The house on the edge of the cliff.
History about the house
It started four generations ago when the grandfather of Jákup Petersen build the base of this house. They used it as a boat house for some years where they could fit two rowboats in it and the top floor was used for salted fish.
In 2002 Jákup got the idea to build a house on the edge of the cliff. The idea was a challenging one but Jákup and his son john managed to build the house almost by them selfs and by 2005 it was ready.
The house is not like any other house. Due to it’s location (on the edge of a cliff) it had to be more strong due to the storms of the North Atlantic weather that hits the house and the cliffs surrounding it.
The out side of the house is build just like any traditional house on the Faroe islands. Even though the house was built in 2005 the inside is more old style. The walls, the stairs and all the furniture is all made of wood. It feels just like you are on a ship sailing when you look out the windows. The house has a breathtaking ocean view and an amazing view of Kunoy island.
