Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to approach care and maintenance of wooden housing stock in Sweden which recently became an object of contestation. The focus is on pragmatics of economic activities of houseowners as well as other actors that contrast the ideas of economic efficiency or affordability of new materials to the solutions of ethical repair and reuse in a traditional way. The paper presents empirical analysis and theoretical reflections on issues of economic, cultural and environmental aspects of renovation and preservation, and its different stakes as reflected in public discussion. Theoretically the paper is framed by the concepts of "regimes of engagements" with objects (Thevenot 2001) and "orders of worth" as legitimate evaluations (Boltanski and Thevenot 2006). The empirical material consists of interviews with professionals in the field of renovation of old buildings, and conversations in an online group among laymen, professionals, craftsmen and restoration enthusiasts who justify different strategies of intervention into the buildings materiality. The result of the analysis is the mapping of these often conflicting justifications spread on the continuum betwen the idea that the sustainability of repair is defined through its relevance to individuals and their comfort contrasted to the understanding of the building and its elements as a part of the larger milieu and based on ethical considerations of non-destruction and caring for the past and for the future. Using the empirical material I relate different types of justifications and interpretations to the practical issues of renovation, and show how pragmatic conerns become political.
