Eternit boards was the perfect building material. The cement mixed with asbestos was supposed to be maintenance free and became very popular, particularly along the coast where the weather can be rough. In the seventies it was discovered that the asbestos was highly dangerous when handled. In Norway it was forbidden in 1978. Still there are eternit board houses spread around the country.
