Tumbledown

I was driving through the Hvassahraun summer house cluster when I spotted this rather decrepit structure, and of course I had to go check it out. I assumed it to have been partially burned down, but when I came closer I neither saw nor smelled any sign of fire, but as you'll know if you have explored a burned-down building, the smell of soot and ash can linger for months, even years, after the event.

No, there had been no fire in this house, but neither was this a sign of neglect. The pile of planks at the back told me that someone was in the process of tearing it down.
