A Colorful Swedish House

 

Swedish house

 

My Mom shared this photo with me the other day. Her cousin (on my Mom's maternal side of the family) still lives in this family home in Fagersta, Sweden. I love the colors and it reminds me of many other classic Swedish homes I've seen in photos...but not yet in person.

 

I also recently received a copy of the family tree on my Mom's maternal side...as best I can tell. It's a little challenging to figure out everything but it goes back to the 1600s, and the family is pretty extensive - my maternal grandmother was one of 8 kids.

 Best trip of my life was a train trip the length of Sweden where you got to see all the different architecture where there were houses Jeff Dowler

WOW, even the roof is red! BUT of even greater value, in my eyes, is you have your family tree back to the 1600's Jeff Dowler

I love the color of the home.  How wonderful to have this kind of a family tree. A

I really like the colors of that home as well, we don't see much of that here, as the HOA's would have a fit, haha.  Everyone wants the bland neutral colors, it seems too important these days to follow the herd and fit in.

My family also hails from Sweden, and my Mom, Aunt, and Grandmother visited there to meet many of them. Mom did a lot of work on the family tree and I still have all of her notes - maybe someday I'll have the time and ambition to dig into them.

Hi Jeff - this is really intreging.  My sister has been doing this too.  Great that you still have a connection in Europe after all those years.

Now this home truly "POPS" Jeff. Love the colors & how they contrast each to make this home truly stand out.

It reminds me of the homes back in the maritimes of Canada... and I bet there are some connections there.

I would love to visit someday Paul S. Henderson, CRS, REALTOR®, 

Doug Dawes  - yes the family tree is a prize, along with a bunch of other letters and information not in the tree. I need to scan it so I have it secured

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  - the family tree IS, indeed, very special although it's a little hard to follow when you get back a few years. And the other old letters and photos I have are pretty cool.

Brian England  - that's certainly true here as well in our subdivisions.

Marte Cliff  - look what we have in common!! Have fun with the family tree!

Grant Schneider - I met some of the family from Sweden many years ago but many are now gone. I suspect I still have some relatives other than my Mom's cousin - will have to ask my Mom.
