Baðstofa

This is a recreation of a 19th century baðstofa—literally translating to “bathroom”, but actually a communal bedroom + living room. Viking settlers built “bathrooms” for heated bathing and saunas only, but as time passed more and more living was done in them. Poorer folks had to settle for one with a dirt floor.
