The timber tradition

Our preserved medieval timber buildings are an important contribution to the international architecture. The art of timber has a long tradition and interesting development, from a natural and necessary use of resources to a way of distinguishing identity and pride in the local craft tradition. Despite widespread industrial housing construction around the 1960s, carpenters kept their grip on car luxury!

Dalarnas museum meets the log houses in different types of tasks; through, for example, consultancy, in the inventory of modernism buildings and in knowledge-disseminating projects.
