STABBUR & RORBU. A stabbur is a traditional wooden building where the food was stored on many Norwegian farms. Stabbur often have two floors and were used to store dried meat on the first floor and grains and flour on the second floor. When walking up to a stabbur, you can see a few inches gap between the stairs and the stabbur so that mice couldn’t get into the building and eat all the food.
A rorbu is a traditional fisherman’s hut. These are, not surprisingly, found on the coast, specifically in Northern Norway. They are built of wood and frequently extend over the water on stilts. They come in different shapes and sizes but are often simple structures and red in color. Today, many tourists rent rorbuer for accommodation during their travels, especially in Northern Norway.CorrectIncorrect
