The Melheim house

The Melheim house

The Melheim house was built in the winter of 1939-1940 on the farm Melheim at Indre Hafslo in Luster. It is a so-called central chimney house. It was built with one-and-a-half storeys on a cellar with a stone foundation wall. With pipes leading into the central chimney, the house was heated by means of wood stoves in all the rooms.

The building is a mixture of the Swiss and the Art Nouveau styles.
The interior decoration is based on statistical information how an average family in Sogn lived around 1940.
