Karlson Hus = Dream House


Just look at all these gorgeous dream houses,
 I want them all!
My most favorite is the Glasmastare Villa but I love the yellow ones as well.
(and the others too of course that I've posted here)

I haven't read up on them that well but I understand they are all built in parts in the factory and then put on a slab.
I also think their methods are green so what's not to like? (only that it is all the way in Sweden...)

Sigtuna

The red Glasmastarevillan looks a bit like the house we used to live when we lived in Sigtuna don't you think?
I haven't found a good picture of the front of the house (in the early 90's we didn't have a digital camera yet so I now have to look through all our old photo albums...) but here at least you get the picture so to speak.
We even had a sauna in the basement!
I think it is my most favorite house that I've ever lived in so far, although the one in Indianapolis comes a close second.
The only 'bad' thing was that it was situated on the campus  of a boarding school (Sigtuna Skolan Humanistiska Laroverket for those in the know) and so we always had lots of students and staff in the area...

  2. Mike's blog music is great. So is your Sigtuna house which looks a lot like Glasmastarvillan.
    Yes, KarlsonHus are known for their ecological thinking, that's good.
    It's midday here in Sweden right now and I'm already tired.......

  3. Ik ga ook voor de rode, komt vast door de serre en de kleur.
    Jullie woonden in een echt "Madieke"huis.

  4. Thank you for your kind comment in my blogg! It is nice to hear that you like Glasmästarvillan too, and I agree, your Sigtuna-house looks a lot like it!
    You also liked Humlebacken, which pleases me especially, since our eldest daughter and her family owns it and live there! Humlebacken is only 5 minutes walk from where we live.
    Have a nice weekend!

  6. Of course you can play all the way from Seattle. If you have been following my blog, I guess you have seen that "we" are building a "Glasmästarvillan" right now, in Sillaröd in Skåne. It is a lovely house!
    Have a nice day
