SONIA 🇮🇸LIFE IN ICELAND

‘Hairy houses’ • I love these little buildings, you find them scattered across the countryside here in Iceland. They were mainly used by sheep farmers. 🐏 •
Interesting story, the Viking tells me that these huts were also used by farmers overnight. Some have timber floors and the sheep would be kept beneath, in a kind of basement. Heat rises and so this would help to heat the hut for the farmer. •
That sure would be a mess to clean up the next morning!! 🇮🇸 #LayoutlinesIceland
