We’ve all heard the phrase, “Life is what you make it”, but how many of us truly put it to use? Benjamin and Ingrid Hjertefolger (say that name five times fast) decided to dramatically change their life by changing their living conditions.

Keep on reading to find out what it’s like to live in a glass dome off of an island in Norway!
