The Color Boxes

Color Boxes

This is The Color Boxes, or Färglådorna. Not the official name of course, but that's what we called this housing area in Tungelsta when I grew up. They were built in the seventies and many of my friends lived here. The row houses come in all colors. The next alley, in case you are wondering have red houses, and looks like this. I saw in the paper a while back that one house was sold here not that long ago. It went for 2 Million SEK. With six rooms on 143 m², and with a small garden at 254 m². Before this housing area was built, there was a number of plant nursery's here. This is probably my last winter photo of the season. It looks like spring has arrived finally, so I will try to find some spring like photo for tomorrow!

I think this is a superb photo...perfect capture and the yellow stands out so well against the snow.

Interesting houses, too. I don't know how your currency works, but you mentioned a house that sold and it sounded as though it was very expensive.

Perfect photo! The one thing that would bother me here is how near the opposite house is...

There is something really cool about this photo that I can't put my finger on, but it is there!

Yes, you better get along with your neighbours here. Our currency works pretty much as any other currency. But I guess you want to know how much it is in USD?

Spring photos to come soon I hope!

The cool thing is the yellow houses and the vanishing path.

This looks such a nice place to live, quite near to neighbours which must give a feeling of community. Perhaps too near?
