A shithole of a shack
This historic house is known as both Sjåbakkenhuset (Sjåbakken’s house) and Sjit helvedes kåken (can be translated to a shithole of a shack) and has these two names for good reasons.
A man by the name Anton Sjåbakken lived in this house after coming back home after the 2nd World War. His original home, like the other houses in the Manndalen, had been burnt down by the Germans during the 2nd World War, in 1944.
