The bath-house was built at the end of the 1930s and, together with two raised shacks and a collapsed earthern cellar, is situated on the lower side of the farm-yard. Because of the risk of fire, the bath-house tended to be positioned at quite a distance from the most important buildings on the farm. The bath-house tradition did not derive from Østerdalen, it was something the family adopted from their Finnish/Kven neighbours in the north. The bath-house has two rooms and is built of notched planks with a board-covered roof.

The raised shacks are situated on the edge of the farm and was built during the 1930s, when more land was cleared for grass production.
