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 house, 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 fire pit and a packed earth floor, connected to the central hearth in the living space. 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.
