Ullmas - Description and history

Ullmas is a small broken off piece from the mainfarm called Kettis. Kettis can be traced back as early as 1680, Kettis is placed in Månsta by, Älvdalen - Dalarna Sweden. Ullmas was builled in 1885 at Kettis, but was moved by horse and waggon to the place where it stands today in 1886 - 87. The technique was to mark every board and stone, load it to the waggon and move all the material and then to rebuilled the houses again. This was indeed a impressive work at the time.

Ullmas is a typical 1800 dalahouse with lumber on a stone ground. In 1887 Ullmas was the home of my grandfather and grandmother, "Anders Kettisen" and "Travar Margit Beronius" from Åsen and Näsets villages. Ullmas was used as a "Utgård" whitch meens that Ullmas was still a part of the main farm Kettis, but was builled at a place far from the main farm. Ullmas was used to live in all of the year* and is still used by me (* up to East/Winter in 2001/PK). Here is a two floor building and a 30 meter long economybuilding for live stock. This was for the time an impressive length and size of the stables. In the stables were also the living quaters of the servants called "piga" whom was taking care of the annimals existing of horses, goats and cows.

I bought Ullmas in 1988 and was at the time still in wery good condition. I have since then rebuilled and fixed both of the buildings to their status as of today.
