Usually, the windows and the rooms are small, so you could be sure that the house would be warm during the long, cold winter. A fireplace is almost mandatory – after all, what better way to stay warm then in front of the fire?

It’s common practice to have a green roof. That’s because a green roofing system offers a great insulation during both the summer and the winter.

A true Norwegian house should have a nice garden that’s well kept. Usually, not many of the properties have a fence. However, if you prefer to have some kind of a fence, then it should be short and made of wood.
