Despite its modern and stylish exterior, the majestic Cabin Efjord naturally stands among shrubs and mountains in Efjord in Northern Norway.
– The cabin is our common space and our second home. It became our first big project together, Tone-Beathe says. Together with her fiancé Frode Kristian Danielsen, they built their dream cabin in Ballangen. Since they live on separate sides of the country, this has become the place where they meet on weekends and holidays. Tone-Beathe work as a teacher in Elverum, while Frode works in an audit company in Tromsø.
The dream of Cabin Efjord has its origin from 2014 when the couple visited Efjord for the first time.
– We went to Efjord to borrow Frode’s fathers cabin. I grew up surrounded by beautiful mountains and fjords in Sunnmøre, but this was a powerful nature-experience even for a “Sunnmøring”. I was completely speechless, Tone-Beathe says, and continues:
– After an amazing week in Efjord, our mind was made up – this was where we wanted to be. We had talked about building our own cabin prior to this trip, but by the end of the week there was no doubt.
After a long process of floor plans and preparations, the building process could finally start in 2016.
