Some of you know that I’m living my daily life in a house by the sea, or to be more specific; by a calm little bay. This house – my second home – is situated in a much rougher surrounding – on a cliff by the ocean.
The house is built in Siberian Larch, which become more and more grey, almost rock colored, when aging. The cladding need no kind of treatment, and can therefore be called eco-friendly.
Today everything is calm and sunny, but this region is known for its fabulous storms. Its a fantastic landscape – rain or shine.

    I agree that stunning is the word for the images and the landscape.

    I think I might choose that one as my primary residence!

    beautiful! I think most writers would love to inhabit such a landscape! I’m wondering, is there an architect or designer in the family?

    1. Sigrun says:

      Ha – my family is actual full of architects, it is how my father, my sister and my brother in law make their living, and even I started studying architecture before I wandered on into the less practical arts – .
      But this house isn’t designed by any of us, but by an architect called Torgeir Norheim. Our house is part of an area called Himmelrommet, you can see some details here: http://www.himmelrommet-ogna.no/wp-content/media/brosjyre_himmelrommet.pdf

    Aha! That’s what I thought! My husband is an architect, and I also was going to go to architecture school (before that, took some “interior design” courses). I can see from the brochure how special the house is! No wonder I admire your aesthetic so much!

      oh – blush – thank you! or paths have crossed 🙂

    Yes, it’s funny how that happens! 🙂

  7. Such breakers on that shoreline! And such a lovely house. Inspiring!
