Typical Tungelsta House


This house is on Skogsekebyvägen 36 in Tungelsta.A few meters to the left you can see this runestone. There's many houses like this one around Tungelsta. And in the whole of Sweden. The paint used here is Falurödfärg. We have used that paint here for the last 400 years or so. You can learn more HERE.

Nice photo and a interesting history about the paint. Funny how things progress like that. Now the city dwellers want it to so they can feel as if in a simpler time.

Very nice house! I like this style with the paint - the red for the house and then some sort of "framing" in white for the edges...
