannslag.
