A Future Museum?

The last of its kind A little red house
This is a very tiny house. At Malmvägen in central Handen. Been a few years since someone lived here. They don't make places like this any more. Today it is surrounded on all sides by newer, bigger houses. Sadly I don't know any history about it, and it will be gone very soon as a developer have announced that three new homes will be built on this property next year. After uploading these photos to flickr I wrote a short e-petition at the municipality democracy portal where I suggested that the local trade school Fredrika Bremer-gymnasiet would make this into a little school project. They could move the little house to the school (just a few hundred meters from here), renovate it and make it into a little museum about days gone by. The petition went live a couple of hours ago and hopefully enough local people will see it and agree with my idea. I also need to figure out where the museum should be placed if the idea became a reality and one funky idea that came to mind was to place it on the roof of the City Hall building!

It's a place with character. It deserves to be saved.

Haha! Not sure about your choice of placement Steffe but I love your idea of restoring and moving this wee piece of history next to the school :)

Congratulations for taking this initiative, I'm so pleased that it's working out the way you suggested. This house is really lovely, I'm delighted that you saved it from demolition ! Your photos of the inside are very cute too!
