37 of 365 Building / Byggnad / Rakennus

Koristo 1782 is written on the sign.
Amazing outhouse/warehouse-building of the old manor nearby.
The manors in Finland were not very big building in themselves, but they had considerable acerage and a lot of people working for them. A couple of the very old houses have these amazing and reare warehouse-buildings that are quite unique to each manor.

I like the deep red against the snow and bright blue sky.

What a unique building. I like how you framed the shot with the tree trunk and branches.

Vilket vackert gammalt hus!Jag gillar de gamla nordiska trähusen. Och de får gärna vära målade i falurött med vita detaljer.

I have seen a similar style in outback Australian towns, but made of sandstone and they housed a combination Police Office, Court and Jail (Gaol) a sort of one stop punishment shop. Yours are much nicer and so colourful in comparison.
