Finnesloftet (the Finne house) is probably from the time before the Black Death, perhaps before the year 1200. It has been an impressive building. The first level consists of two equally large jointed sheds with a narrow passage in between, and on these sheds rests the second level, which is stave-built. In this house there is a large hall at the front and a smaller room behind, towards the upper gable. There is strong evidence that the sheds have been storage places for food, and that the large room at the second level has been a hall for social gatherings, perhaps used by the Mikael gathering at Voss in medieval times.
Towards the end of the 1800s Finnesloftet was in pretty bad shape. The Society for the Preservation of Norwegian Ancient Monuments bought the house in 1891 and had it restored; one of the rarest wooden houses in Norway – and in Europe – from the Middle Ages.
