Sheds are everywhere in the Faroe Islands – in fields, on mountains, in town, and next to the house. The sheds next to the house are usually used to store food, and especially dried lamb. The slatted walls allow the cold salt air to blow through the shed to dry the lamb. All along the edge of the bay are small boat houses, that sometimes have a ramp for the boat. Other sheds are used for storage, especially for storing hay for the sheep in winter. Some sheds are multipurpose, for example, the shed in my garden has a boat house on the lower level and a storage shed on the upper level, where tools and hay are stored. Here are just a few of the sheds located around Fuglafjørður.
