NORWEGIAN STABBUR-STYLE CABIN ON OX CREEK FOR SALE IN GORDON, WI
Modeled after a traditional Norwegian farm granary called a “stabbur,” this unique little cabin was built for people – not grain and hay. Stabburs are 2-story structures built narrower at the bottom and with a 2nd story that deeply overhangs the first level. The overhang was meant keep rodents out of the grains, seed grain and, sometimes, cheeses & meats stored inside. The security of a stabbur was vital to a Norwegian farmer’s success.
While stabburs date back to 900 AD, our stabbur was built in 1999! The first level of this 848 sq. ft. cabin is the main gathering space. The combined kitchen and dining areas feature pine plank floors, open beams that span the ceiling, a gas-log stove, an antique replica gas kitchen range, a kitchen island and an entryway with a slate floor.
The living room, open bedroom and compost bathroom are on the 2nd level. Again, there are pine plank floors, a vaulted ceiling with open beams and another LP gas log stove.
The stabbur’s interior is warm and woodsy. Finishing touches include panel doors, paned windows and pine beam corner trusses.
The setting is absolutely beautiful! There are 80 wooded acres with trails cut in throughout. The cabin sits at the confluence of the Mud Creek and Ox Creek. Both streams are Class 2 trout streams. The stabbur property borders 2,640 feet of Ox Creek – that’s a HALF MILE of stream frontage!
This cabin is a great getaway with lots of privacy in a peaceful setting. Trout fishing, wild life viewing, hiking & hunting are all fun activities for you and your family to enjoy!
