Beautiful Scandinavian Houses Look Like They Belong in The Shire

Have you always wanted to ditch that noisy, fast-paced city of yours in exchange for a peaceful and green fields of The Shire? Ok, The Shire may be a made up place from J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels, but there are some places and houses that are similar to those comfortable, green-roofed Hobbit holes. For example, Scandinavia is filled with breathtaking fields and houses like that. However, having a roof made of green grass is not only a matter of aesthetics. Roofs like that absorb rain, cool the home in the summer and keep most of the heat inside during winter months. They also provide insulation, and can even last longer than the average roof. If you’re fed up with the urban lifestyle, but you can’t afford to move just yet, you can always enjoy these breathtaking images of grass-roofed houses.
