A well worked photo Chris. My Granddad was born in a sod house in Nebraska. And... my father born in a log cabin in Illinois, for real. #10394886

Turf buildings on Iceland farms were the norm for generations; not many of them survive today, as farming has changed and/or died out in
many places, and newer generations of Icelanders head for the cities (or other countries.) This pair of farm buildings appeared to be no longer used;
we were fascinated by the larger structure built directly into the side of the rocky outcrop.
