Storage

Two storage sheds from an open-air museum in Norway, from the 14th and 12th century. Actually the right building is the oldest intact wooden house or house-like structure still existing in Europe, from the late 12th century.

These sheds often served a double function: the ground floor was used to store the supplise throughout the year for the farm, but the upper floor was also the parlour were guest were welcomed or served, contracts made, celebrations held on so on, and all valuables of the farmstead were kept there all the time. Living happened in a lower and sometimes much simpler house.

Metal

Some pics I took in Norway this summer (yes, there is a theme *g* )


The model of the inside of a pylon of a Norwegian oil rig in the North Sea (seen in the Petrol Museum in Stavanger). The pylons of these rigs are enormous, and it's totally fascinating what's inside.
