Famous 19th century author Peter Christen Asbjørnsen wrote his acknowledged A Grouse Hunt in Holleia after a
stroll through the then young woods of Nedre Hovin. Today, the same trees are used in Hovin Laft’s log cabin production. Log houses have been built in Norway since the Viking Age, and log timbering was one of the main construction methods in the country until the mid-1800s. Myhre’s farm, Nedre Hovin, is located in the heart of Norway’s fifth-largest lake, Tyrifjorden, an hour’s drive from Oslo. Today, the farm is surrounded by 75 acres of cultivated land and grazing suckling cows.
