House (NO)

For many years this house has stood empty next to the E6 towards Oslo. The sound of cars and trucks and the motorway bridge next to it makes it understandable that no one want to live here. The owner want to demolish it and build office buildings here. The problem is that it lies within a 100 meter limit the Public Roads Administration (Vegvesenet) has placed along the road. This limit will ensure better development of the road in the future and protect against noise and dust to the surrounding homes / offices.

The house has two floors plus attic and vandalism is extremely clear. There is almost no windows left and no doors (except for some stacked in a room). It is said to be the last residents who took the doors and windows. Inside there is rubbish on the floors but really not much exciting to see. An overturned water tank, Mickey Mouse wallpaper on a child’s room and some old LP covers.

The house is now demolished.

    1. Ah det visste jeg ikke. Takk for info. Var kanskje på tide egentlig. Bra jeg fikk tatt litt bilder av stedet før det forsvinner da.

  1. Jeg og noen venner holdt på å leie huset til kollektiv på begynnelsen av 90-tallet. Et perfekt sted for partymennesker som vil slippe naboklager:-)

    Enden på visa var at vegvesenet som nevnt hadde planer om fire-feltsvei og huset ble leid ut som lager til en entrepenør noen år, siden sto det bare tomt.
