My name is Thor Barddal and I built this house a few years ago as a retreat for enjoying silence and nature. I have been a sculptor for more than 30 years and you will find some of my work on and around the property if you decide to be our guest. I live with my wife who is also an artist in the capital region, so if there any issues I am always available and happy to assist
