Most of the woodwork, including the timber floors and the grand staircase banister, was made in the Halvorsen boatsheds in 1950. 

The family hails from a dynasty of wooden boat makers dating back to 1887, when Halvor Anderson launched his first wooden craft in the south of Norway before settling in Neutral Bay in 1925.
