Gallery: June 12 — Trub & Fankhaus

Herewith the first days of my (proportionally) long stay in the Emmental.

In Trub, I stayed in another Sternen. This was my room.

It was large, with this L-extension for the sink area.

Looking out the window to the grounds of a school and the countryside beyond.

An awesome little car in the parking lot.

Here, on the next morning, we see the wings under which the Gasthof Löwen takes its guests.

Up in the center of the village of Trub: an unusually shallow-roofed wing of a house.

3806.jpg

Stabilization brackets, I guess, on the corner of a building.

Parish house of the church. Nice fusion of Lower Bernese tradition and modernistic elements.

An electricity substation with its own Ründi roof.

Sometimes the huge Emmentaler hipped roofs have an almost sci-fi-like quality.

3823.jpg

Complex compound roof brace angles.

3824.jpg

Another cut-off roof corner where the road impinges.

3825.jpg

Another huge roof. I like how the ramp is grass-covered.

Sleepy pidge. It was in an aviary just to the side of the road.

This one goes out to Butch Graves.

This was beside a trail up in the woods above the roads and fields. I'm not sure whether it's firewood or what.

3852.jpg

Some absolutely colossal lumber. I think I counted something like 150 rings in this log.

3859.jpg

This house is rather unusual because it has perpendicular wings rather than one monolithic mass.

3863.jpg

Count the number of floors and then extrapolate for the roof — this Bauernhof could be six stories high! It's wholly enormous!

3867.jpg

Yep. (I don't actually remember why I included this one. But here it is.)

The back of the Sternen.
