From the picture, the house is looking old but the thing which surprises me a lot is that all the parts are in good condition. And this is really amazing.

Most definitely indeed. Don't get to see stuff like this very often, especially in such detail.

My customer is still thinking of the colour so it was The right thing from me to do to just paint it white in september. Atleast the wood is seald and ready and The right colour is just a minor detalie.
The house is dated back to aproximently 1900. It was The head office to a mill that exported timber atleast to GB. It had about 100 employed.
The new doors are as old as the house. They are originaly from a mansion (must check The right word) on south Finland. I think it had burnt down because the paint looked like it.
Normaly our old houses lasts very well IF the roof is OK and the foundation is higher than 30cm/1'. The pine of which the houses were built from were slow grewn and old. They contain hartz that are consisted of different types of penisilin so it wont rot. Also the paint that was made of boiled linseedoil and lead was very good and prevented wood from getting wet but alowed it to dry after The rain.

Esko is the top coat of finish on the doors old varnish? If it is a quick stripper for old time varnish is lye (Sodium Hydroxide). You can usually buy it at the grocery store here under the brand name Gillets. Put a cupful(or 2 for a stronger solution) in a glass or stainless steel container (aluminium and plastic dissolve), add 4 cupfuls of water. Don't let it splash as it will burn you. Use safety glasses, rubber gloves and use outdoors or in a well ventilated area. Use a natural bristle brush as plastic based bristles will melt. Paint it on the item to be stripped and let it sit. Some times you can just hose the finish off. Works well on lead paints as well. My dad showed me this over 50 years ago ant the first time I used it was on a set of highly carved oak chairs. I didn't have to scrape any finish just hosed it off. It even bleached out the old stain back to natural white oak color. Just don't soak the wood with water for an extended time. If you try this do a small piece in an inconspicuous area first to see if it is going to do the job.
