Royal Architecture Newbie

In assosiation with the local department of The Society for the
Preservation of Norwegian Ancient Monuments, in Trondheim I'm doing research on Norwegian perfabricated chalets produced from 1885 to 1920. The two major companies in our district was M. Thams & Co, Orkanger and Jacob Digre Ferdighusfabrik, in Trondheim.

There is not much left archives after these companies, so locating their exported chalet is a bit of a puzzle. I have thou found some examples. This link will guide you to our website and our registrations so far.
Etterlysning! Ferdighus fra M. Thams & Co og Jacob Digre. Hvor finnes de idag? - Fortidsminneforeningen Den trønderske avdeling

Christian Thams, and his company M. Thams & Co at Orkanger had several commissions for King Leopold II.
Thams, who was Belgian Consul had close connections to the king.

According to a Thams biography from 2006 he and the architect Finn Ivar Knudsen designed, produced and raised The Royal Summerhouse in Oostende 1903, The Royal Stabels in Oostende 1904 in, The Royal Chalet, guard house and Garden pavilion at Ravensijde 1904.
They also did all wooden interiour connected to a restoration in The Church of Notre Dame in Laeken, 1899.

If someone know more of these Norwegian chalets in Belgium or in other countries, in Swiss- or Dragon Style, we are very interested to know.

Here some interesting links:
