Biddie to answer some of your questions... They do have basements in Norway. The houses are a lot like ours here, I guess I assumed they would be much different too. The White House was my grandpa oles house, my moms father, he lived there by the ocean growing up, and the lady with my mom and me is his sister. The brown house is where my gramp was born. It's was one of our last stops on our trip.
The grey small house was my dads fathers house, it's called bubakka. I didn't know the houses had names, I thought bubakka was a town. The bigger grey house is my cousin Rolf's house.he is the current owner of bubakka and built his house behind it. They live at the bottom of a mountain and took me up to the top in the car which over looks the water which happens to look just like our reservoir here.
The grass roofs have been around for years, the ones I have taken pictures of are at a ski mountain. Here is a new chalet just being built that hasn't been stained yet. The rich folks own these houses and go,there mostly on the weekends.
Ok my Norwegian relatives reading this, I hope I have explained this all correctly!!
