Winter in Sweden

Winter in Sweden


A few years ago a new, very small village was built at Lillgården in Tungelsta. Six wooden houses, all painted with the traditional color Falu red. What I really like is the grass covered roof on the smaller buildings. They also have the traditional fence that we call a Gärdesgård, and all this combined makes for an idyllic view I think. Modern houses but with a more old style feeling.

I can't get enough of red houses, especially if they have a grass roof!

It is very good looking.

Complete with a heat pump and good insulation I'd guess.

Thanks people. WE do have a few Falu red painted houses here.

I sure hope so Per!

Is this someone's home??? What a lovely place to live. I'd love to have a pretty red house like that.

Newish I'd say. They have been there for a few years now.

Beautiful photo. Love the composition and the vibrant color in the house.
