This is as Swedish as a house can possibly get.
"Wooden" red panels with white corners and DkOrange clay roof tiles.
Owner also takes pride in owning a green environmental friendly Smart car.

Looks great. I feel like the roof needs some details like gutters. What about a chimney, it gets cold in the winters? Love the colors and your choice in red bricks.

What a lovly little house! I just love that little porch and all the details around it. Looks nice with that reddish roof (dark orange or?).

A few years back I also made a shot of making a model of a red Swedish house.

I see now that I should have made the roof red even if the original had black house.
Noting is impossible, the impossible only take longer time.

I love this!  :wub:  The design has a 'beauty in simplicity' about it which I suspect is an illusion:  there looks to be a lot of complicated angles in there.  I love the little porch detail, and that's a nice use of the grooved bricks.  :thumbup:

That is exactly the kind of house I associate with Sweden! It really reminds me of the Emil i Lönneberga tv series, which is a big part of the image I had of Sweden when I was a kid.

The model itself is beautiful in its simplicity, where you have effectively shown the wood siding, as well as the dark orange roof shows the typical roof tile color. I also like how you built the wood columns holding up the awning over the front door.

I love this, it's easily recognisable as Scandinavian - had it been white instead of red, it could just as well have been Norwegian. A very nice stuga :) and the little porch is adorable!

This deserves more comments! It looks very realistic, the first time I saw it I didn't think it was Lego! It gives the exact feeling of a Swedish house, good job.

That means, roughly, "see much Swedish for me". Google Translate?  :laugh:

I love this design! Have seen houses like this in about 20 countries, so maybe it represents a "world house," rather than just a Swedish one. The front porch is really special...congratulations!

Nice choice of colours here. I agree that the porch looks especially nice!
