As you may have read earlier I am now in Þingeyri, in the west fjords of Iceland where I grew up. It's a small town by the sea and I find it amazing to see how active the people who live here keep their homes in good shape and their garden tidy. Also there are quite a few houses that have been bought by families and used as summer homes for when they come to visit and they remodel the houses that may not always be in it's best shape but more often than not try to keep things as original as possible. Here's one example of a renovated house in Þingeyri where Svala and David Pitt live that appeared in Home&Delicious magazine a while back.
