Family Of 6 Are Living A Cozy Life In The Arctic, Thanks To This Clever Glass Dome.
The couple has been living in this home for three years now and they love it.
Everything in the house works the way it was designed to, according to the Hjertefølger. Ingrid also added that the house seemed to have a soul of its own, making it feel personal because it was something she and her husband built.
It wasn't easy building this paradise in the arctic.
The Hjertefølger had to design the home to withstand wind and extreme temperatures.
Food was also an issue that they had to consider before moving in.
Growing crops in the winter in the arctic is virtually impossible to do. But even with the dome, growing food is tough because people here spend three months without any sun.
The design of the house does allow the family to grow food five months longer than they could if they farmed outside.
You can expect to find apples, cherries, plums, apricots, kiwis, grapes, cucumbers, tomatoes, herbs, squash, and even melons among the various crops. Yummy!
Nature house has literally become the ultimate eco-friendly dwelling.
The gray and black water is reused to water and fertilizing the plants. The family even uses food scraps as compost, and they always make sure to use biodegradable household products to reduce the risk of contaminants in the food that they grow and later eat.
