Swedish Medieval House #3

The house are finished, thaks for following the building progress:)


I was quite common to decorate the planking around the doors, with wood carving similars to celtic patterns and paint them. I thought my planking was to small to do any wood carving, but I painted it in a dark red colour with some patterns i red...


It was quite common in early times and later for the poorer familys to keep there cattles in one separate part of the house during the winter. The warmth from the animals helped out to keep the house warm.


Small slots to let in some light and keep out the cold in the living area of the house.



My nest building will be a "Stolp Härbre" a storage building raised up on poles, like the one below.
