    Out by our summer place there is a house called The America House, but
    its real name is "Rejtet". It is deserted since the 70's and has been
    in decay since then. We snuck in on midsummer's eve and snapped some
    pictures.

    Some nice work there.

    Interesting it is called "America House" in that it looks like a lot of
    places in Detroit today.

    Hehe, yeah well I think it's called that since it has a slightly
    American style to it (apart from the decay, that is :)

    It certainly isn't built in any Swedish style :)

    I thought it might be what builders these days call "artisan style" but
    it's not, AFAICT. A characteristic of that style is a porch supported by
    pillars, square in cross section, but tapering towards the top.
