Have farm picture need to know where it is in Norway!

Yesterday I received a copy of a picture of the farm where my great-great-grandma Olea Pedersdtr was born on 4 Apr 1858. I don't know where, it just says "Olea's birthplace" on the back. A cousin of my grandpa's had visited Norway and taken in probably in the early 1980s. Unfortunately he died in 1989 and that information has to been lost to (at least) my side.

Olea had a child with Johan L. Olaussen Stav in 1879 in Malvik, Strinda, Sør-Trøndelag. Two years later they were married there. On their first child's birth record it says Olea Pedersdtr Bu, from Skolesletten, "af Vaage." No Bu farms in Skolesletten. I have seen some around Vaage but haven't been able to get anything really. Her marriage says her father's name was Peder Olsen. That's all I have on her side of the family. People have looked around Malvik for me and she's not to be found until her first child was born.

Any help or suggestions with the picture's location would be wonderful!
