Our farmhouse Laxfoss is nice and cozy though all the furniture is old, it's comfortable. We have been renovating it for some years and will continue to do so. Some of the windows now have double glazing and renewed doors. Hot tub and trampoline.

A lovely cosy house with fantastic views in each direction. Great walking right out of the back door. We loved it!

Dear Liz. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Did you forget a book, Ursula K. Leguin Earthsea? I loved reading her when I was in my twenties. Best SciFi Adventures. Do you want me to send it or will it cost less to purchase a new one in the UK? You are welcome back any day. I will keep you posted with information regarding the second house we are rebuilding and will be up for rent soon. Even greater views with it's own waterfall. All the best, Sigrún and Thór.

The next thing we intend to renew is the shower. We know it's old and we don't like it ourselves. The man I know who can install a new one told me to contact him in October. I hope we find someone else to help us install a new one sooner.
