Anne Karin & Kåre Nes is the generation to run the farm. There were originally 18 houses, but under the change in farming before World War I, many of the houses became redundant. 4 of the original houses were rebuilt at Vestlandstunet at Norsk Folkemuseum at Bygdøy.

Of today's buildings, Idneståva, is the prime. The house was built of cogged joint timber in so-called empiric style in 1863. It was close to disrepair when it was salvaged by Kåre Nes, and rebulit on Nestunet in it's original form. The house has been supplied with isolation and modern facilities in kitchen and bathrooms, without ruining the original character.

The rebuilding of the house has been done by qualified craftsmen under professional supervision and assistance by the County Curator.

The aim has been to create a living yard with a mixture of tradition and modern farming in progress.
