building house in norway

Changing demographics and a growing social awareness led to increased political and architectural interest in providing cost-effective, sanitary, and comfortable residential space to the growing urban population in general and the working class in particular. … The configuration of houses also depended on whether the farm was situated on a hill or in flatter terrain. At Tree Top Hut in Norway and Urnatur in Sweden, I could clearly see that each treehouse came directly from the heart of the builders. The end product of this effort was the culmination of one of my life dreams – my ‘bucket list’ – that is, a home in Norway.  But the road to get here was not always an easy one. #10 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Oslo. The same subcontractor that supplied these appliances had also supplied the kitchen cupboards, cabinets, and countertop.  When these items were delivered, this subcontractor informed me that they could not provide the finish installation of these items because their employee – who normally did this work – had recently quit working for them.  I asked if they were getting a new employee to do this, but I was told that they had no prospects and had no idea if (or when) another installation employee would be available.  Therefore, I was told to arrange installation through the general contractor.  I did so, but I had to pay an additional fee to the general contractor for this extra service (which was not covered by the subcontractor). Plot area: 1200m2 The site is a plot that was designated for a summer house many years ago. These same laws stipulate that all offers from each bidder be in writing. We can also build Hostels and summerhouses. The apex of this trend was reached in 1966 with the massive buildings in Ammerudlia. These co-ops set standards for housing, hired architects to design solutions, and contracted to have them built. The contractor said that he would pass on this information to his painting crew.  I felt relieved that he had checked with me and that I had clarified how the job was to go. Most important was the introduction of massive sills underneath the staves (posts) to prevent them from rotting. The Jugendstil, a variant of Art Nouveau, had a certain influence on much of the new construction in Norway around the turn of the 20th century. Building a prefab house with a general contractor Building your house with a prefab system (be it pre-cut , elements or modules), will require that you do a certain amount of work on your site before the construction of the structure starts and after the construction ends. Building traditions varied by region and type of structure. I looked over the color samples that the contractor had at his shop.  I wanted the walls of the house to be light brown, with the trim (around the windows and doors, the corners, and the eaves) to be a darker brown.  I chose the colors and described how I wanted the house to be painted.  He made a note of the colors and said he understood. Another lesson learned:  Check ALL electrical outlets and telephone jacks to make sure they work when the house is delivered to you.  Don’t assume anything…, The Second Coat of Paint                                                               Posted April 17, 2017, After living in my house here for a couple of years, I decided it was time to add a second coat of paint.Â. The largest reconstruction project in Norway is the Bronze age settlement at Forsand in Ryfylke and the Iron age farm As the excavation began, I was in contact with each of these subcontractors, identifying what was included in their original construction bid, and what would be ‘extra.’  I was trying to be conservative – and I was becoming very cost-conscious – so my ‘wish list’ wasn’t long.  Even so, the added costs for each supplier amounted to approximately 30,000 NOK to 50,000 NOK.  Added to this was the water treatment and filtration equipment that I needed, and which was ordered through the plumbing company. The market for architects was limited in a sparsely inhabited country with no capital city, no court and no important government institutions. Catalogues are fun – they’re like wish lists.  I look at the pictures and imagine what it be like to live in such a house, and I also dream about the potential uses for such a home and its ability to accommodate my needs as well as that of expected visitors, etc.  Fun. However, when I was going through the house for the final inspection, this ventilation unit was still in the same place I had seen it before (from the photos that my cousin’s daughter sent).  I asked the construction foreman about this at the inspection, and he said that the people installing the system told him that this was the best location for the unit and that the people who installed it couldn’t/wouldn’t change it.  I was not informed of this at that time I originally brought up the issue.  If I had known that the location of the unit was not going to be changed, then I would have requested that the adjoining wall be moved inwards by a little (perhaps by 10 to 20 cm or so), which would make more space available for someone to crawl into that area to service the unit.  As it stood, there is only a 40 cm (15 3/4 inches) space alongside that unit where one has to crawl, maneuver, open the side of the unit, and pull out and reinstall two filters.  The 40 cm space doesn't even allow for the unit door to open completely. Nowhere else did Modernism become so firmly established as the mainstream trend in architecture. After calling around a bit, I found the name and contact information for an appliance repairman in my area.  Since I live in a rural area, this is the appliance repairman for this region – no one else appeared to be willing to work this area.  After a few calls and leaving messages, a return call was finally received.  Contact arrangements were made and directions given.Â. The photo was taken by the award-winning photographer Oddleiv Apneseth. The house must meet certain criteria relating to universal design (accessibility) and energy efficiency/the environment. [21], Rococo provided a brief but significant interlude in Norway, appearing primarily in the decorative arts, and mainly in interiors, furniture and luxury articles such as table silver, glass and stoneware. Another trip to Norway was scheduled, and an appointment was made with the construction company.  I was assured that the house was ready for occupancy.  This would be my first trip to Norwaysince before the construction had started, so I had never personally witnessed any of the construction progress (relying instead on the almost weekly photographs that were sent by my cousin’s daughter).  I was traveling about two weeks after school ended for the summer.Â.  I had mixed emotions, however; I was excited to actually see this house I was going to live in, but I was surprised to find a very large pile of construction debris at its side.  When I let myself in, I was again faced with mixed feelings.  The interior of the house looked like it was still under construction; the kitchen and laundry appliances were still in boxes in the living room, and the rooms were strewn with tools, equipment, and debris.  It didn’t look at all like it was finished or ready for occupancy.Â, As I went from room to room, I noticed that there were a couple of boxes of leftover tiles that had been used on the two bathroom floors.  Deciding that these tiles would be good to have in case I ever needed to have tiles replaced in the future, I put these boxes in my car.Â. Stone age hunters must have used such simple tent and turf hut constructions, which in principle could have been very similar to those still in use by Sami nomads, with straight or hook-formed rods. However, German modernism and town planning continued to influence early 20th-century architecture. There needed to be an underground drainage pipe installed from my property to a stream that runs nearby.  This required another permit from the kommune.  Also, there are two small sections of grazing land located between my house and this stream, and these parcels of land are owned by two different people.  In order to lay the pipe through their properties, these owners needed to give their permission.  Negotiations and arrangements were eventually made to do this, and these documents were submitted to the kommune. Statistics Norway has overall responsibility for providing statistics on Norwegian society. Backer also designed the restaurant at Ekeberg, opened in 1929. Winters appear to be not too cold but summers are cool. There were two carpenters working on the house, off and on, throughout the winter.  After the framing and some of the outside work was completed, the inside work started.  It was interesting to see the electrical wires going in, and the heating cables for the bathroom floors.Â. This is an example of that famous line from the movie, Healthcare System in Norway (Medical and Dental). There were two specific areas in Norway, however, that held a special attraction for me.  My father was from Mysen (in the south-eastern part of Norway).  I was born there, as well.  I figured that if I lived in that area, people there would know my last name, and know that I – and my ancestors – were part of that region. 50 Degrees North – unforgettable tailor-made and small group tours to Norway. Well connected internationally, these people were acquainted with the latest trends in architecture. In some country districts, folk artists produced the distinctly Norwegian craft of decorative painting, rosemaling, and related wood carving style. [15], After the Black Death, monumental construction in Norway came to a standstill, except for vernacular building, only to be resumed in the 16th and 17th centuries under Danish administration. These practices varied somewhat by region and climatic conditions and evolved over time, but were largely based on use of wood and other locally available resources.[27]. During the following century, the country experienced impressive growth in wealth and population, resulting in a need for new infrastructure and buildings. The same period saw the erection of a large number of splendid neo-classisist houses in and around all towns along the coast, notably in Halden, Oslo, Drammen, Arendal, Bergen and Trondheim, mainly wooden buildings dressed up as stone architecture. Peter M. Anker: Norsk folkekunst: kunsthÃ¥ndverk og byggeskikk i det gamle bondesamfunnet. Smaller, poorer farms might combine barns and dwelling houses, have simpler storage areas, and use the facilities of other farms for activities they could not afford to build houses for.  I was feeling some frustration and stress... Tuesday eventually arrived, and the plumber showed up early.  Finally!  I had several errands to run that morning, so I left the house and let him have at it.  As I drove away, I did notice him carefully reading an installation instruction book, starting at page one.  I had two immediate thoughts.  One was worrisome: “He’s not experienced with this system,” and the other was comforting: “At least he’s being careful to follow the instructions.”. There have been many instances where several houses have been found together in a cluster. The first of these - Lambertseter - introduced an entirely new phenomenon in the eastern areas of Oslo such as in Groruddalen, but similar areas also emerged in Bergen, Trondheim, and other cities. 20 miles from her store). Christian IV undertook a number of projects in Norway that were largely based on Renaissance architecture[18] He established mining operations in Kongsberg and Røros, now a World Heritage Site. The most renowned practitioner of this style was the architect Holm Hansen Munthe, who designed a number of tourist resorts, exhibition pavilions and churches in the 1880s and 1890s. Architecture was of interest mainly to a limited group of wealthy merchants and landowners. In my original building contract, I had ordered floor heating cables for the bathroom floors.  But the bathroom floors themselves were extra.  I had contacted two tile companies to see if they would give me bids for the bathroom flooring.  Again, only one company ended up willing to work with me by long-distance, and so they got the work. In Eastern inland Norway and Trøndelag, the houses around a tun were typically organized in a square (firkanttun); in Gudbrandsdal, there was a distinction between inntun (inner tun) and uttun (outer tun). As Norway became a strategic part of the Danish-Norwegian kingdom, Danish kings built fortifications along borders and the seacoast. I felt discouraged as I locked the door behind me.  I had been hoping that I could stay in the house that evening, and it didn’t look like it was nearly ready.  I drove back to my brother’s house and waited there until it was time for the appointment with the construction people that afternoon. I later talked with the young man I had been assigned to at the plumbing company, and asked why the house plans had not been followed in regards to the placements of those three items in the main floor bathroom (the cupboard, utility sink, and washing machine hook-up). “Maybe the water is OK now,” he said.  “We should wait until a new water test is done before we order this.”, I didn’t understand why or how the water quality would have changed between then and now.  In any event, this young man requested that I “see how it goes” and wait before ordering this equipment.  He also advised me to run all of the faucets in the house for several minutes to see if that would “clear out” the system and provide me with clean water.  I didn’t understand how this would work.  But after another person suggested the same thing (even though this second advice was from an electrician), I decided to try it. You might have seen it before, the barn built by farmer Lars Petter Olsen Valldal in Valldal valley in Fjord Norway in 1885. These caught the eye of the German emperor Wilhelm II, who visited Norway annually. Most old stave churches disappeared because of redundancy, neglect or deterioration, or because they were too small to accommodate larger congregations, and too impractical according to later standards. The other was the stave building tradition (typically found in stave churches), possibly based on improvements on the prehistoric longhouses that had roof-bearing posts dug into the ground. Remains of structures from the Stone Age through the Bronze Age and the Iron Age have been excavated at Forsand in Ryfylke, near Stavanger and several other locations. By far the largest private house in Norway is the Jarlsberg manor, renovated 1812–14 by the Danish architect Løser for count Herman Wedel-Jarlsberg. Although it was sometimes difficult for me to contact and communicate with the different subcontractors and outside suppliers for the different “extra” things needed on the house, the main builder was doing me a favor.  If the main contractor had arranged for these extra services and products themselves, they would have added 10% to the subcontractor charges.  By arranging and paying for these myself, I was saving money. ; Jens Christian Eldal. In a few weeks, summer began and the temperature started rising.Â. Looking back on this whole process, I see where I could (and should) have done things differently.  I’ve learned some lessons. It maintained its dominant position until about 1940. Telephone Hook-Ups                                              Posted May 30, 2014Â. First, after a house design was chosen, a detailed building plan was developed with the Four of our carpenters flew to Norway to build this treehouse, designed by renowned Norwegian treehouse designer Frode Schei. In Scandinavia this architectural trend was called Functionalism (or colloquially in Sweden and Norway "funkis"). In 1389 Norway entered into a personal union with Denmark and Sweden in the Kalmar Union. Following the German lead, many classicist architects designed red-brick buildings in a revival of medieval styles. Again, since I was not living in Norway at the time, I needed the house to be finished as much as possible – I wasn’t able to do any work on it myself.  I therefore asked if the outside walls of house would be painted.  The answer was “No,” but I could have it primer-coated, and the cost would be extra.  I ordered the primer-coated walls, and the workers used pre-primed wood on the outer walls. ), I noticed that, one-by-one, they started to drop out – they stopped replying to my messages.  I don’t know if I was taking too much of their time with my e-mails and my questions, or if it was difficult for them to understand my English (or perhaps other reasons).  I tried to let them know that they could respond in Norwegian, but I sometimes would ask for clarification if I didn’t understand something. 2004. Several churches that were originally built as Romanesque structures were modified or extended during the Gothic period. Meanwhile, the plumbing company in question had merged with one of the companies in my nearby town, so that there was a local office I could now go to.  This meant that I didn’t have to travel so far to contact the company anymore, and I also wasn’t stuck trying to deal with the young, uncooperative representative I had been assigned to. What I got after several minutes of running the water – instead of clean, pure water – was sand starting to come through the system.  I shut off all the faucets. Of course, I jumped at the chance.  Not only was this an opportunity to live in a beautiful, rural area (which I preferred, compared to living in a city), but this land had a long history and family connection.  This is where my mother grew up, where she laughed and played, where she was happy.  Also, one of my cousins owns the rest of this farm, so - although his home was a few hundred meters away - I would have relatives living right 'next door.'. Unfortunately, not everything goes the way we want it to (or the way we expect it to go). Then….  nothing.  The repairman just ceased communicating – no return calls or replies to emails.  I have no idea what the problem was, but the repairman apparently decided he didn’t want to do this work. Eventually, the floor tiles were installed in both bathrooms.  When I saw those photos, however, I noticed that the floor tiles had not been installed in the little sauna that was connected to the main floor bathroom.  I sent an e-mail to the tile company, reminding them about the sauna.  The following week, the tiles were there. After my arrival, I made contact with the supplier of the water treatment system, and I also visited their office (about 92 km – or 56 miles – each way).  I purchased a replacement water filter from this company, and I was told that they are a wholesale sales company, and, therefore, they usually deal through local plumbing companies (rather than directly with the retail customers).  They also said that the plumbing company that installed my system should be capable of servicing the system.  That’s when I finally decided that the plumbing company that I had been dealing with – or at least the young man that they had assigned me to work with – apparently didn’t want to deal with me anymore. The mix of tradition and innovation we incorporate in our designs improves energy efficiency, and our log homes require less maintenance and have a longer lifespan Throughout the 20th century, Scandinavian archeologists have also been attempting to reconstruct prehistoric houses. King Christian also founded the trading city of Kristiansand, naming it after himself. Maybe we’ll get it right the third time…. Temporary and provisional housing for the indigent, asylum seekers, and homeless. Roofs were often covered with birch bark and sod. Norwegian romantic nationalism also had an influence on Norwegian architecture from around 1840. With the application of a second coat of paint, I was hoping that I would finally be able to get what I originally wanted.  Because I was now living here, I would be able to communicate directly with the painting contractor to choose my colors and to tell him exactly how I wanted it painted. The first major undertaking was the Royal Palace, designed by Hans Linstow and built between 1824 and 1848. Many were destroyed as part of a religious movement that favored simple, puritan lines, and today only 28 remain, though a large number were documented and recorded by measured drawings before they were demolished. As the political power in Norway was consolidated and had to contend with external threats, larger structures were built in accordance with military technology at the time. The work was done with his own hands and the help of two professional carpenters. Centrally placed open-hearth fires with smoke vents in the roofs gave way to stone stoves and chimneys in early modern times. Most prehistoric longhouses had pairs of roof-bearing posts dividing the interior into three naves, and walls of palisades, wattle and daub or turf. Other great names of Norwegian functionalist architecture are Ove Bang, Fridtjof Reppen, Nicolai Beer (1885–1950) and Per Grieg (1897–1962). Nationalistic ambitions early on gave way to austere designs based on functionalism, and then to designs that emphasized human and ecological needs. Well… Friday morning came… and went.  No workers – and no equipment – arrived at my house.  That afternoon, I returned to the plumbing company again (40-mile round trip) to find out what was happening.Â. 38 Homes For Sale in Norway, ME. [31], This era—which had spent most of its force by the mid-1970s—led to an increased awareness of the physical and emotional needs of city dwellers.  This worked fine, as well, and I could access Internet service throughout my house.  All was good … for a while. [10] Later churches were influenced by Continental architecture.  I investigated and found that the sound was coming from what looked like a pressure-controlled switch near the input of water line from the well.  This meant another trip to the local plumbing company office. There is no road to the site so only light machinery was used and the site was changed as little as possible. During the final inspection, I was told by the general contractor that installing the washer and dryer was not part of their responsibility (even though they had placed the refrigerator and stove in their respective slots in the kitchen as a courtesy).Â. The structure of our timber-frame houses has been developed taking into consideration the specific climatic requirements and building rules in Norway. As I wrote back and forth to each builder during the following weeks and months (asking about designs, possible alterations, etc. While this process was ongoing, the water well had been dug on the property (by the way, I have seen this well-drilling crew work on other locations, and I was very impressed – they can dig a well, case it, and be finished and gone within 24 hours).  Anyway, when my well was dug and a water sample had been sent for analysis, it was recommended that I have a water treatment tank and filter installed.  Those pieces of equipment took up room that I didn’t have with the existing house plans.  After studying different options, I decided to have a small storage room added to the side of the house, with its own entrance.  This added approximately 50 square feet of floor space to the house.  Unfortunately, this small storage room changed the total size and layout of the house enough that another notification had to sent out to the neighbors – with the new plans – and they were given an additional 30 days to either comment or object to the house plans.Â.
