This crofter's farm and cabin, sited on the Line farm, dates from around 1780. It was in use until just after 1900. In 1997 it was thoroughly restored.

Træe is a traditional Jæren houe, with roof ridges pointing in southeast-northwest, as was the custom in those days. The living room is tiny, measuring just 3.5 by 3.5 metres. The kitchen has a pit and earth floor, connected to an oven in the living room. The roof is covered with handmade roof tiles. This type of building is characterised by a scanty use of timber, use of stone and straw covering, and a turf and birch bark roof. A traditional Jæren house often had a log construction, with end walls of stone, and an annex to house livestock. Here it extends underground, and was just large enough for two cows and manure drain.

Træe crofter's farm is situated just by Rv44 south of Bryne. A popular site for professional and amateur photographers.
