Grødalandstunet is perhaps one of the finest and best-preserved farmhouses in Rogaland! This was a typical sea farm with a great view of the sea to the west. Grødaland is a farm museum today.

Grødalandstunet is an old farmhouse typical of the area of Jæren. The houses are from the 18th and 19th centuries and show how people lived here at that time. 

Gamlehuset (The old house)
Gamlehuset is a large Jærhus (typical house of the area Jæren). The oldest part of the buildings on the farm is the sleeping area. This was probably built in 1715. Later the house was rebuilt several times: 1791 and 1848. In several places you can see traces of ship timber from ship wrecks outside Grødaland. If you look at the house from the side, you see that the roof goes further down the back. It was common in old Jæren houses and was called "sitoga". Inside, the rooms are located as was usual at the time, with a living area and a room on each side of the kitchen and entrance. This house was used as a residence until World War II. The house has now been brought back as to how they believe the Jæren houses were decorated in the middle of the 19th century.

Torehuset was built in 1830. If you compare the two houses, you will clearly see how the Jæren house has changed. "Sitoga" is gone. The stove and part of the pantry have become living rooms. The kitchen has wooden floors and a wood stove, but also has its own well. The stairs by the entrance are turned in another direction and in the floor you can see the hatch down to the potato cellar. The use of the rooms was largely the same as in the old house. The bed used for strangers is still here, but they had the living room as well as an extra bedroom. On the wall in the northwest corner, you will find the inscription: "1831 TT and IJDG" which stands for Tore Toreson and Ingeborg Jensdotter Grødaland. They married on March 24, 1830 and built Torehuset when the farm was divided between Ingeborg and her brother. They lived here and had 12 children. The living area still did not have an oven, but they had Christmas dinner here nonetheless. Torestova is a newer part of the house. It has functioned as an extra living quarters, with its own entrance. There are also traces of chimneys. In the attic above Torestova there is a workshop. People have lived in this house until the end of the 1950s. Today, Torehuset is decorated as it was when the family lived there in the 1920s and 30s.

The barns
The oldest barn was destroyed in a storm in 1969, but Rogaland Folkemuseum rebuilt it when they took over the farm. You notice that there is no barn bridge on this barn, however you will find a barn bridge on the barn belonging to Torehuset. The barns are built in a cross frame structure. If you look at the construction in the barns, you see that it is mostly ship material. Here you will find masts, pipes and deck beams.
