Iceland Turf House Workshop

May 31st, 2018

I attended a 4-day turf house construction workshop in Iceland at Tyrfingsstaðir, Skagafjörður. Our instructor - Helgi Sigurðsson of Fornverk ehf - guided us through the reconstruction of the stone foundation and turf walls of an old farm building. The course was organized by BYGGÐASAFN SKAGFIRÐINGA - Regional Folk Museum. More information about Icelandic turf houses can be found here.
