Swedish Medieval House

This house are built on a 12x8cm base using 5mm balsa staffs. To get some inspiration and knowledge about how they looked I have study Swedish Medieval Houses IRL and in a couple of books from the Darlecarlian Museum.

Ther are still quite many medieval houses leaft and in use in Darlecarlia, the oldest one from about 1230´s you can see at "Gopsmor" an open air museeum that is a part of the Zorn museeum in Mora.

Here are a small film about Gopsmor and Anders Zorn. The buildings in the film are from 1230 to about 1800 and ofcourse renovated through time...



And here are some VIP pictures of my first house...


A steady foundation...


The timberman himself...my first "Civilian" for this project...


To keep the heat inside they had very small doors windows/holes. They didn´t use glass as that was hard to come by and was expensive and fragile, so they just used a trapdoor to close the "window"


Just the roof left...
