This Icelandic turf house is a callback to another era, from My Modern Met.
The quaint, red house is located in the small fishing town on the island of Borgarfjörður Eystri. Gram shared with us via email that parts of the house date back to 1899, with the majority of the woodworking done in 1934. The shed, also made with turf construction, was added later by the current owner. It’s a shining example of an Icelandic turf house, a traditional dwelling born from the hardships of the environment.
