A Swedish house!
This one's for Per Stromsjo at Stockholm by Pixels. Some time ago, he raised the question as to whether we had any "Swedish" houses (blue & yellow) in Ocala. Since then, we've searched high and low but could not find anything fitting that description.
We've driven by this place hundreds of times. It's located on a small but busy road in the woods just across from Silver Springs Park. The house, obviously quite old, was a weather-beaten white, badly in need of paint and a general sprucing up.
What a surprise. We drove by the other day and this is what we saw. Per Stromsjo's Swedish house!
