In older days
You can see a number of small shelters at the seaside. People working in the industry could keep a pig and some hens for their household in these small shelters. There where also common rooms for baking and washing clothes. A family of 10-15 persons could live in a small one-room-flat and at about 1890 they built one-room-and-a-kitchen-flat for the families.
The flats have got a modern standard, but not that modern. Many things are in the same way as in older days when people used to have fires to heat there flats and had to carry water to get it indoors and also used toilets outdoors.

The houses are situated near the sea, which make them attractive to us. But there is also small insects called gråsugga in Swedish (translated grey-woman-pig). The gråsugga also likes this environment and we have to get used to her and stand her because she is impossible to get rid of. She is quit harmless and she rolls together like a ball when she feels threatened. Also she is very good food for the birds.
Here on Öland the water is much carbonized. Because of that the bottom of our pots will become white of lime deposit. It does not look nice but it is also harmless and possible to wash away.
Smoking is not allowed indoors in any of our buildings at Södra Bruket
