in my fantasies i have more than one house

may i introduce you to my new winter… and summer homes? they are in norway. at least i’m pretty sure they’re in norway, as the architect’s website is in norwegian (i’m guessing) and my google translate won’t activate.

my winter home is pretty rad because it has reindeer antlers on the pitch of the roof (i put them there)

my summer home is awesome because of all the windows, so i can let the light in until 10pm. or whenever it sets in norway. does the sun even set in norway in summer? i’ll soon find out.

you can come visit, i’ll try to find some scandanavian style pull out couches.

trees please

i’m pretty much sold on any and all houses that have trees incorporated into their design – there’s nothing nicer to me than a huge tree in the middle of a courtyard. or better yet, a tree in the middle of a house.
