    Very interestin to see "everyday haouses" from this part of the world. It is not that long ago it looked the same in Sweden.
    I notice the have brickhouses and wooden doors,
    In Sweden the buildingtradition differ from north where they have large forests and, of course build wooden houses, to the very south where big trees are more scarce. Here they high and mighty began to build with bricks in the 12th century.
