Norwegian Family Builds Straw House in the Arctic Circle

Completely made from natural materials the construction was called as Naturhuset, or natural house. The top of the building is covered with an unusual glass dome which hides about 180 square meters of gardens and terraces.

The couple has no doubt that such building will not let them freeze in the winter, and even hopes to grow up oranges and tomatoes in the northern part of Norway – on Sandhorney island.

“We live in the northern part of Norway, where weather is very windy and cold, so we wanted to protect the house around so that fruits and vegetables could be grown,” – said the head of the family Benjamin Hertefølger.

It has already taken one and a half years and $490,500 to build the natural home.
