Abandoned House

This is the true story of how a 130 year old house in mid Sweden ended. The last inhabitant was a man, a loner. The decay of the house started during his last sad years and was accelerated after his death two years ago. Everything was taken away and teared down by greedy people and thieves.
The decay forced the authorities to take a decision to burn the house. Probably for fear of getting a refuge for the wrong kind of people. Sad on an old solid timber house that perhaps could have been saved. I wonder what the walls have experienced during the 130 years. We will never know.
