8. Some say it's not Bjork's house. Cool house either way. Here's another link with more pictures:

Elliaey is the third largest island in Iceland having an area of 0.45 square km in area. It is believed to have formed in an eruption about 5-6 thousand years. The island is accessible via a rope on its lower east side and by a boat from the mainland. There are a few lonesome cattle to keep you company on the island and thousands of sea birds that use it for a nesting site.

Not much information is available about the island or the house. The only source of reliable information seems to be an Icelandic website that is very poorly translated by Google:

The island is a major veiihs owned Ellidagrim Society Islands, which engages in lundaveii eggjatku in summer and in spring. In the old days was called veiihsi "night". The first bed that was built on the island still stands. It is used for storage, and is west of the "creative". In 1953 a new night was erected at the foot Hbars the old house did not pass the test of time. 1985, work began on building a new veiihs on two floors which was integral with the house that was built 1953 . was completed with the construction of 1987. 1994 revealed that bed from 1953 had become ill take it that it was not possible to use it anymore. 'cause it was pulled down and built another house instead of in the same location, the building was completed in 1996. On period 2000-2001 was built a small house west of the bed that houses a sauna Ellidagrim Society Islands.
