The stove was taken out; an oven was built into the masonry. The large iron Hearthstone was broken and could not be used. 

Since the building was to be erected on its new site exactly as the original, it was important to mark all the logs, stays, girders and roof trusses. The roof trusses were slender and nicely shaped. 

The local housing committee in Gagnef was concerned about the construction. They questioned whether the roof would hold the weight of the snow. But, it had carried the weight of heavy Swedish snow for 100 years! 

Besides the marking the construction was also documented with some ten photos like this one. Back
