established in 1898
Hanusarstova is the name of our house, originally built in 1898, expanded in 1915 and now totally renovated in 2014.
To be honest we bought this house sort of on a joke, we where looking for houses in the Capital area but after having searched for over a year, we drove past this old abandoned house one day and thought why not? We started our adventure in 2013, only a year after we got married by tearing most of the house down, saved what could be saved and built everything else up again. Most of the work that's been done to the house we've done our selves, with some good help from friends, family and this amazing community called workaway.
On desember 24th 2014, we moved in to this house and are now living the dream in a tiny village called Æðuvík, Faroe Islands. With our family being expanded from being only the two of us + our dog Lady - we are now 2 adults, have a foster daugther, two Border Collies, a barn cat, 13 chickens and a pet sheep.
Our house is located just a few 200 meters from the ocean and cliffs, little under 300 meters from the harbor and one hour drive from the capital, Tórshavn. We are surrounded by nature, sheep and beauty, with the most amazing sunrise each morning, with views of the northern lights and shooting stars on the terrace in winter, waking up to birds singing in summer and front view seats to the ocean and all it's glory.
