Scandinavian houses with green roofs that look like a fairy taleVika
Scandinavians take their green roofs very seriously. The tradition of making such roofs has existed for a long time, and it seems that it is not going to disappear. They even run an annual competition for the best green roof project, organized by the Scandinavian Green Roofs Association. However, the Scandinavians love their houses with green roofs so much for a reason: such a roof not only looks very original, but it also has great advantages from an environmental and financial point of view. A green-roofed roof absorbs rainwater, reduces heating costs in cold weather, provides additional insulation, and is more durable. Below you can see examples of cozy Scandinavian houses with green roofs.
