To do

There is already a list of articles about houses to be created at:

There are many interesting historic houses in Denmark which still need to be covered. These include (see Danish wiki): Arreskov, Brundlund Slot, Egholm (Sæby Sogn), Gammel Vraa, Gram Slot, Grevinde Danners Palæ, Gurrehus, Hagenskov, Harritslevgård, Hindsgavl Slot, Jægersborg Slot, Klintholm Gods, Kongstedlund, Kokkedal Slot (Nordjylland), Kokkedal Slot (Nordsjælland), Langesø (herregård), Nyborg Slot, Nørlund Slot, Nørre Vosborg, Odense Slot, Sandbjerg Gods, Schæffergården, Skanderborg Slot, Slottet i Løgum, Sophienberg Slot, Spøttrup Borg, Sønderborg Slot, Sostrup Slot, Tirsbæk, Tranekær Slot

  • List of palaces and manor houses in Estonia gathers a lot of historic houses in Estonia, but could be further expanded. Most of the articles on the list are stub or start-class, and expansions would be welcome.
  • List of castles and palaces in Sweden gathers most historic houses in Sweden. Again, a lot of them are stubs or start-class. Furthermore, most of them are called "x Castle", after the Swedish word "slott", which can signify everything from a smallish manor to a large fortress. A very good start for many of them would be to re-name and move the article. In addition, here are a sample of articles on historic houses in Sweden that need attention and expansion, or creation:
