Photographer's Note

A typical Icelandic multi-purpose room at the folk museum in Skógar.


The Skal farm is situated behind the sod farm, which shows along with the other two houses, the next era of the architectural development of the farms in the southern part of the country. The gables are high with white painted corrugated iron, which points to the early 20th century. The Skal farm was the westernmost farm of the Sida County. It is remarkable for its cow shed “Badstofa”, i.e. with the cowshed underneath the sleeping-, eating- and working quarters. It also contains a living room and a kitchen. It was built in 1919-1920 and was occupied until 1970. It was moved to Skogar in 1987 and rebuilt there during the next few years.
