The Grassy Roof in the Central Icelandic Farms

While driving from one side of Iceland to the other in what was supposed to be winter, I spent a fair amount of time in the grassy inlands where some sort of heat inversion kept the ground green and fertile. I came across a few of these homes with these thick peat grassy rooftops.

    This house is actually a renowation from the old torfbæir my great grandma lived in. It is now a fully functioning guest house run by my grandfathers twinbrother and his family. I agree with every one that your pictures are simply amaizing!
