On the east side of the current there are four boatsheds that have probably been built in the early 1800s. The sheds have been erected in a framework structure, a technique that goes back to prehistoric times. The poles and the cross-running bit make out a frame, the longitudinal stakes support the roof structure. The open walls without cover are a typical feature for the inner fjord areas. The boathouses may be clad with horizontal or vertical planks. In the boatsheds at Straume the “town wood” was stored before being transported to Bergen with the Oster ships.
