Old Outhouse Outhouses are buildings people among other things keep tools and firewood. In the old days people built their outhouse using different materials and different techniques. This is a picture of a very old outhouse near our school in Røvær. Barn In earlier days many families in Røvær had a small barn. Their main income was usually by fishing, but beside this they could have a horse, a cow and some sheep. People kept these animals to be self-supported with meat and milk. The picture shows a barn that was built many years ago. As what was (or is) common with barns, the owner stored hay at second floor, and the first floor were used as a stable. NORWAY

It provides visitors with the unique opportunity to enter into an art form more often viewed on a much smaller scale.
