Gapahuk, or halvbære as it is called in Engerdal. This simple construction was built to give the haymakers shelter while working in the outlying fields. They were mostly used as a place to rest, but in some cases as lodgings for the night. The halvbære was also built close to rivers as a resting place during the log drive.
It was common to build a nying (log fire) in front of the opening. This was in particular used during the log drive to dry clothes. The nying would burn for a long time and give off a steady heat to the halvbære, when it was not too cold outside.
