Oiltank cabin

After a blog break, made longer than I wanted by a faulty computer, I am finally back, and excited to start the new blog year 2011! What better way to start than by blogging about something unique and innovative? This unusual cabin on the little island Skrova, way up in northern Norway, made me stop in my tracks. How cool is this? Utilising an old storage tank for oil, the owner of this cabin built a three-storied holiday home for his family. All the internal fittings are custom made and fitted by the owner as well. Such an amazing way of creating a comfortable home out of a derelict space.
