Swedish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Attested since 1979, coined by Lennart Holm, the General Director for the National Board of Physical Planning and Building (Planverket), a blend of Friggebo +‎ bod (shed, shack), the former being the last name of Birgit Friggebo, the Minister for Housing at the time.

The friggebod reform implied that anyone could build a shed of maximum 10 square meters on their premises without obtaining a construction permit from the municipality. From the onset of 2008, the area was increased to 15 square meters.
