Thank you @NK. The wicked or wattle fence is a new deco item for the Viking update and working like my other fences. I just used it to arrange this screenshot. Shipbuilding I want to include in some way but not sure yet how exactly. When the Vikings will arrive I can't say yet. I have a plan what to do in what order but not when it will be finished. Depends on how much time I can spend on it. :)

Nice inspiration from Finland. Maybe to build such a, how would it be called by banished people, Gate Barn?

Yeah, gatebarn would work.

@Tom Sawyer The more accurate term would be "gatehouse". Here's a pic of one that would fit in to the viking era. It's from Jomsborg-Wolin, Poland if you want to do further research.

Yes, that's a proper Viking gatehouse. The thing is that such fortifications are quite useless in Banished. This originally barn catches my interest because it can be fun to build as part of a homestead. If "gate barn" sounds strange it can be also just a "log barn" to make clear it matches the log cabins and then just has a nice passage. I have no feeling for special English terms.

darnokthemage, have you checked out the plymouth plantation sets by KID? thou more colonial than viking,the mod does have the fence and a blockhouse that acts as a TH. the rough weathered textures and thatch roofs might suit you. the training camp mod by RED has a fence part with hunters for the lookout towers.

Ah, that's where we already have photos and the well in game. Thanks for this overview.

I made a first draft of the gate barn.. :)

I'm trying to understand the legend of your picture. I know what's a stugan, a stall and a fähus. But google and me fail with bergkalasloftet and the härbrets. I would like to know how all these buildings were used. Please help!^^

The bergkarlaloft means mountain-man-loft. The Bergcarls were ironworkers and traders from dalarna.
härbre is a food storage house, often on short stilts or similar to prevent rats from climbing in. It was also often used to sleep in on the summers.
The squared off tun (yard) is typical of old farms from northern sweden. It places both the animal, storage and housing wall to wall, or near to eachother. Example of a Härbre in Norway.


Also might want to look at this, you will probably not understand much, but it's about traditional buildings and building styles in Westrobothnia, or Västerbotten in Northern Sweden. (And where i come from  :D ) https://www.vbm.se/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/1984_3_4.pdf Would love if we got a Västerbottensgård, or parstuga. https://www.vannas.se/Sve/Bildarkiv/Kultur/beb3.jpg

Thanks for the info. So it's a kind of home for travelling workers? I found a picture of it and it looks very similar to the one I made with this lodge style. Wondering if it's actually also something to live and not only for storage. Maybe to use it in game as a boarding house for 2 or 3 small families. Could be useful.

I would say maybe seperate it into two buildings? The bottom one being storage and the top being a boarding house?

Those "barns, granarys, storages" were used for sleeping only in summer times.
If you make that "gate barn" you should make it without gate too, it would be nice.
